Emergency nets can be activated at any time when the need arises. SKYWARN nets are automatically activated when a severe thunderstorm warning or tornado warning is issued for Tippecanoe County by the National Weather Service. Net operation procedures are available on the Plans web page.
Weekly training and information nets are conducted each Monday evening, starting at 8:00 PM local time. On the 1st Saturday of each month, a net is held to facilitate the coordination and collection of status reports of the warning sirens in Tippecanoe County. All amateurs in the area are invited to participate. Participants are encouraged to check into the nets using the format requested by the Net Control Station.
