ARLB036 Hurricane Watch Net to Prepare for 1999 Season

The National Hurricane Center in Miami, Florida, is inviting
amateurs to participate in a communication preparedness exercise
this coming weekend to kick off the 1999 hurricane season.

Amateurs are asked to check into the Hurricane Watch Net on 14.325
MHz on Saturday, June 5, 1999, 1800-2000 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 are
acceptable.

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.

The manager of the Hurricane Watch Net Manager is Jerry Herman,
N3BDW.
