My first spotter map and ID card. I was the first non-HAM radio spotter here in Williamson County. FCC callsign KD5PNN replaced WI-1 when I became licensed in 2002. I telephoned reports in directly to the NWS office prior to then.

The National Weather Service activates our spotter networks 24x7 whenever severe weather directly threatens our south central Texas area.

Upon network activation, amateur radio operators jump into action forming radio networks of mobile and fixed stations. Network control operators relay realtime visual weather observations directly to the National Weather Service from Skywarn trained HAMs in the field. Early warnings during flooding and tornadic conditions are key to protecting lives and property. Click on my Skywarn badge above for full details on this program.
