Ecuador Earthquake 16th April 2016

Cesar Pio Santos HR2P reports that following the Ecuador Earthquake on 16th April, an emergency net has formed on 7060kHz LSB for passing messages between Ecuador Radio Amateurs in the most affected areas. Stations in adjacent countries are also monitoring that frequency ready to provide assistance if required.

While Echolink nodes had been the initial source of information from some areas, it is understood some nodes have now been turned off due to energy saving measures.

Radio Amateurs with propagation to South America are requested to keep 7060kHz clear.
