Amateur Storm Chasers Cause Headaches for Emergency Spotters - News Man - 12-04-2017

On several occasions Sunday, the control operator for Wichita County Amateur Radio Emergency Service (ARES), the volunteer storm spotter group, had to shoo amateur storm chasers from their closed radio frequency. But the main problem is traffic congestion as amateur chasers converge on roads where severe weather is developing.
