The HWN will remain in continuous operation until further notice. Daytime operation on 14.325 MHz will begin at 1100 UTC each day, continuing for as long as propagation allows. Nighttime operations will be on 7.268 MHz, starting at 2200 UTC and will continue overnight. If propagation dictates, the net will operate both frequencies at the same time.
The net is seeking “observed, ground-truth data” from stations in the affected areas — including wind speed, wind gusts, wind direction, barometric pressure, rainfall, damage, and storm surge. “Measured weather data is always appreciated, but estimated data is accepted,” Graves said. “We will also be interested to collect and report significant damage assessment data back to FEMA officials stationed in the National Hurricane Center.”
