SEMARA member Robert D. Macedo, KD1CY has been recognized for his work. On November 9, 2018 during a Blue Hills Observatory fundraising event, the Blue Hill Observatory and Science Center awarded Macedo its Outstanding Service Award.
Doing the honors were meteorologist and Weather Channel personality Jim Cantore and former Weather Channel meteorologist Mish Michaels.
The honor was especially meaningful for Macedo as it coincided with his birthday.
“It’s both rewarding and humbling to receive [the award] in the presence of some of the most respected people in the meteorology profession,” Macedo said. “It wouldn’t be possible without the support of hundreds to thousands of SKYWARN spotters and Amateur Radio operators.”
