Mexico Emergency Frequencies

The National Emergency Network of the Mexican National Society (FMRE) declared on 8th September that they would be using the following frequencies as they prepared for the arrival of Hurricane Katia.

With the magnitude 8.1 Earthquake hitting Mexico at 0449UTC today, assume that these frequencies are in use now as they respond to that disaster.

20m 14,120 kHz
40m 7,060 kHz
80m 3,690 kHz

14325 kHz was also expected to be used to co-ordinate with the USA Hurricane Watch Net.

Various Winlink nodes may also be used to deal with the emergencies.

With HF propagation disturbed after the X9 solar flare on Wednesday, please take all steps to avoid interference to emergency communications activities in the Caribbean.
