Hurricane Watch Net on 7268/14325 kHz - Please Keep Clear

The Hurricane Watch Net is active around the clock on 7268 and/or 14325 kHz as Hurricane Michael approaches the US Gulf Coast. Landfall is expected later today (10/10). Please keep these frequencies clear for net operations and do not transmit to the net unless you need assistance or have information to provide from affected areas.

 The Hurricane Watch Net is looking specifically for the following information: observed ground-truth data from those in the affected area (wind speed, wind gusts, wind direction, barometric pressure;  if available, rainfall, damage, and storm surge). Measured weather data is always appreciated but we do accept estimated. For updates and more information, visit <>.

Please note:
As the storm makes landfall and moves inland, additional HF and VHF emergency nets are likely to become active throughout the affected areas. No matter where you are operating, please listen before transmitting and ask if a frequency is in use. This is to avoid unknowingly interfering with stations operating on a net that you might not be able to hear.
