ARLB031 Hurricane exercise

The National Hurricane Center in Miami, Florida, has asked amateurs
to participate in a communication preparedness exercise to kick off
the 1998 hurricane season.

Amateurs are asked to check into the Hurricane Watch Net on 14.325
MHz on Sunday, May 31, 1998, between 1600 and 1800 UTC. Stations are
requested to provide a real-time report of their current weather
conditions, including wind speed, wind direction, and barometric
pressure. Measured conditions are preferred, but estimated wind
speeds will be accepted.

These reports will be forwarded to W4EHW at the National Hurricane
Center. W4EHW will be on frequency. Stations do not need to continue
monitoring the net once their reports have been forwarded to the
National Hurricane Center.

''We look forward to talking with you on the 31st and hope that the
only time that we have to do so this season is during exercises,''
said Hurricane Watch Net Manager Jerry Herman, N3BDW.
