Below is a statement on the activation of the Hurricane Net. For the complete statement please go to http://www.hwn.org/policies/activationplans.html
The Hurricane Watch Net will begin net operations at 11:00 AM EDT – 1600 UTC Sunday, September 15th on our primary net frequency of 14.325.00 MHz in response to Ingrid, forecast to be a Category 1 Hurricane at that time. In addition to hurricane force winds, Ingrid is forecast to bring about 10 to 15 inches of rain over a large part of eastern Mexico with isolated amounts of 25 inches possible, especially in areas of mountainous terrain. These rains are likely to result in life-threatening flash flood and mud slides.
The Hurricane Watch Net wishes to thank all parties for allowing us the use of the frequency and allowing a clear space to conduct our net during this dangerous event!
As a special note to those who monitor when the net is active, we ask that you please honor our request for you remain quiet unless specifically called upon for assistance.
