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 sometime Saturday. 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.
Amateur stations in the affected area should be aware of the
storm, and be prepared to operate from a place of safety.
We will be looking for condition reports from stations in
the affected area. We do appreciate the consideration of
Amateur Operators in keeping our frequency clear, and
listening for possible relays. For information on the storm
and the Hurricane Watch Net, please visit our website,
I thank you for helping us get the word out about our net
