via the RSGB: Amateurs help with forest fire comms

Radio amateurs from ARA, the Algerian national society, are assisting their government in the response to forest fires, where 65 people have lost their lives already.

An ARA team was dispatched to the scene of the incident, where communications networks were already weak, to communicate emergency needs between the mobile station in the area and the crisis unit in Tamda via the ARA HQ station.

Frequencies reported in use are 7110kHz, 3650kHz and 14300kHz.

Please take care not to affect emergency operations on those frequencies.
