      IARU Region 2 and Radio Club de Chile Request Amateurs to Keep Emergency
      Frequencies Clear (Feb 27, 2010) -- A massive 8.8 magnitude earthquake
      hit Chile today at 0634 UTC, triggering a potential tsunami. IARU Region
      2 and the Red Chilena Nor Austral de Servicio (RECNA) have suggested
      Amateur Radio operators monitor the following emergency communications
      frequencies for traffic pertaining to the earthquake and tsunami: 3.738,
      3.750, 7.050, 7.100, 14.200, 14.350, 21.200, 21.350, 28.300 and 28.500
      MHz. IARU Region 2 Area Emergency Coordinator Jorge Sierra, LU1AS,
      reports that there is now traffic at frequencies of 40 meters from
      people seeking information from people in Chile: "We would
      appreciate if amateurs would leave free the frequencies used by RECNA,
      as well as the usual IARU Region 2 frequencies on in 20, 40, and 80
      meters." In addition to the above frequencies, you may also want to
      listen to the worldwide emergency communication Center of Activity
      frequencies: 14.300, 18.160 and 21.360 MHz. Other suggested
      monitoring frequencies are 3.720, 7.045 and 7.060 MHz. Hawaiian Amateur
      Radio operators on the lookout for a possible tsunami are monitoring
      7.088 and 3.888 MHz. -- Thanks to Radio Club de Chile's (RCC)
      Emergency Coordinator Aldo Oppici, CE3WAD, and W2VU, KI6SN, K3ZO, PY2ZX,
      PY5YA and El Grupo Argentino de Radiotelegrafia for the information.
