The Coconino County SKYWARN is managed by Scott Martin, KY7A.  Coconino County ARES/SKYWARN meets each Wednesday night at 1900 MST (Arizona) for practice and information pertinent to SKYWARN operations. Coconino County SKYWARN uses the 146.980 repeater, which requires a negative offset and a PL tone of 162.2.  This repeater is located atop Mount Elden and is maintained by the 
Arizona Repeater Association. In the event of repeater failure the SKYWARN Net will be conducted on 146.980 simplex, with close-in stations relaying for outlying stations.  All licensed amateur radio operators residing in or visiting Northern Arizona are invited and encouraged to participate in the weekly SKYWARN Net.
