An Rás Mór, 2014

Saturday, May 31st, 2014

EI4JN, EI7IG and EI8JA assisted on three safety boats at An Rás Mór in Cork Harbour earlier today. Good use was made of the EI7FXR repeater up at Farmers Cross for coordination. Once all three vessels were back in simplex range, operations were then conducted on 144.525, this allowed for coordination between ourselves while leaving the Marine channels free for Race Control, and more important safety traffic.

Conditions were ideal for the day, with no major incidents. A enjoyable day on the water.

Serbian disaster relief communcations.

Thursday, May 22nd, 2014

At this moment the Serbian Radio Association (Savez radioamatera Srbije) carries out disaster relief communications in flooded areas. The control station uses the call sign YU0S. On 80m the frequency 3760 kHz (+ QRM) is used. All radio operators are asked to keep this frequency clear.

On VHF a repeater network with the same callsign supports the operations.
