Join Martin County SKYWARN
Join the Group
Any person interested in reporting weather phenomena is welcome to join Martin County SKYWARN. You need not hold any sort of license, you do NOT need to be a member of MCARA or Martin County ARES. You must have some free training from the National Weather Service
. Many "spotters" do have Amateur Radio licenses and the activities sort of complement each other well as "hams" have more than just a cell phone to communicate potentially urgent weather information to our local weather bureau.
Check our Events calendar for the next FREE SKYWARN class in Martin County
Martin County SKYWARN has:
- no dues
- no costs (other than incidental , E.G. transportation, optional logo items, etc)
- free training provided for official "spotters"
- lots of gratifying moments when you help fill in the missing data or warn of weather events.
- Tools required is your willingness to observe and report severe weather with your eyes and ears.
