In other related emergency communications news, the “CQ Amateur Radio” magazine for October 2016 contains an interesting summary of recent ham radio emergency assistance following natural disaster in Louisiana and Italy. The full article is posted on page 3 of that issue.

Text excerpt:

Amateur radio operators responded to provide emergency and backup communications for Red Cross shelters throughout the flooding in Louisiana and a magnitude-6.2 earthquake in Italy.

According to the “ARRL Letter”, hams from Louisiana, Alabama, Mississippi, and Arkansas provided communications for Red Cross shelters throughout the flood area for six days.  In Italy, amateurs were providing unspecified communications chores in accordance with “their planned response with their government”, according to the International Amateur Radio Union. The earthquake claimed hundreds of lives and was responsible for significant damage centered on the tourist town of Amatrice.

Thanks to “ham radio news” contained in the October 2016 edition of “CQ-Amateur Radio” magazine.


Please send your newsworthy items to kh6jrm@arrl.net at least two weeks prior to  your event.  I will then send them to Hawaii Island print and electronic media.
