Carribean and Mexico Disasters - Update 2

Hurricane Maria continues to move through the Caribbean with Puerto Rico the latest to be affected, losing power and many cellular phone stations. The SATERN net is operating on 14.265MHz with bilingual (Spanish/English) operators looking for any messages out of Puerto Rico. It has been reported from the Dominican Republic that some Puerto Rico stations are operating on 7.085 and 7.095 MHz and they are communicating with those stations.

In Mexico the earthquake response continues and the 7.095 MHz frequency is also in local use there as rescuers move into the affected areas. Co-Operation is starting between networks in the area and between all countries in the Caribbean area and their assistance is appreciated.
