Weather Information

What do amateur radio operators talk about more than weather?  We can't change the weather, but we can observe and report it.  Here are some resources for you.

CANWARN - The Canadian Weather Amateur Radio Network

During severe weather events, designated net controllers will activate the CANWARN Net on all or part of the IRG Network, as directed by Environment Canada. Reports are passed along to the Atlantic Storm Prediction Centre of Environment Canada.  The CANWARN Net is a service net: follow instructions of the Net Controllers during a CANWARN net. The type and severity of the weather event will mandate how the net operates during the activation.  Visit CANWARN New Brunswick for more information.
