We run a directed severe weather net any time a severe thunderstorm warning or tornado warning is issued that covers any portion of Geauga County.

During a severe weather net, the repeater is closed to non-weather-related traffic.

If any QSOs or nets are ongoing, politely interrupt them – Skywarn has priority on 146.94 and 444.8125.

Net Procedure

Before starting a net, have any watch or warning product text available to you to read on the air.  One source for this information is https://weather.gov/cle
