Amateur radio operators celebrate National Skywarn Recognition Day (Wisconsin)

The Mississippi Valley Amateur Radio Association celebrated National Sky-warn Recognition Day with the La Crosse National Weather Service. 

The Mississippi Valley Amateur Radio Association (MVARA) is a group of ham radio operators from the La Crosse, Wisconsin area. 

During times of severe weather, amateur radio operators will work in the field and relay real-time weather conditions, like tornado position, height of flood waters and wind speeds, to the National Weather Service (NWS). 

On SKY-warn Recognition Day, amateur radio operators will make contact via ham radio to other radio operators throughout the United States and the Canadian Provinces.
