As Hurricane Harvey approaches the Texas, various emergency nets are activating. Many of the frequencies used will be outside Region 1 allocations in 80m and 40m but there are some in 20m which may suffer from European QRM if operators are not careful. The US National Hurricane Centre station WX4NHC will activate at 1900UTC 25th August on 14.325. When the 20 meter band closes they are likely to move over to 7.268 or from 0000 UTC. VOIP Hurricane Net likely to activate at 2 PM EDT/1800 UTC on Friday 25th August. The Southern Territory SATERN Net will activate for one day (so far) on Saturday, 26 August 2017 during local daylight hours on its regular frequency of 7.262.
