Following Earthquake in Haiti, Radio Amateurs Asked to Keep Frequencies Clear 
August 14, 2021 | ARRL

In a statement received by ARRL on August 14, 2021, Region 2 of the International Amateur Radio Union (IARU-R2) has requested that radio amateurs in the Americas keep the following frequencies clear to support emergency communications in Haiti following an earthquake this morning: 3750 kHz, 7150 kHz and 14330 kHz. The statement came from IARU-R2 Emergency Coordinator (EMCOR) Carlos Alberto Santamaría González, CO2JC.

According to preliminary information from the United States Geological Survey (USGS), a 7.2 magnitude earthquake struck Haiti on August 14, 2021 at 1229 UTC, about 12 kilometers northeast of Saint-Louis-du-Sud and 33 kilometers to the east-northeast of Les Cayes, Haiti; 18.352 degrees north and 73.4801 degrees west at a depth of 10 km.

Mr. Jean-Robert Gaillard, HH2JR, President of the Radio Club of Haiti, reported significant structural damage.

International news reports fear high casualties.

Hello everyone:

This year, instead of a CERT only annual exercise, the CDCCC decided to incorporate the annual CERT exercise with the Tolt Dam evacuation drill. This is scheduled for Saturday, September 25th. I am seeking SNOVARC personnel to assist with radio comms, crowd and traffic management. More details will be made available as the drill is finalized. For now, please save the date. The drill will begin at 0800 hours and go to approximately 1300 hours. Please contact me if you can help out.

 

Thanks in advance for considering to help out here.

Re: New Ht

Paul Butzi (W7PFB)
 

The Baofeng radios have their place in the world of amateur radio.  For me, that place is as an inexpensive radio to go in get home bags, bugout bags, etc. 

As a first radio for a new ham, I think they’re not that great.  The user interface is horrid and that’s a source of confusion and frustration for new hams, who are often already struggling with repeater offsets, CTCSS tones, etc. On top of the UI issues my experience is the Baofeng radios are not really stellar performers on receive and many of them are very dirty transmitters  I can live with those shortcomings in a radio that spends its life in a bag being a cheap backup radio but that’s not what I’d suggest for a new ham.

I’ll cast my vote in the Yaesu FT-60 column.

Honestly, I’d say get the Baofeng and dip your toes in the water until you have a better idea what you want to do. Later, you stick the Baofengs in your glove compartments.

Re: New Ht

Bob Otis
 

Paul make a good point about depending on what you want to do, but for basic FM while you figure it out, I don’t think you can beat the FT-60 for the money (under $200).  With a good antenna mine has been very reliable and durable.  It also has a good “feel” to it, and is programable with CHIRP.  With respect to Baofengs, I have a plethora of them and the FT-60 stands head and shoulders above all of them (in my opinion, far more than the price differential).

 

73 and good luck, Bob

Do they want basic uhf/vhf or any digital modes?

Any of the big name (Kenwood, Icom, etc) basic 2m/70cm ones would be a good choice, and they would be able to sell it if they upgrade to a fancier one - the cheaper brands don't resell so well. I started with an Alinco back in the day and it worked perfect for repeaters and events.

If forced to pick I would go with Kenwood or Icom mainly because of the availability of accessories, battery packs, etc.

For HT I prefer to buy new when I can afford it because they get thrown around so it's hard to tell how good of shape they really are, and a used (or worse shelf sitter) means getting a new battery soon. For mobile I try to get used because if it works it will probably keep working. YMMV
