The National Hurricane Center in Miami, as of 2:00 PM EDT (1800 UTC), is forecasting Elsa to become a
hurricane later this afternoon or early evening. Given the very close proximity to land, any slight jog
to the right and Elsa would make landfall much earlier than forecast.
Hurricane Watch Net Announces Net Activation:
The Hurricane Watch Net will activate at 6:00 PM EDT (2200 UTC), this Tuesday evening on 14.325.00 MHz
and remain active there for as long as we have propagation. We will activate on 7.268.00 MHz at
7:00 PM EDT (2300 UTC) and operate overnight or for as long as propagation allows. We will then resume
in the morning on 7.268 when the band reopens and work with the Waterway Net until their net is over.
We will then remain active on both 20 and 40 meters until no longer needed.
If you are not a Hurricane Watch Net radio operator, keep the frequency clear and monitor only (unless
you have emergency traffic).
AmRRON operators who are capable are encouraged to dual monitor, both the Hurricane Watch Net (Voice)
frequencies, and the AmRRON Persistent Presence Net (Digital) frequencies.
