Hurricane Gonzalo Post 1

Hurricane Watch Net Activating for Hurricane Gonzalo

The Hurricane Watch Net (HWN) has announced that it will be activating for
Hurricane Gonzalo. Net operations have been scheduled to start at 2100 UTC
on October 13. The projected forecast track will take Gonzalo through the
British and US Virgin Islands. The National Hurricane Center in Miami said
Gonzalo became a hurricane while moving through the northern Leeward
Islands and that additional strengthening is likely. As of 2100 UTC, the
storm was about 20 miles southeast of St Martin, with maximum sustained
winds of 75 MPH. The storm is moving northwest (305°) at 12 MPH.

“Since Gonzalo, like Arthur earlier this year, will be affecting land
overnight, the net will initially operate on our primary frequency of
14.325 MHz and then switch to 7.268 MHz at 2100 EDT (Tuesday, October 14,
at 0100 UTC),” said HWN Manager Bobby Graves, KB5HAV.

The net will gather surface weather observations and report them directly
to the National Hurricane Center. Graves noted that the plans are subject
to change.

“Amateur stations in the affected area should be aware of the storm, and be
prepared to operate from a place of safety,” Graves advised. “We do
appreciate the consideration of Amateur Radio operators in keeping our
frequency clear, and listening for possible relays.”
