If WX4NHC is activated, the statement will be here in this spot.

EchoLink "*WX-Talk*" Conference Room and IRLP node 9219 will be monitored.


Amateur Weather Enthusiasts and ON-NHC Volunteers may report directly to WX4NHC on-line.


ON-NHC Volunteers are both Ham Radio Operators and Non-Ham weather observers that use their own weather instruments to submit "Surface Reports" directly to NHC over the Internet via the WX4NHC on-line report form. These "Surface Reports" are very important as they give Hurricane Specialists at NHC a better idea of what is actually happening at ground-level during the storm.

The WX4NHC Group continues to expand its efforts to increase the quantity and quality of surface reports to include many different modes of reception and groups of people; including HF, VHF/UHF IRLP & ECHOlink,  VHF & HF APRS, CWOP NOAA Program, CARMEN Program and ON-NHC Weather Observers Network.

(see our web site for more information on these programs):


WX4NHC is very proud to have maintained an active ham radio Station at the National Hurricane Center for the past 27 years.

We appreciate all of the volunteers who help with our efforts.
