Hello Fellow Ham Radio Operators,
In cooperation with the National Hurricane Center in Miami, Florida, and WX4NHC, we are asking for your assistance during the Hurricane Season.
The most important role amateur radio plays in hurricanes is to gather and relay information to the National Hurricane Centerís Amateur Radio Station WX4NHC.
While there are mechanisms to do this, we are always looking for more assistance in this vital job. You could be the only station in the impacted area and your Eye Witness Reports or measured data, if you have a weather station, could be critical to the forecasters. You could be the only station hearing some other ham calling with a report or needing assistance in a dangerous situation they are in. Also, you could play the important role in translating a Ham's report into a language that we understand.
So as you can see, everyone has a part they can play.
WX4NHC on 14.325 MHz is a frequency that you should always monitor during a hurricane. More information can be found at www.wx4nhc.org
This frequency is maintained for hurricanes by the Hurricane Watch Net www.hwn.org
The VoIP Hurricane Net utilizes Echolink and IRLP to link stations together over the internet. When HF propagation is not good, sometimes this is the only way information reaches WX4NHC.
EchoLink Conference Room is WX-Talk (Node 7203) and IRLP Node is 9219.
More information can be found at www.voipwx.net
We ask you for your support and assistance anytime the Hurricane Watch Net, VoIP Hurricane Net, and WX4NHC are active.
The part you may play may save someone's life!
With our 147.390 tower coming down, we are working very hard to find a backup site until a new tower gets up.
There are several sites that we are looking at for a replacement tower. We will keep everyone advised as to the progress.
Also, we will have more detailed announcements and information at the NETMeetings.
