SKYWARN Training -- Apply if interested!

Several people have contacted the ARA's Emergency Communications liaison for the County (and club director), Butch Eigenbrode  (NI2W), about the possibility of holding a SKYWARN training.

We are currently in the beginning phases of a possible training program, and are currently gauging interest. We are hoping to get a good head count of those interested in learning more about the weather and the SKYWARN program in general. The training usually takes about two hours. If there is sufficient interest, we will move forward with setting up a class. At this point we do not have a specific date or time.

If you are interested, please email Butch and let him  know that you would like to be placed on the class roster. His email address is NI2W@ARRL.NET.

For a little background of SKYWARN, it is a federal program established by the National Weather Service (NWS) to provide critical weather information throughout the United States. For further information on this worthy program, please navigate to the National Weather Service's own SKYWARN page.





Be part of

something special!

Whether you're “old-timer” or are brand new to amateur radio, the Antietam Radio Association is a great place to meet new people and learn more about the art, science and skill of Amateur Radio. Being part of a club increases the enjoyment you will get from the hobby, so with that in mind, if you are within the regional Hagerstown area, join us!

Membership is not required to attend meetings; they are open to all who are interested.

If you are not located within a reasonable distance, we still encourage you to find a club close to you… a good starting point is the ARRL’s club search (the ARRL is the Amateur Radio Relay League, which is the National Association for Amateur Radio).
