I recommend the following setup for Skywarn spotters near downtown Minneapolis using an HT.

162.550 NWS (program this into your WX channel and enable WX alert function)
146.520 Calling frequency (program this into the 'CALL' frequency memory)
146.700 Minneapolis 127.3 CTCSS 127.3
147.000 Wright County 000.0 (to hear what’s inbound from the west)

1. Use a power level of at least 2 watts. 5 watts is better. Don't forget to use your external speaker mic.
2. Backup repeaters will be announced by Duty NCS based on storm track and availability of repeaters.
