As of 1500z, or 11 AM EDT/AST Tuesday, Hurricane Felix is 460 miles

Category 1 hurricane, with maximum sustained winds of 80 mph.  Some
increase in strength is expected.  If Felix were to take a direct
path for Cape Hatteras, the storm's center would arrive on Wednesday
afternoon, August 16.  A hurricane warning is in effect from Little
River Inlet to Chincoteague, VA.
 
The Hurricane Watch Net is expected to be active on 14325 kHz as the

to transmit on this frequency unless directed to do so by net
control stations.  ARRL North Carolina Section Manager Reed Whitten,
