Lowcountry Skywarn Net
All amateurs are cordially invited to check in to the Lowcountry Skywarn Net every Tuesday night at 9 PM on the CARS linked repeater system: 146.790- in Mt. Pleasant, 145.250- in Summerville, 145.410- on Seabrook Island and 147.045- (103.5 tone) in St. George. The net is sponsored by the National Weather Service in Charleston. The purpose is to practice calling a Skywarn net and to encourage hams to relay weather information to the National Weather Service in Charleston if a net is activated. If severe weather is occurring or imminent at the weekly net time, the net will be cancelled for that week. You do not have to be a trained weather spotter to participate. You'll be asked your name, callsign, spotter number (if you have one), location, and a brief description of current weather conditions at your location. A short training topic relating to severe weather or amateur radio operations will be covered. We look forward to hearing from you!
