2015 Metro Skywarn frequencies (Minneapolis downtown area)

I recommend the following setup for Skywarn spotters near downtown Minneapolis. Use a power level of at least 2 watts, 5 watts is better, use your external speaker mic if you have one. Backup repeaters will be announced by the Duty NCS based on storm track and availability of repeaters.

Reportable conditions: transmit spotter ID number and a one or two word descriptor of the condition. Emergencies: transmit "Break Break Break".
