    Hurricane Watch Net to Activate for Grace

    Posted: 18 Aug 2021 09:22 AM PDT http://cqnewsroom.blogspot.com/2021/08/hurricane-watch-net-to-activate-for.html

    The following is from Hurricane Watch Net Manager Bobby Graves, KB5HAV:
    HWN will activate today at 5:00 PM EDT (2100 UTC) on 14.325.00 MHz and
    continue on this frequency until we lose propagation. We will startup on 7.268.00 MHz at 8:00 PM EDT (0000 UTC) and remain active until we lose propagation. Looking ahead to the final landfall, unless something
    drastically changes, we will plan to activate Friday afternoon using the
    same start times. As with any Net Activation, we welcome your observed ground-truth data from those in the affected area. The information
    forecasters at the National Hurricane Center need includes Wind Speed, Wind Gust, Wind Direction, Barometric Pressure – if available, Rainfall, Damage, and Storm Surge. Measured weather data is always appreciated but we do
    accept estimated. We are also available to provide backup communications
    to official agencies such as Emergency Operations Centers, Red Cross
    officials, and Storm Shelters in the affected area. We also collect and
    forward significant damage assessment data to FEMA officials stationed in
    the National Hurricane Center.
