As we have many members that are Skywarn Weather Spotters, I am pleased that Gila Amateur Radio Society, Inc. has been accepted by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) as an Ambassador for their Weather-Ready Nation Initiative. Amateur Radio is a major component of Emergency Operations when a disaster strikes. It's what Hams do...!
