COVID – 19 Mitigation Notice
Due to concerns with COVID-19, we have canceled our March meeting and Skywarn training in April has been canceled. Members should check this website, our Facebook Page, and your emails (from the list-serv) for updates as we operate through this public health crisis.
**2020 Skywarn Training Canceled**
The Grand Rapids National Weather Service (GRR NWS) has decided to cancel all remaining Skywarn trainings, including our training that was scheduled for April 11th. They ask for your understanding as the GRR NWS as they work to reduce the risk to the public and their staff during the COVID-19 outbreak.
There is online training that can be accessed at the following website: https://www.meted.ucar.edu/training_course.php?id=23
You can take this course in the place of the in person Skywarn training that has been canceled. This course will cover the same topics and will provide a certificate that you can put your name (and callsign) in for you to save and print.
We recommend anyone who needs to take Skywarn training to take this course. People who need to take this course include new Skywarn participants and those whose Skywarn certification is expiring / expired. Once you have taken this training enter your name (and callsign if you have one), and save a copy for yourself and print the certificate off for your records.

March 2019 Meeting
The March Amateur Radio Public Service Corps meeting is this coming Monday, March 18, at 7pm. Our main topic will be the finalizing of planning for the upcoming Skywarn Training in April. We have been able to nail down a date (April 13) and location (Foster Community Center), and we will be discussing options for registration because we will be limited to 100 people for the training because of the size of the room.
Tim Crane, Michigan’s District 1 Emergency Coordinator – who was previously scheduled to present at this meeting about ARES Connect – will be unable to attend. He is currently assisting with incident command operations in Shiawassee County after the recent tornadoes
Our meetings are held at 7pm. Visit our Meetings page if you need help finding where we’re at
We hope to see you there!
