The use of HF frequencies by RNRE in Italy for the flooding in the North West of their country and TRAC for the Earthquake in Van province of Turkey has finished. There is no further need to take care when operating around 3.643, 3.760MHz, 7.045-7.060 and 7.092-7.095 MHz.

Thanks to all amateurs who kept the frequencies clear for emergency traffic.

Italy flood response

Saturday, November 5th, 2011

Received from Greg Mossop, G0DUB IARU Region 1 Emergency Communications Co-Ordinator:

Following flash flooding in the Liguria and Tuscany regions of North
West Italy last week which killed 10 people, further heavy rain has
struck the region killing more people in flooding. The Amateur Radio
Voluntary communications group RNRE has been asked by their government
to provide additional radio communications in the affected areas from
Friday 4th November until at least Monday 7th November.
HF Frequencies which may be used in Italy are 3.760MHz, 3643MHz and
7.045-7.060MHz. Amateurs are asked to listen carefully before using
these frequencies to avoid causing QRM to emergency nets.
