Weather Radio Event
SPX in Owatonna offered employees an opportunity to purchase NOAA WX radios at a discount. Steele County SKYWARN was asked to help with programming the radios. A total of 196 radios were ordered through the SPX program.
SKYWARN members and SPX employees got together on 10-Aug to complete the task. The SPX crew had all of the on tables, out of the packaging and batteries installed. SKYWARN staffed several tables and programmed all 196 radios in less than 90 minutes. The radios were scheduled to be distributed to the SPX employees on 12-Aug. It was good timing the NWS issued several severe storm warnings that night for southern MN.
SKYWARN members included Bill KDØDJX, Bob R., Carl KDØGVQ, Chris NØCPG, Dave KCØUVY, Deuel NSØL, Marv NØFJP, Mike KDØDKC,Tim KDØDKA, and Tom NØUW. We appreciated working with Sharon Jacobson, Marcia Halverson, and a number of SPX employees making this a successful event.
