(ATTENTION: Monday, September 4, 2017 @ 6:00 PM EDT (2200 UTC)

The Hurricane Watch Net will activate for Hurricane Irma tomorrow, Tuesday, September 5 @ 2:00 PM EDT – 1800 UTC on our primary net frequency of 14.325 MHz. Once activated, we will remain in continuous operation until further notice. Daytime operations on 14.325 MHz will begin at 7:00 AM EDT – 1100 UTC each day continuing for as long as propagation allows. Operations on 7.268 MHz will begin starting 6:00 PM EDT – 2200 UTC and continue overnight. If propagation dictates, we will operate both frequencies at the same time.

Note: Operations on 7.268 MHz will pause at 7:30 AM ET, and, if required, resume at approximately 8:30 AM ET. This will allow the Waterway Net to conducts their daily net. Should an emergency arise, there will be someone trained to handle the situation.
