“Amateur Radio operators should be made aware that emergency traffic pertaining to the Haitian earthquake is expected on 14265 kHz. CO2KK, Arnie, the IARU Region II Area C Emergency Coordinator, has organized nets on 7045 and 3720 kHz. As of 0245Z today no HH stations had checked in. Additional frequencies may be activated on different bands at different times of day, so be sure to listen carefully before transmitting to make sure you are not interfering with emergency traffic.
Late yesterday a 7.0 magnitude earthquake hit Haiti (HH), which has since been followed by more than a dozen aftershocks. HH2/HB9AMO, Pierre, is OK and was located about 140 km north of Port-au-Prince in Cap Haitien. He is there working for the United Nations World Food Program. Later today Pierre will be traveling to the capital. Communications in and out of Haiti have been largely cut. No word has been received as of yet from any of the national HH Amateur Radio operators”.
