How to become a Member
We do not require that you be a member to check into one of the Blue Ridge Weather Watch nets or to report in during a severe weather activation. We encourage anyone with a valid Amateur Radio license to check in to our 2 meter or 440 nets.
We do require our members to be NWS Skywarn Spotters and to have taken at least, the Basic Skywarn Class that is taught by the National Weather Service and to attend any NWS Skywarn taught class at least once every 3 years. We also also would like for our members to check into as many nets as they can.
If you would like to join The Blue Ridge Weather Watch Organization and have not had the Basic Skywarn Training. Go to the bottom of the Navigator on the left to the On Line Skywarn and click on that. Take the Class and upon Satisfactory completion you will be issued a Certification of Completion. A Basic and other Skywarn Certificates must accompany the Application.
