Channels 1 and 2

Channels 1 and 2 on 60 meters will be available starting on August

situation will remain in place until the storm has passed and the
need for these channels no longer exists, or on September 6,
whichever comes first.

These frequencies will be used: Channel 1 Primary voice traffic 5332
kHz channel center, 5330.5 kHz USB voice; and Channel 2 Digital
traffic 5348 kHz channel center, 5346.5 kHz USB with 1.5 kHz offset

yield to operational traffic related to Hurricane Ida.
