Obtaining FREE Severe Weather Bulletins Local area spotters have a free service available to them run by Alachua
County SKYWARN which allows them to receive severe weather-related bulletins
to their cellphone, pager, or email account! This is not run by a commercial
entity. It is privately operated by Alachua County SKWYARN.
Mobile Scanner &
RADAR-Detector Laws In The United States Spotters, hams, and public servants alike make use of scanners so that they
know what is going on around them. This site lists the laws regarding their
usage. To use a scanner in Florida requires that you have either a ham
license, a permit, or that you be a member of the Press on assignment, or a
licensed alarm system contractor in order to use one while MOBILE. (Using
one from the home breaks no laws.) The laws vary from state to state, too.
Know the law before you go.
