Introduction

Purpose of this Manual
This manual is designed to be used as a reference guide for Greenville Spartanburg Regional SKYWARN Am¬ateur Radio Support Team operations in the area that comprises the County Warning Area (CWA) of the National Weather Service (NWS) Weather Forecast Office (WFO) in Greer SC. Greenville Spartanburg Regional SKYWARN Amateur Radio Support Team has a large area of responsibility which includes numerous counties and cities in portions of three states. Some variation in local operating practices and tastes is expected and allowed, and this document serves only as a baseline reference to establish and ensure continuity of operations. Policies and procedures may vary slightly from one Operating Area to another and from time to time. These variances may not be immediately reflected in this Manual.
Purpose of SKYWARN
SKYWARN is the NWS national network of trained volunteer severe storm Spotters. SKYWARN volunteers support their local community and government by providing the NWS with timely and accurate severe weather reports. These reports, when integrated with modern NWS technology, are used to issue timely and accurate warn¬ings of impending dangerous weather conditions. In addition, working with emergency management officials, SKYWARN Spotters can help provide their communities with advance warning of impending hazardous weather and provide the real-time ground truth required to appropriately respond to these threats.
Role of Amateur Radio in SKYWARN
Amateur radio has been, and probably always will be, a vital link in the NWS warning system. Fortunately, in the Greenville-Spartanburg CWA there are thousands of trained SKYWARN Spotters, a large percentage of which are amateur radio operators. Amateur radio operators possess many characteristics that make them ideal members of the SKYWAR Team. It is the desire of the National Weather Service to utilize to the fullest possible extent all the capabilities and technologies that amateur radio has to offer.
The SKYWARN Radio Desk and all equipment is either donated by public service-minded amateurs or has been purchased by the National Weather Service. All equipment is maintained by amateur radio operators volunteering their time and expertise.
The close working relationship between the NWS and the amateur radio community provides many special benefits to each group. These benefits are highlighted in the following goals for the Greenville-Spartanburg SKYWARN Amateur Radio Support Team:
1. To provide the NWS with timely and accurate severe weather reports via amateur radio. This includes both incoming reports of severe weather per the NWS criteria and amateur radio operators making observations at specific locations in response to NWS requests.
2. To create and maintain an organized communication network for passing critical severe weather traffic in a timely fashion to and from the NWS in the event that normal communications are disrupted. The NWS has lost normal communications in the past and it is likely the SKYWARN Radio Desk would be activated in future communication emergencies.
3. To disseminate warnings, statements, and other products issued by the NWS to the amateur radio community. Every attempt is made to disseminate all state¬ments and warnings issued by NWS over the SKYWARN Net to keep amateurs informed of developing situations and to practice for situations when normal communication channels fail.
4. To organize and train amateur radio operators to prepare themselves and their families for disaster or emergency weather related situations so that they make be available to assist in emergency net operations. This preparedness training is critical if the SKYWARN system is to operate reliably during true emergency situations.
5. To maintain a Spotter network that is transparent to jurisdictional and political boundaries and operates uniformly across the entire CWA. The Team is not directly affiliated with any club, group, or organization.
SKYWARN and Storm Chasers
Local perspectives on storm chasing continue to evolve with time. As the National Weather Service finds increasing value in the contributions of qualified storm chasers outside of “Tornado Alley” the SKYWARN amateur radio network must evolve to support those chasers.
Storm chasing remains a secondary focus at best, and we continue to maintain a position in line with the Greenville-Spartanburg Forecast Office. That is, we do not recommend, endorse, or encourage storm chasing. However, we will communicate with, and provide reporting channels for, qualified storm chasers who wish to participate in our nets.

SKYWARN and Storm Chasers
For purposes of this program, the term “storm chasing” shall be applied to the inten¬tional pursuit of severe weather, regardless of whether such activities are for purposes of severe weather reporting, photography, videography, research, or thrill.
The National Weather Service and the NWS Greenville-Spartanburg SKYWARN Amateur Radio Support Team consider the safety of all SKYWARN volunteers to be of paramount importance.
SKYWARN Spotters and other persons who choose to engage in storm chasing do so at their own risk and completely independent of their involvement in the SKYWARN program. The National Weather Service and the SKYWARN program accept no responsibility for the decisions of SKYWARN program participants with regard to storm chasing and can assume no liability for damages arising from the use of SKYWARN reports in storm chasing or any other activities.
