The Atlantic hurricane season officially started on 1 June and many predictions indicate an above average number of storms this year. Amateur radio continues to play a part in gathering and distributing information for the weather and emergency services each year and radio amateurs in IARU Region 1 are reminded that the same frequencies may be in use by nets in North and Central America to track and deal with the consequences of these severe weather events. It is possible for Region 1 amateurs to cause unintentional QRM to these nets so please listen carefully if operating near these frequencies. A full list can be found on the website www.iaru-r1.org.
