Welcome to the official Southwest Missouri Regional Skywarn website. The NØNWS Repeater is the official Skywarn Repeater System for Southwest Missouri. During severe weather outbreaks, we ask that all stations yield to net control and try to keep transmission lengths to a minimum.
If you witness severe weather and would like to report it on the air, please give your call sign and ask for net control.
Progress Continues on Buffalo Repeater
Getting the Buffalo Repeater moved to its new home on the KRBK television tower in Polk, Missouri continues to be a very long yet steady process, but we’re getting close! As you may remember from previous updates, the biggest delay in this project has been the need for us to construct our own “repeater shack” because we are unable to mount our equipment inside of the existing building at the tower site.
Construction of the shack is almost complete (pictured left). Electrical wiring has been installed (pictured below). Once the finishing touches including paint and roofing material are in place, it will be time to move the structure to the tower site. As you can see in the photo to the left, the shack is already sitting on the utility trailer that will be used to transport it.
We thank everyone for their patience and understanding throughout this process. For those of you who donated toward this project, the fruits of your giving will be recognized soon.
More updates on the progress of this repeater are forthcoming. Stay tuned.
