Japan Quake/Tsunami Disaster Relief Frequencies

For those of you operating JT65A or WSPR, Winmor, or any other mode on or near the frequencies mentioned below, you might want to consider operating elsewhere for the course of the disaster.

Best regards,

Gary, K7EK


The following information received from Ken Yamamoto JA1CJP of JARL
these frequencies are known to be in use for the response to the
Japanese earthquake.

7043 kHz SSB controled by JR3QHQ the Osaka branch manager of JARL He is

gathering incident information on radio and forwarding this information

onto the internet.

7075 kHz SSB is operated by JL3YSP in Wakayama occasionally.

7030 kHz which is the JARL emergency communication frequency in their
bandplan is in use by JA7RL (JARL regional HQ station).

The last frequency is particularly QRP relevant. There are obviously
propagation factors which would limit their range but would all
amateurs please make every effort to avoid interfering with emergency
communications on these frequencies.
