Ok for those of you that are either Ham radio operators or scanner enthusiasts, I emailed a friend of mine for info about freqs to listen to about Hurricane Katrina. Here is what I got back from him.
Hello all, The W3YJ repeater is currently monitoring the Echolink Hurricane Watch Net via the VK3JED (Echolink node number 42840) conference server. This server is listen only and has been set to automatically mute connected stations so that repeater id's and chat will not interfer with the net operations. The National Hurricane Center has been checking in regularly collecting reports. Band conditions are marginal on 20 meters but I am hearing the net control and some stations checking in and giving reports on the 14.325 net frequency. I have heard nothing yet today on the 20 meter SATERN frequency of 14.265 but I would imagine that net will be up and running a little later today. The 3.873 TX, LA and MS ARES frequency was coming in very clear overnight up until about an hour ago and is now very hard to copy. -Dave
