Re Jamaica and Emcomms.

I advise that 6Y5WW_William (+1-876-303-6523) of the Jamaica Amateur Radio Association, (JARA) in his capacity as a member of the Technical Committee, has confirmed the following:

1) Hurricane Watch Net 14.325 / 7.268 MHz is already operational. They have their own specific protocols and procedures, and require no additional assistance.

2) JARA has agreed the use of the CEWN 3.815 / 7.162 MHz frequencies to handle emergency traffic. The net will convene at 2230 UTC, this evening and then go into extended mode.

3) The Jamaica National frequency of 7.150 will be used for non-emergency traffic on island.

Please share as necessary.

CEWN is always looking for net control stations. please use the contact form under the Net Control menu item to apply. In times of emergency this is a very important position. It might just be the only way to communicate right after a disaster.
