Hello Everyone,


Its been a long winter with many SKYWARN Activations for a variety of snow storms.
We are pleased with how many of our spotters joined us over the winter for our
Amateur Radio SKYWARN Nets to make observations and reports for the National
Weather Service. March and April for the most part have been fairly quiet for us as we
have taken a much needed break. Now that spring has finally arrived we are working on
getting back into the swing of things with our training. First up on the list will be a basic SKYWARN Class.


Camden County Office of Emergency Management Amateur Radio Emergency Services in conjunction with the Mount Holly National Weather Service forecast office are pleased to announce the following training:
