Tentative 10/1 Hurricane Watch Net Activation for Matthew

The following is from Hurricane Watch Net Manager Bobby Graves, KB5HAV:

The Hurricane Watch Net has tentative plans to activate for Hurricane Matthew on Saturday, October 1, 2016 @ 5:00 PM EDT – 2100 UTC on our primary net frequency of 14.325 MHz. Once activated, the net will remain in continuous operation until further notice. We plan to operate 14.325 MHz by day and 7.268 MHz by night. If propagation dictates, we will operate both frequencies at the same time. Should there be any change to this plan, we will announce on our website (, numerous HF nets, as well as the amateur radio media.

Please listen closely before transmitting on or adjacent to these frequencies. If the net is active, please QSY unless you have traffic for the net.
