We are very busy behind the scene but wanted to get some resources posted for hurricane Matthew:
The following nets have been active in tracking the hurricane and are a
great resource for information, and for calling out for help if for some
reason you cannot reach anyone on the AmRRON Nets.
Hurricane Net 14.325 USB
Maritime Net 14.300 USB
THE FOLLOWING BULLETIN WAS PUT OUT BY THE NATIONAL SATERN LIAISON TODAY. BE
PREPARED TO QSY TO AVOID INTERFERING WITH ONGOING EMERGENCY TRAFFIC:
*Note the frequencies in use for Hurricane Matthew are some used by AmRRON
and OK for digital ops, so we should probably keep those clear for the
duration of relief operations.
