1. This is to notify all users of the 60-meter/5 MHz HF interoperability channels that channels 1 and 2 will be available, as necessary, beginning September 15, 2020 for interoperability between U.S. Government stations and U.S. Amateur Radio stations involved in both Hurricane Sally and western Wildland Fire emergency communications, and will remain active until after the storm / fires have passed and the need for these channels no longer exists.
These frequencies will be used:
Chan 1 – PRI Voice traffic 5332 kHz channel center/ 5330.5 kHz (Dial) USB Voice
Chan 2 – DIG traffic 5348 kHz channel center/ 5346.5 kHz (Dial) USB with 1.5 kHz offset to center of digital waveform.
2. As a reminder, please yield to operational traffic related to Hurricane & Wildland Fire relief efforts. Although the intended use for these channels is interoperability between federal government stations and licensed U.S. amateur radio stations, federal government stations are Primary users and amateurs are Secondary users.//
