Italian Hams Close HF Earthquake Net:from CQ on April 13, 2009 :
The Emergency Communications Coordinator for International Amateur Radio Union Region I (Europe and Africa) says that hams in Italy are no longer using HF for earthquake-relief communications, and that 7045 kHz has been returned to regular amateur usage. CQ Public Service Editor Bob Josuweit, WA3PZO, reports that Greg Mossop, G0DUB, the IARU Region I Emergency Communications Coordinator, said in an e-mail that Italy's National IARU Emergency Communications Coordinator, Alberto Barbera, IK1YLO, had been notified by officials in the Department of Civil Protection (Dipartimento della Protezione Civile) that HF operations had been shut down and that all activities had been transferred to L'Aquila, the city with the greatest damage from the earthquake that rocked central Italy on April 6. Presumably, this local communications is being handled on VHF and UHF.
Mossop added that "it is appropriate to return it to normal use and let normal amateur procedures apply:- Listen before transmitting.- If you hear any station passing emergency traffic then leave the frequency clear and avoid causing QRM."
He also thanked all amateurs for their assistance and support during the past week.
