Greater Pee Dee Skywarn Is Taking Membership from anyone who wishes to Help report Severe Weather during Our Skywarn Nets Which are on 146.745 Mhz PL 82.5 For Hams....Non-Hams can use other methods in reporting Severe Weather...Please Email us IF you are a NON - Ham Operator at [email protected] Applications Are Listed Below
The Greater Pee Dee Skywarn Group was formed in 2013 with the idea to integrate Ham Radio and Social Media in severe weather reporting. The idea is that most Storm Spotters these days are on social media sites, more than on Ham Radio, and there are a lot of Ham Radio operators that are on Social Media. Marry the two together, and you have a great network of storm spotters within your community. We did just that when we created Greater Pee Dee Skywarn Group.
Our Skywarn Repeater has a ham radio net that is held each night at 9PM local time on the W4PDE amateur radio repeater. Tune in to us each night on 146.745, it has a negative offset and a tone of 82.5
During severe weather events, we will activate a skywarn net, take check in’s and severe weather reports and pass them along to the NWS. We normally activate in Active mode for Severe Thunderstorm Warnings & Tornado Warnings, as well as in Watch Mode for Tornado Watches.
Our Primary area of coverage includes:
