During threat of severe weather, monitor the WØJV repeater (146.85 MHz) for Johnson County Skywarn® Net activation!
Although the Iowa City Amateur Radio Club does not officially sponsor the Johnson County Skywarn® Net, this information is provided here as a public service to those who wish to participate.
The Skywarn® Net is an ad hoc net which may be activated by request of the Johnson County Emergency Management
Agency, the National Weather Service or any local amateur radio operator when weather conditions warrant. The net meets
on the WØJV repeater on 146.85 MHz. Trained weather spotters from various areas of the county observe weather
conditions and report their observations to net control. Please see the Skywarn® Net
Operations page for more information.

Please read this page of weather safety information (provided by the National Weather Service) before you become active in Weather Spotting, and review it every month or two during the severe weather season!
The Quad Cities NWS Forecast Office says this:
"If you are experiencing severe weather right now, report it immediately to your local
Police Department, Sheriff's Department, or State Police and ask them to relay the information to
the National Weather Service in Davenport (Quad Cities) with the same urgency."
