ARLB034 Clear Frequencies Requested for Caribbean Hurricane
Emergency Traffic

Stations handling emergency traffic during the response to Category
5 Hurricane Iota, just off the eastern coast of Nicaragua, are
requesting clear frequencies.

Radio amateurs not involved in the emergency response are asked to
avoid (plus/minus 5 KHz) the Hurricane Watch Net (HWN) and WX4NHC
(National Hurricane Center) frequencies of 14.325 and 7.268 MHz, as
well as a Honduran emergency net operation on 7.180 MHz (net control
station is HR1JFA), and a Nicaraguan emergency net operating on
7.098 MHz.

With maximum sustained winds of 160 MPH, Hurricane Iota is expected
to bring catastrophic winds, life-threatening storm surge, and
torrential rainfall to Central America.
