via the ARRL: Southern Territory SATERN Net to Activate on Saturday, August 26, for Hurricane Harvey

The Salvation Army Team Emergency Radio Network (SATERN) Southern Territory Net will activate on Saturday, August 26, 1400 UTC, and continue until Sunday, August 26 at 0100 UTC (9 AM until 8 PM Central Time) on its regular frequency of 7.262 MHz.

“The net will be monitored by SATERN stations from around the Southern Territory — especially those in the western part of the Southern Territory — for any stations checking in from Texas and Louisiana impacted by Hurricane Harvey,” said National SATERN Liaison Bill Feist, WB8BZH.

Feist said the net will be looking for any emergency, priority, or health and welfare traffic from hurricane-affected areas, brief situation reports from stations regarding the extent of any hurricane wind damage — or tornado damage — and its extent, whether there is any flood damage and its extent, and if there are power outages. The net also requests information on any communication disruptions — what kind and how widespread.
