Spring Forward: Sunday, March 12th

Spring ForwardGreat Scott! It’s time to fire up the Flux Capacitor because we’re going back to the future – by one hour anyway! Daylight Savings Time begins this weekend here in Southwest Missouri and throughout most of the United States. This Sunday, March 12, 2017, at 2:00 a.m. local time, we spring forward to Central Daylight Time as we turn our clocks ahead one hour. Safety officials also suggest that this is a great time to test and/or replace the batteries in your smoke detectors and carbon monoxide detectors.

None of the nets on the Southwest Missouri Regional Skywarn linked repeaters, including the 147.105 MHz. Branson Repeater, move after these time changes. All of these nets adhere to local time. If you monitor these nets via the Broadcastify Feed or if you participate via EchoLink Node N0NWS-R from parts of the United States and its territories that do not observe Daylight Savings Time including most of Arizona, all of Hawaii, American Samoa, Guam, Puerto Rico, and the Virgin Islands or in other parts of the world that do not observe Daylight Savings Time, then these nets will appear to start an hour earlier to you.

Daylight Savings Time ends on Sunday, November 5, 2017 at 2:00 a.m. local time.
