06/03/2015

The Hurricane Watch Net (HWN) will celebrate its 50th anniverary on the air, June 13-14. HWN members will be using the call sign WX5HWN, operating on 14.325 MHz but with stations active on or near 7.268 MHz as well.

“Our net control stations located around the continental US, eastern Canada, the Caribbean, Mexico, and Honduras will all use WX5HWN as we pass the virtual baton from member to member,” explained HWN Manager Bobby Graves, KB5HAV.

This will mark HWN’s first on-air activity using WX5HWN. Electronic certificates are available by request (by June 30) for valid contacts. Visit the HWN website for more information. — Thanks to HWN Manager Bobby Graves, KB5HAV
