Hurricane Watch Net Activates on 14325 kHz

The National Hurricane Center has requested activation of the amateur Hurricane Watch Net on 14325 kHz. This net is used for dissemination of official advisories and collection of live weather observations from affected areas. Various stations act as net control in the marathon sessions.

HWN is active for Hurricane Earl, which is nearing Puerto Rico and the US Virgin Islands.
