The Mexican Federation of Radio Experimenters requests through its Emergency Coordinator, Zian Julio Aguirre Taboada, XE1ATZ, additional protection of the 14 120 kHz frequency, 20 meter band, which they are using in emergency communications in response to damage caused by Hurricane Otis in the state of Guerrero. It should be noted that at 00:00 UTC on October 27, the SSB CQ WW contest will begin, so colleagues are asked to help so as not to affect these communications.
Summary of frequencies for which protection has been requested:
80m band: 3690 kHz
40m band: 7060 kHz and 7095 kHz
20m band: 14 120 kHz
We appreciate the help of colleagues from all regions in supporting emergency communications in Mexico.
