HELP!

Last minute, find ourselves on boat in San Andreas island, Columbia destination Florida. Unable to reach Chris Parker.

Can anyone tell me the frequency and time for Chris Parker down here?

Thanks in advance.

This was last year schedule,

I would try the Caribbean W of 72W into E Pacific: 1330 utc (9:30am AST / 8:30am EST) on 8.137 USB & 12.350 USB.

The 2015/6 details are as follows:

SUBJECT: Wx Update, SCHEDULE, //WL2K R/ Sat31, 11a
SENT: 31-Oct-15 11:15

MESSAGE:
New schedule for SSB Voice Nets & simultaneous Internet Webcasts
Tonight the US undergoes its semiannual time change ritual, so beginning Monday, November 2, there will be a few minor changes to timing of SSB Voice Nets:

Please visit the following link to download pdf files with the schedule and map:

http://mwxc.com/news/?p=199

In plain text, here's the scoop:

E Caribbean & offshore vessels S of 30N moving toward E Caribbean: 7:00am AST (6am EST / 1100 utc) on 4.045 USB & 8.137 USB.

Bahamas, Florida, and other areas within 200mi of Florida: 6:30am EST (1130 utc) on 4.045 USB & 8.137 USB.

US E Coast & offshore vessels N of 30N (Georgia & SouthCarolina may do better on Bahamas/Florida Net): 7:30am EST (1230 utc / 8:30am AST) on 8.137 USB & 12.350 USB.

Caribbean W of 72W into E Pacific: 1330 utc (9:30am AST / 8:30am EST) on 8.137 USB & 12.350 USB.

After traffic is finished on the W Caribbean Net, I'll make a final sweep to the ESE / E / NE from Florida to pick-up any traffic missed earlier in the morning.

NEW NET IN THE EVENINGs:
Any Subscribing Vessel to our SSB Voice Nets is welcome to participate in our new evening Net at 2200 utc (5pm EST / 6pm AST). However, the protocol will be different for this Net, since it's not targeted at any specific group of Islands as are our morning Nets.

Sometime between 2145 utc - 2200 utc, on either 8.137 USB or 12.350 USB, please say your vessel name & approximate location (name an Island you're close to, or Lat/Lon rounded to the nearest degree). When I hear you, I will acknowledge you, and let you know I have you on the list for traffic. If I do not acknowledge you, then I don't hear you, so try the other channel or ask for someone to relay your vessel name & location.

At about 2200 utc I'll start working vessels on my list, grouped logically, and with my antennas pointed in your direction.

One bit of confusion for the first 2 weeks of November is I'll have to handle Salty Dawg vessels on 8.152 USB & 12.350 USB for maybe 30 minutes beginning at 2200 utc...but as soon as I'm done with them, I'll begin working my list of Subscribing Vessels on the traffic list on 8.137 USB & 12.350 USB.

FOR NOW, all the above schedule remains 6 days/week (Daily except Sundays).

Thank you for your continuing support!...Chris Parker.
