Skywarn Recognition Day
12/4/2021 0000Z to 2400Z – 7PM to Saturday to 7PM Sunday local time
Always the 1st Saturday in December
SKYWARN™ Recognition Day was developed in 1999 by the National Weather Service (NWS) and the American Radio Relay League (ARRL). It celebrates the contributions that SKYWARN™ volunteers make to the NWS mission, the protection of life and property. Amateur radio operators comprise a large percentage of the SKYWARN™ volunteers across the country. Amateur radio operators also provide vital communication between the NWS and emergency management if normal communications become inoperative.
