About Western Oklahoma SKYWARN®

Amateur Radio is almost synonymous with the SKYWARN® program, the "eyes and ears" of the National Weather Service (NWS) during severe weather emergencies. Hams comprise the majority of SKYWARN® volunteers, who report "ground truths" to local NWS offices, supplementing their sophisticated weather monitoring equipment.

Western Oklahoma SKYWARN® provides and supports storm spotters and communications in western Oklahoma. Members include trained SKYWARN® storm spotters and emergency management, providing severe weather "ground truth" observations directly to the National Weather Service in Norman Oklahoma via linked radio repeater systems in western Oklahoma.

Meetings and NETs: Our weekly radio net is on Thursday evenings at 8PM.

Groups.io: Members and participants in the Western Oklahoma SKYWARN group may request to join the group on WOS.groups.io. We have a member email list on Groups.io for email discussions, sharing information, and spotter activation planning. Members may also request to be added to our text message notifications for spotter activation and other group notifications.

If you have questions, send us an email using the Contact page on this web site.
