Drew Glasbrenner, KO4MA, AMSAT VP Operations has received a request
from amateurs involved with emergency communications in the Azores,
requesting we forego L/v operation on AO-92 this week.

Hurricane Lorenzo is expected to pass through the Azores as a Cate-
gory 4 storm Tuesday and Wednesday, and they are requesting AO-92
remain in U/v for potential emergency traffic. Please be aware of
and yield to any emergency traffic, on any satellite, coming from
the area during this time. Passes covering the Azores and Portugal
are the most critical.

We realize that there have been a few moves and cancellations for
this mode recently, and I ask for understanding and cooperation.
Emergency use is always first priority, and AMSAT is happy to assist
in any way we can.

[ANS thanks Drew Glasbrenner, KO4MA, AMSAT VP Operations for the
 above information]
