Wayne County Skywarn (Detroit, MI) Audio Files
Here are all of my recorded Wayne County Skywarn Nets. The quality on all of these varies from net to net. ALL of these nets were recorded
using an old tape recorder that I had. In 1992, the nets were recorded using my very first "scanner". It was a Radio Shack Patrolman analog radio.
In 1993, I got my first digital scanner, which was a Uniden Bearcat 200XLT. I used this uniden scanner for all of the nets from 1993 to 1997.
