We report on the continuation of our field campaign to measure properties of ZDR columns in potentially tornadic supercells using a mobile, X-band, polarimetric, phased array radar (UMass LPR). Findings and lessons learned from our first field program in 2018 will be briefly summarized, followed by descriptions of our 2019 field activities and preliminary results. Integration of this field program into educational activities at both Purdue University and the University of Massachusetts Amherst will also be briefly reviewed.
