Hurricane Watch Net
With hurricane season upon us, some of the most exciting traffic on amateur radio will be taking place on the Hurricane Watch Net operating on 14.325 MHz.
The net was activated last week with the arrival of Hurricane Bill.
The HWN — operating on 14.325 MHz — relays real-time weather observations to WX4NHC <http://www.wx4nhc.org/> at the National Hurricane Center (NHC) <http://www.nhc.noaa.gov/>. "We want all of our reporting stations, especially those closer to the US, to keep in mind that we’re also prepared to operate the HWN on 7.168 MHz or 3.668 MHz."
Tune into the net, you never know what you might hear!
