Rowdy's Net - Mobile Maritime Net (Region 3) South East Asian Waters - has changed frequency. The net is primarily for yachts cruising the waters of SE Asia (Japan to Diego Garcia - Hong Kong to Australia) and maintains contacts between yachts and provides information on weather and security/piracy/emergency situations. Gives weather for the region (weather extracted from various forecasters). Every day provides maritime contact for yachts in Region 3 at 0025 Z (25 past midnight GMT - UTC) on 14,323 MHz , at 0055 Z weather forecasts from a number of relevant sites are provided.

Note new times of transmission, due to poor propagation (11th year of sun spot activity)

(Note from Richard, Net Controller: for the previous some 25+ years the net had used 14.320 MHz but were finally driven off by the North Koreans transmitting code on the frequency during net time).
