Weather and ham radio have a lot in common, most notably SkyWarn. This week, episode 210 of WeatherBrains, “a weekly audio show delivered by the Internet that unites weather geeks worldwide” has a pretty long segment on amateur radio.
Starting at about 7:45 of this episode and lasting past the 40:00 minute mark, the amateur radio segment includes guests Allen Pitts, W1AGP, the PR Manager for the ARRL, and Rob Macedo, KD1CY, SKYWARN Coordinator for the National Weather Service in Taunton, MA. James Spann, WO4W, is the show’s host. They talk about all kinds of things including emergency communications in Haiti, SkyWarn, and the Civilian Weather Observer Project.
