    Keep an eye on the website. If legitimate emergency management nets stand up on AR frequencies, the League will undoubtedly document them on their front page.

    In this case, however, that works to your advantage.

    A**L is deeply devoted to the idea of amateur radio participating in emcomm. They never miss an opportunity to play up a chance for hams to take part in a major disaster, even in a token role. In fact, their submissions to FCC and to Congress largely depend on the idea that AR == emcomm.

    So if there are any legitimate communication nets involved with the hurricane, you can bet your lunch money that they will be advertised front and center at

    In fact, they are already at it.

    What's on a WX net that's better than the up to the minute news and video on the Weather Channel?

    I was trying to avoid the descent into that subject, although I personally think it's a very reasonable question. :)

    Hmmm, that choice of CW frequency needs some review.

    I'm looking forward to see if the FT8 folks give way to the "emcomm" net. :)

    That said, I suspect that frequency choice has been on the books in emcomm plans for a very long time, and probably predates FT8 by decades, and simply hasn't been updated.

    Some other than Newington get it, <>
    One excerpt in particular stands out, "The old fall back of “emergency communications” is no longer
    seen as an adequate reason so we need more relevant reasons to get any new bands, and going into
    the future, to maintain access to our existing bands." Maybe it's time for the ARES bunch to spin off into their own group?
