I was listening to HWN on 7268 kHz (LSB) during the early morning hours last night and the discussion was riveting as I tracked hurricane Irma through the Caribbean just east of Anguilla, home of the Valley SW station. I used the map of the Caribbean in WRTH. Irma was intensifying as it passed near Barbuda. Naturally, the Valley on 6090 kHz was off the air earlier than scheduled. I wonder how the Valley fared this onslaught.

I'm confident that DRM will one day play a major role on the SW bands during disasters such as this unfortunate one. Irma isn't done yet and I'll be listening. Hopefully, one day I'll be reading data via DRM and SW about such events.
