Amateur Radio Station at the National Hurricane Center

QST - Message to all Amateur Radio Operators

Max Mayfield Director of The National Hurricane Center
sent this message via Ham Radio during our
Hurricane Season On-The-Air Exercise.
June 3rd, 2000

"CQ all Amateur Radio Operators.

This is Max Mayfield, Director of the National Hurricane Center.
June 1st is the official start of the Hurricane Season and it ends on November 30th.

This season is expected to be a busy one and we want everyone to know that we at NHC in Miami
appreciate your participation in relaying weather surface reports from hurricane affected areas,
as well as distributing the Hurricane Advisories to those with no other means of receiving these vital warnings.

As our own Ham Radio Station, WX4NHC, celebrates it's 20th year of volunteer service
at The National Hurricane Center, we extend our thanks
to all Ham Radio operators and wish you a good exercise today.
Thank you."
