Georgia Skywarn

The frequencies listed below are the current frequencies for the Georgia Skywarn Linked Repeater System as of 3/2012. These frequencies are changed sometimes for various reasons such as repeaters being down. If this happens we will try to reroute the system. Please remember if you cannot get into the "System", use other means of getting your reports to us. You may want to relay to someone who can get into the "System". You may also call the National Weather Service in Peachtree City (NWS in PTC) with your severe weather report at 866-763-4466.
Please be sure to include your Name, Phone number, time of severe weather or damage and location thereof.

Current SKYWARN Class Schedule

Spotter Handout with important info for any Spotter or Skywarn Group

(The above handout has the following info; Registration info, Contact Info, What to report in a severe weather outbreak, How to report, Where to report this info to, and other important info. Please pass this handout along to your organizations and friends.)

Skywarn Nets

It is encouraged for severe weather reports to be brought to your local Skywarn net first if possible. From there the local Skywarn nets SHOULD provide some sort of "liason" between the STATE net listed below and their local net. By all means reports should be sent to the NCS at the NWS as quickly as possible. Using this setup will help with congestion during heavy outbreaks and allow those severe reports versus non-severe reports to get through.

Echolink

We are operating under the call sign of KI4NGD-R on ECHOLINK. This is on 145.210- (131.8) Fayetteville,GA . Echolink is on full time unless technical difficulties require the control ops to turn it off.

Streaming Audio
Streaming audio is compliments of WB4GWA. The audio is from the Concord repeater (145.250- 110.9hz). This repeater will be linked in to the Skywarn net during activations. Click Here for streaming audio.


HF Radio

If conditions allow, and we have the man power at the station (in PTC), we will be operating on 3.975 Mhz. There are times that we use a "relay" when we are short handed. There are also times that we have to use 7.275mhz. (Normally during daytime hours) But we will also use a relay from 3.975mhz. If there is not much traffic or conditions from Alabama are slowly moving our way, we will monitor the Alabama Emergency Net on 3.965 MHz. If no one is on frequency from the NWS in PTC ask to be "relayed" in.


I cannot stress the following point enough. Ham radio is a hobby and is of great service to public services such as the National Weather Service. Remember if you have a severe weather report and cannot get it in by the above means.....CALL ON THE PHONE! Others down the road may benefit.
