The NWS will be using the SKYWARN area inside for one of their tour stops, likely display of weather instruments. We could probably have a few signs or something in the station and have them mention that we have a table outside.
  • Station cleanup/signs?  (Note, the NWS will likely have one of their displays in the station.)
    • SKYWARN logo sign that matches one we have at the outside display.
    • "Blacksburg SKYWARN amateur radio station.  See our display outside."
