The Atlantic Hurricane Season runs from 1st June to 30th November this year. So it is time to remind the wider Amateur Radio community that the following frequencies may be in use by nets in North and Central America to track and deal with the consequences of these severe weather events. Radio Amateurs in Region 2 play their part in gathering and distributing information for the weather and emergency services as they do every year.
Radio Amateurs in Region 1 are reminded it is possible to cause unintentional QRM to these nets so please listen carefully if operating near these frequencies:
USA: Maritime Mobile Service Net: 14.300 MHz Salvation Army Team Emergency Radio Network (SATERN): 14.265 MHz Hurricane Watch Net: 14.325 MHz (day) 7.268MHz (Night) National Hurricane Centre ( WX4NHC ) 14.325MHz
Other local emergency communications groups may also activate if a hurricane approaches their area and those frequencies would be announced at the time.
Thanks to the National Societies and Emergency Communications Groups of IARU Region 2 for updating their frequency information.
