SSCA sponsors Trans-Atlantic Cruisers' Net

Open to everyone including non-members, The Trans-Atlantic Net will offer weather routing by Chris Parker.

By Daria Blackwell - 24/02/2018

Seven Seas Cruising Association (SSCA) has partnered with Chris Parker of Marine Weather Service and two other HAM stations to provide a Trans-Atlantic Cruisers’ Net. Beginning on April 15, and continuing during the traditional crossing seasons for spring and winter, Chris Parker will provide weather routing specifically for those crossing the Atlantic. His Trans-Atlantic passage weather will begin at 2200 UTC on SSB frequencies 8.137 USB and 12.350 USB. SSCA’s net controllers Glenn Tuttle and Jim West, as well as Dick Giddings from the Cruiseheimers and Doo-Dah Nets, will host a cruisers’ net at 2130, one-half hour prior to Chris’ broadcast. They will also stand by to provide relays during the weather net. This service is available to all cruisers, not only SSCA members.
