The April 14, 2012 Tornado outbreak put the K-Link System to the stress test. Thanks to John, KR0L, Harvey, W0HGJ, for taking reports, Justin, NV8Q for splitting the link system into 2 separate networks as both sides of I-70 were tested. Many SKYWARN® ham radio operators, SKYWARN® home spotters, wall-to-wall TV coverage, independent spotters, TV and radio storm spotters saved many lives with a total of 24 supercell tornadoes reported in OK, KS, NE, & IA.
