Welcome to the Home of the Desert RATS

This month we will be having a presentation about Skywarn

Ed Sherman, K6UYL, has been a general class amateur radio operator since 2000, a member of Skywarn since 2005, and the Riverside County Skywarn Coordinator since 2013.

 He will be  presenting about the background and history of Skywarn. Provide an explanation of the NWS Spotter and Skywarn programs and how to join. We will discuss the Riverside County Skywarn nets and activations, and demonstrate how to find Skywarn information online.

Members of the Desert RATS club try our best to live by this code at all times.

The Radio Amateur Is:

* CONSIDERATE…never knowingly operates in such a way as to lessen the pleasure of others.

* LOYAL…offers loyalty, encouragement and support to other amateurs, local clubs, and the American Radio Relay League, through which Amateur Radio in the United States is represented nationally and internationally.

* PROGRESSIVE…with knowledge abreast of science, a well-built and efficient station and knowledge above reproach.

* FRIENDLY…slow and patient operating when requested; friendly
advise and counsel to the beginner; kindly assistance, cooperation and consideration for the interests of others. These are the hallmarks of the amateur spirit.

* BALANCED…radio is an avocation, never interfering with duties owed to family, job, school or community.

* PATRIOTIC…station and skill always ready for service to country
and community.
