Per direction from the State of Florida Emergency Operations Center, the Florida ARES Emergency Net on HF, which runs on 3950 KHz primarily or on 7242 KHz if propagation is poor on 75 Meters, will not run 24 hours effective at 1900 EDT this evening. The new hours of the HF edition of the Florida ARES Emergency Net will be from 0700 EDT until 1900 EDT hours daily until the State EOC discontinues the call for the net. The Florida ARES Emergency Net that is running on SARNET is continuing to operate as scheduled.
All the net control stations and relay stations that are scheduled from the West Central Florida Section in the time slots from 0800 EDT through 2000 EDT, please report for your time slot tomorrow as scheduled. The timeslots between 2000 and 0800 are excused and thank you very much for your willingness to serve. If possible, any of the net controls and or relay that had volunteered to serve are most welcome to assist as either relief for the scheduled net controls or as additional relays.
The ARRL West Central Florida Section again extends its sincere thanks to who have volunteered to serve as net controls and relay stations.
