  • Amateur stations to exchange QSO information with as many National Weather Service Stations as possible on 80, 40, 20, 15, 10, 6, and 2 meter bands plus the 70 centimeter band. Contacts via repeaters are permitted.
  • Non-Amateur Radio Spotters to exchange weather information as often as possible via Social Media with NWS Offices.
