The 2021 SKYWARN® Recognition Day event goes from 00:00 UTC 12/4 (7:00pm 12/3) to 00:00 UTC 12/5 (7:00pm 12/4), for the NC Piedmont regional area. We have obtained a Special Event Callsign for that day using the callsign K4S (https://www.qrz.com/db/K4S). See that QRZ page for K4S for more info on what frequencies and channels we will be operating on. The K4S Special Event Station is sponsored by the Metrolina Spotter Group and we take any and all check-ins from anywhere. Our President is David Coviello, callsign AK4FD, who has been an Advanced Skywarn Spotter for over 16 years now and has various different classes and education relating to weather and atmospheric sciences, as well as Emergency Management.
If you aren't a licensed ham radio operator or don't have a radio handy you can always contact us and check-in with us using our Zello walkie-talkie PTT smartphone app on channel: Metrolina Spotters (Metrolina Spotters Zello Channel).
