VoIP SKYWARN and Hurricane Nets which we operate by combining both the Echolink and IRLP linked repeater networks, thus providing for more efficient and effective utilization of our available resources while handling critical wide area communications during major severe weather events. The Weekly VoIP SKYWARN/Hurricane Preparation Net meets every Saturday Evening Eastern Daylight Time which is 0000 UTC Sunday. For the weekly net and net activations for hurricanes, we use the EchoLink *WX-TALK* Conference server Node #:7203 which is integrated with IRLP Reflector 9219. There are several backup VoIP integrated conference systems available if our primary system fails. Please see the Our WX Net link in the main menu for details on those backup conference systems.

Hurricane Net   HF Freq 14.325 Active Hurricane Only 

The Hurricane Watch Net consists of a group of licensed Amateur Radio Operators trained and organized to provide essential communications support to the National Hurricane Center during times of Hurricane emergencies. Our primary mission is to disseminate tropical cyclone advisory information to island communities in the Caribbean, Central America, along the Atlantic seaboard of the U.S., and throughout the Gulf of Mexico coastal areas. We also collect observed or measured weather data from amateur radio operators in the storm affected area as well as any post storm damage, and convey that information to the Hurricane Forecasters in the National Hurricane Center via the amateur radio station in the center (WX4NHC).WX4NHC is located at the National Weather Service-Miami,Florida.

 

The 14.300 Nets HF Freq 14.000 Daily (365)
14300.net

14.300 MHz has become a very well known frequency in the Amateur Radio world. There are three major nets in the Western Hemisphere that operate on 14.300 MHz. From early morning until late evening the frequency is busy with traffiic of one form or another. Beginning at 0700 ET daily, The Intercon Net, formally know as The Intercontinental Amateur Traffic Net, starts out the day. Intercon runs until 1200 ET before handing the frequency over to The Maritime Mobile Service Network. The MMSN, which also runs daily, operates from 1200 ET until 9 PM EST / 10 PM EDT or 0200 UTC. After The MMSN raps up. The Pacific Seafarers Net begins operation at 10 PM EST / 11PM EDT or 0300 UTC and runs various lengths of time, depending on traffic load, but usually about 2 hours or less

Let's take a brief look at each net.

The Intercon Net HF Freq 14.300

To promote goodwill and friendly relations among radio operators everywhere.To handle third party traffic and information between individuals in any country where such traffic handling is permitted by treaty or mutual agreement. To provide a means of emergency communications to any location where the normal means are disrupted by local disaster such as fire, earthquake, storms, floods and terrorist activity.

Intercon is probably the least structured, or formal net of the three. Make no mistake about it, some very important and critical traffic has been handled on Intercon over the years, but a little more "ragchewing" is acceptable.

 The Maritime Mobile Service Network  HF Freq. 14.300
The primary purpose of the net is for handling traffic from maritime mobiles and overseas deployed service personnel. MMSN also assists missionaries and persons working abroad. The MMSN has a more formal or structured format than Intercon. Since vessels at sea generally have barefoot or less rigs, running on battery power with wire or vertical antennas, their signals may be hard to copy at times. The Net Control Stations frequently ask all stations to standby while calling for maritime only that may wish to check in. Also, offshore weather information is usually read at about 30 minutes past the hour. Ragchewing is considered a no-no during MMSN. Any station can check into the MMSN when the NCS is asking for general check-in's. If you would like a signal report, audio report or just to say you are "riding along", this is the time to check-in.

 The Pacific Seafarer's Net HF Freq: 14.300

Net handles traffic with vessels mainly in the Pacific Ocean. Utilizing stations from North America to New Zealand / Australia and across the Pacific, Pacsea takes position reports and weather observations from vessels. Pacsea NCS's use special software to post positions on the internet and send observed weather conditions to the weather forecasters for the Pacific. Friends and family may then track their vessel of interest online. The first 25 minutes of the net is open to general check-in's. After that, the roll call portion of the net begins and it is very structured from that point. Any station is welcome to assist as a relay for Pacsea. If your area of interest is The Pacific, check out The Pacific Seafarer's Net.
