The NWS offers Skywarn Webinars to educate the public and is free of charge to attend. Amateur Radio Operators use 2m/440cm radios to communicate severe weather reporting criteria to spotter repeaters that report to Liaison repeaters that the NWS ham radio team listens and talks to non-ham operators, call into either the NWS for severe weather criteria or in an emergency or tornadic event. We encourage everyone to get their amateur radio license.
