Here is a very good article about working with ATC around thunderstorms. It’s written by an air traffic controller. The controller says this article is for laymen but I learned new details about ATC’s NEXRAD radar from this article. Enjoy!
There is a misconception among new pilots that listening to other pilots speak on the radio is a good way to learn radio phrasing. My opinion is, maybe, but probably not. Listen to the audio in this 1:10 video. These are all presumably experienced pilots communicating with Peachtree Tower at Dekalb-Peachtree Airport (KPDK). Ear-opening, yes?
