The Piedmont Spotter Group was formed in 2012 with the idea to integrate Ham Radio and Social Media in severe weather spotting. The idea is that most Storm Spotters these days are on social media sites, more than on Ham Radio, and there are a lot of Ham Radio operators that are on Social Media. Marry the two and you have a great network of storm spotters within your community. We did just that when we created Piedmont Spotter Group. We have a nightly net that meets at 8PM local on the W4BFB repeater, 145.230 (-) tone 118.8
During severe weather events, the Piedmont Spotter Group supports Charlotte Regional Skywarn. We provide them with valuable weather reports, and they in turn send them to the National Weather Service.
The Piedmont Spotter Group isn’t a Club, we’re a group, and anyone can join in and be a part of it. To be a part of the group, just participate in our nightly nets and during severe weather. When severe weather is occurring where you are report it to Skywarn VIA Amateur Radio or Twitter.
