** NOAA frequencies (in kHz):

NMN, Chesapeake, 4426, 6501, 8764, 13089. NMG, New Orleans, 4316, 8502, 12788

When there are active Tropical systems in the Atlantic, Marine Weather Center (Chris) runs a net at 2300 UTC/1900 AST on 8137 USB.

Note 2: Please hail Marine Weather Center 15 minutes before the net so that Chris knows

where to aim his antenna to reach you. This net is geared primarily to offshore Atlantic and Pacific passagemakers. For schedule updates see mwxc.com

Note 3: The Transatlantic Cruisers Net is held only during passagemaking periods to and from the Caribbean and Europe/North America. KPK is assisted by WCY, KNC and KJM.
