Welcome to the LSSN site. - Investigate, Learn, and Enjoy.

 

Welcome to the home of the Lone Star Storm Spotters Network. This group was formed in 2002 by Warren Rowe in an effort to create an organized statewide Skywarn network. On July 5th, 2004, the group converted from what was originally the Central Texas Storm Spotters, to Lone Star Storm Spotters. A few members departed, taking with them the CTSS name, and continued with their own group. Warren stepped down a short time later due to time constraints, and management was picked up by Jeff Draper, founder of Texas Severe Storms Intercept, with alot of behind the scenes assistance from Tim Stevens.

 

The group has since gone through numerous changes, requirements, and upgrades. It is co-managed by Jeff Draper N5SSI and Tim Stevens K5TBS. We currently have approximately 40 members across 14 counties. ALL members are ham radio operators, required to attend advanced Skywarn classes every year, have passed an internal knowledge test, are required to maintain a certain minimum of "NIMS IS" certifications, and maintain an ongoing roster of items needed for this public service. We are a volunteer group, unfunded by anyone. We operate in coordination with local Ameteur Radio Emergency Services (ARES) groups, and generally coordinate on the NA6M 147.080 repeater in Georgetown Texas, oftened linked with WB6ARE repeaters in Bastrop, Texas on 442.725 and 443.000 MHz. The repeaters are provided through the generous efforts of Mark Stennett NA6M and Bruce Forestal WB6ARE.

 

We hope you will look around the site, as it is full of many training elements and lots of useful information. If you have any questions, or wish to inquire about joining us, please see our Google group site HERE and then click on "contact the owner"

 

Thank you for your interest in us, and weather in general. Texas has the most active weather in the nation, if not the world. We hope you can acquire some knowledge from this site that may help keep you and yours safe in a severe weather event. Stay Safe.
