ARLB081 VOLUNTARY COMMUNICATIONS EMERGENCY - CANCELED

The FCC has canceled the voluntary communications emergency declared
recently for 3923 and 7232 kHz in North Carolina, effective 1400 UTC
September 27, 1999. Notification of clearance should be transmitted
on each frequency.

The Tar Heel Emergency Net has resumed its regular daily schedule,
starting at 1930 Eastern time.

North Carolina Section Manager Reed Whitten, AB4W, reports that
amateurs continue to provide communications for emergency operations
centers in Pitt and Edgecombe counties and in shelters--primarily in
Edgecombe County. Most shelters have released their Amateur
operators as telephone service has been restored. Hams continue
providing backup communications for local EOCs, the State EOC in
Raleigh, and the Southern Baptist Convention/American Red Cross mass
feeding efforts. Volunteer operators remain available to replace
those who have traveled into the affected areas.
