#Skywarn and #hamradio

Do you have three ways to get information from the National Weather Service?

The Weather Service, for years, have reminded folks that Weather Radio is reliable but it can fail.  Local media may be broadcasting during an ice storm but your AM/FM/Television may not receive the signal during the power outage.

It's important to have three ways to call, text information to the National Weather Service.  Ham Radio is a reliable method, even on simplex, when the repeaters fail.  

Is amateur radio part of your communications plan?

Automatic Packet Reporting
System is useful to send text
messages also.
