NWS Wakefield SKYWARN
Amateur Radio Support Team
WX4AKQ Wakefield, VA
This page attempts to answer many of the frequently asked questions about our team and the SKYWARN program. If there's something you'd like to know that's not listed here, take a look at our Other Q&A Topics, check the SKYWARN Operations Manual, SKYWARN Training Portal, or send us an e-mail.
Do you support storm chasing/mobile spotting?
We do not actively endorse the practice but will accept reports from storm chasers. Please do not endanger your safety for the SKYWARN program.
I want to form a storm chasing team. Can we coordinate our activities with SKYWARN Net Control?
Please find another communications venue for your chase operations. We will gladly take your reports into our net, but your storm chasing radio traffic will likely impede the passage of other SKYWARN traffic.
