Plymouth Navigational Warnings (PLYMNAVWARNS)
PLYMNAVWARNS are messages signalled to Naval authorities or faxed/emailed to the commercial merchant authorities that report short term navigational information of immediate interest to local mariners. For example they report lights temporarily extinguished or buoys temporarily off station. The information is not normally promulgated to the recreational maritime community however; QHM Website will publish Plymnavwarns, which will be updated accordingly.
Both PLNTM and PLYMNAVWARNS are passed to the Hydrographic Office at Taunton where the Maritime Safety cell may then re-promulgate the information as either WZ messages, Navarea 1 messages or even an Admiralty Notice to Mariners. Vessels equipped with Navtex receivers can thus receive the information when urgent.
PLYMNAVWARNS generally contain short-term information concerning defective navigation aids, dangers or other important details. They are numbered consecutively starting at the beginning of the year and a list of those remaining in force is promulgated at the beginning of each month. PLYMNAVWARNS are sent by signal to all local Ministry of Defence vessels and shore authorities and by fax to local commercial operators and marinas. A verbal update of those in force can be obtained from Longroom Port Control.
