|Skywarn is very fun and cool. I take the 4 hour class once a year, read a lot of weather books and go out when I have spare time to chase. Amatuer Radio is a really key tool to have I am 44 miles from the repeater that gets me to Duluth Minnesota which is 80 miles away. XM weather will be helpful with the Nexrad. Right now I am paying about 20 dollars per day on a chase for mobile internet, so this will save me big bucks. I have been a spotter for 4 years now and have spotted 5 tornadoes up in Northern Minnesota that which when I saw the supercell I watched for the wall cloud and then the funnel, at the time to the wall cloud and the beginning of the funnel I called it in, within
seconds the Warning was out.
