Skywarn™ Recognition Day
Skywarn™ Recognition Day was developed in 1999 by the National Weather Service and the American Radio Relay League. It celebrates the contributions that volunteer Skywarn™ radio operators make to the National Weather Service. During the day Skywarn™ operators visit NWS offices and contact other radio operators across the world.
