On Saturday, May 30th the Southeast D-STAR Weather Net will again participate in the annual Hurricane Net Test with WX4NHC at the National Hurricane Center. The on-air test will occur between 0900 and 1100 EDT with voice check ins on repeaters connected to REF002A. Repeater Administrators or local stations should connect their local D-STAR repeater or hotspot directly to REF002A during the test period.
