via the RSGB: Keep Haiti emercoms frequencies clear

Following the major earthquake in Haiti on Saturday 14 August, the IARU Region 2 emergency co-ordinator CO2JC has asked amateurs to protect the following emergency frequencies: 3750kHz, 7150kHz and 14330kHz so that emergency traffic can be passed.

Whilst the message is aimed mainly at amateurs in Region 2 (the Americas), the RSGB endorses the message and asks UK amateurs to avoid those specific frequencies unless directly assisting the relief effort.

As previously reported, 3650kHz, 7110kHz, and 14300kHz are also in use in Algeria to provide emergency communication support to the firefighting and rescue services following major forest fires.
