The following came in overnight to my email from the RAC Bulletin Service
Seeing that this is a HF Contest Weekend please read carefully
Arnie Coro, CO2KK, Area C, Emergency Coordinator IARU Region 2, reports that Hurricane Sandy is on its way to the Cuban eastern provinces. He reports this is a very serious menace to eastern Cuba because of the large amount of rain it is transporting, that will fall on areas already saturated by heavy rains from a tropical trough.
The Cuba emergency communication nets were activated at 1600 hours October 24, 2012. We kindly ask you to leave these frequencies clear.
7110 kHz primary
7120 kHz secondary
7045 kHz for Eastern Cuba provinces
3740 kHz primary
3720 kHz secondary
Arnie Coro CO2KK (firstname.lastname@example.org) and Carlos Alberto CO2JC will be available for any traffic on the national Cuban emergency net frequencies.
