Scipio Link Radio Kenwood TMV 700A Capable of linking the 442.975 to several area repeaters as well as Central Indiana Skywarn Network
Our Repeaters are available for all to use and enjoy ! However during Central Indiana Skywarn Events, The 442.975 will be dedicated to National Weather Service Net Control Operations located at the NWS in Indianapolis.
You are able to monitor severe weather reports from the entire Central Indiana Skywarn System in real time on 442.975 mhz with a pl of 103.5.
During severe weather, this frequency is ONLY for Central Indiana Service Area County Nets to report back to the Central Indiana Skywarn net control.
Please do not make INDIVIDUAL reports to the National Weather Service on 442.975. The Central Indiana Skywarn Team stays very busy during weather events, and taking non life threatening individual reports consumes their resources needlessly.
Those INDIVIDUAL reports should go through your local County Skywarn Net or 145.250.
If you are not sure if your county is served by Central Indiana Skywarn, please refer to their service area map Central Indiana Skywarn Service Area
course, in the event of a life-threatening situation, which requires the
immediate attention of the National Weather Service, the 442.975 is your
direct link to them.
Jennings County Skywarn Net will be operated on the 145.250 no PL repeater,
and will be available to pass traffic to the State Net when requested.
Thanks to the generosity of Christopher KC9TKJ, Lou, N7BBW and Bill, KC9TQN from Clark County,These fine gentlemen exhibit the TRUE spirit of Amateur Radio!
