Hurricane Watch Net activity on 14325 USB
« on: August 26, 2020, 1939 UTC »
Just heard a couple operators relaying the latest forecast information and asking for other check-ins at 1933 UTC on the Hurricane Watch Net frequency.

As a reminder, the other HWN frequency, often used at night, is 7268 LSB.

Pretty funny, I picked it up about the same time  ;D and was about to post.  My understanding is that 7268 should be active at 2100 utc.

Fair reception

1940 OM talking at length, noisy, hard to decipher.
Zenith T/O G500, Zenith T/O Royal 7000, Emerson AR-176, Zenith 8S154, T/O 7G605 (Bomber), Tecsun PL-880, Zenith 5S320, Realistic DX 160 using 40 feet of copper wire.

Thanks for the updated info on the other frequency.

As of now, 1949 UTC, operator K5XDF out of Louisiana has a super clear, loud signal on 14325U as he talks with others are who much less audible from my radio up here near Seattle.
