Weather Radio Listeners Newsletter Issue 13

Hi there and welcome to another Weather Wednesday. Today is all about Weather Radio Listeners Newsletter Issue 13. It will be in 2 parts: 1 is the weather post and the other will come on Sunday. You will know why when I release it.

This issue is actually more of the same, when it comes to the newsletter over the past 3 years. I have made a point of including a portion on manufacturers of Weather Radios and on both CANWARN and SKYWARN. Unfortunately, not a lot of new information has come my way, when it comes to SKYWARN but I get regular emails from Warning Preparedness Meteorologist Geoff Coulson from Environment Canada in Toronto, about CANWARN in Ontario.

I have also continued filing reports to Weatheradio Canada on the weekly and monthly alert tests and for some reason, I seem to be the only one doing it on a consistant basis.

Finally, for the weather portion, I have also inserted reports of when Weatheradio Canada has had its problems and there are no shortage of them. In fact for the next issue I will be discussing a watchdog event which happened this past weekend.

In case you are wondering what it sounds like when Weatheradio Canada goes into watchdog mode, here is a video from Youtube I found. The sound is distorted somewhat but you can understand what the voice is saying in both english and french.

Also, for more weather stuff you can subscribe to my Weather Radio Listeners Newsletter mailing list by emailing me at wxrnewsletter@gmail.com and I will send you all the issues so far. You will also receive the next issue when it comes out.
Another blog you may want to follow alongside this one is from Phil Chadwick. He is a retired meteorologist from Environment Canada and his specialty was severe weather. Here is the url.

Check it out if you are a weather nut. He has stuff in there that I didn’t even know. Well, after all, he did work for Environment Canada for many years and he retired in 2011.
Well, that’s it for today’s blog post. Talk to you on Sunday.
