Skywarn Spotter Classes

Good afternoon everyone,
I was contacted today by the National Weather Service in Tallahassee regarding our interest level in spotter classes that are being planned during the last two weeks of this month.
  I have received limited feedback from those with interest in participating in a basic class this spring. It would be very helpful for planning purposes to know if there are others in the Southwest Georgia area that would like to participate so please let us know.
 This is particularly true if some of you would like to have a group participate and need to request a specific date for a class to be held. The National Weather Service is willing to at least consider setting a date for a class that would work for the majority of those interested so please let me know your thoughts as soon as possible.
    Again, the plan right now is to conduct on-line classes on dates yet to be determined in the weeks of February 13-17 and  20-24. The number of classes to be held will be dependent on the amount of interest received and we need to provide suggestions on dates for the classes if large groups have a need or preference.
We are always willing to host a class in Thomasville so if that works best for you or your group I know John, KE4RWR, will be happy to arrange a classroom setting just let us know.

  1. Hello,

    I’m a skywarn spotter, I usually go through training every year. I moved from ohio to Georgia to pastor a Church in the Meigs Georgia. I would like to continue as a spotter here. I have been on the e Spotter site trying to look for a class scedule. where or how can I get into a class so that I may continue spotting. I’m not a ham radio operator, I would relay my reports through the phone or via internet can you help he?

    Thank you for your time

  2. Continuing to build a list of individuals like Mr Wilson that are interested in spotter training. If we can get enough we can request an online course to be scheduled. We have a total of about 6 people as of the first week in March that have contact us. It would be good to have at least 12 or 15 before we make our request for a class.
