Basic Information

 Recognition Day 2017 is set for Dec. 2nd  2017,. The event starts
at 00Z on Dec 2 (6 PM CST Dec.1st)  and runs 24 hours.  Skywarn
Recognition Day was developed by the National Weather Service (NWS) and
the ARRL in 1999.  This is the 19th year that this event has been held.

The Valley NWS office and local HAMS have participated in every one of
these events.  This event celebrates the contributions that volunteer
Skywarn Amateur Radio operators make to the National Weather Service.

During this event, local amateur radio volunteer spotters and net
control personnel operate several radio stations at the NWS office.

They make contact with other NWS offices, and thousands of other
amateur radio operators around the U.S. and world. Details of this
event can be found at

We would like a good turnout for this event. We need some good radio operators to make contacts. So if you can come out and make some contacts, that would be great!

We have an HF radio here as well as 2 meter and 440 MHz, APRS radios.
If you want, you can bring your own HF unit out here.  If you have an
antenna, that would be great too as we can set you up in our conference

The address is 6707 N. 288th Street, Valley NE.  Just take highway 275
to the Highway 64  Valley Exit (The one that goes to Leshara).  Head
west until you get to the building next to the radar (Looks like a big
volleyball on a  tower).

Thanks much and 73 ,

These are Amateur Radio Operators who are ill and need our support. Please send get well cards or QSL cards with your best wishes on them as they recover from their illnesses or surgeries. I will post along with their names what they are recovering from only with the permission of the families or the member themselves.
