Emergency Communications in two disasters

When a fierce cyclone came ashore in India, and a devastating earthquake
struck the Philippines, it was radio amateurs who provided vital communications.

As Cyclone Phailin headed towards India's Bay of Bengal authorities quickly
evacuated dangerous areas. The Amateur Radio Society of India was set to
go with trained radio amateurs.

That monster storm in the very same region 14 years ago killed 10,000 people.
This time, with the early evacuation of many thousands, the death toll was
about 21.

Jayu Bhide VU2JAU asked that 7145 kHz be kept clear as Dilip VU2DPI, Mithilesh
VU3BHI and Sameer VU2AOR worked around the clock, passing essential messages
and doing what they could to help.

Then an earthquake two days later saw activation of the Ham Emergency Radio
Operators by the Philippine Amateur Radio Association.

Ramon Anquilan DU1UGZ said as crews were about to clean up the debris left
by Typhoon Santi, the 7.2 magnitude earthquake occurred in the Bohol Province
causing numerous casualties and damage. He asked that 7095 kHz be kept clear
for emergency traffic.

Messages over HF, on 2-metres and via Echolink included that many buildings
had been damaged, bridges collapsed, power outages, schools closed, weather
reports and aftershocks.

When disaster strikes, often the emergency communications provided by radio
amateurs supplements and supports those engaged in relief and rescue work.

-Jim Linton VK3PC, Chairman IARU Region 3 Disaster Communications Committee.
