came in to action soon. In Siliguri few buildings are damaged and a school
building in Pokhara, where the epic centre of earth quack is damaged badly
but no casualty was reported.
                                    OM Suhas VU2SMN joined the net and helped
a lot. OM Suhas VU2SMN remained with Jayu VU2JAU/AT150ITU till late night.
Soon 9N1AA OM Satish and 9N!HA OM Suresh was contacted
OM Suresh said that he will be on HF in the night but till than OM Satish
9N1AA will be in communication on HF. OM Satish told that there is no power
and all are facing problems to get sets on the air. It was advised that they
have to transmit only when required with small over?s. He will be operating
HF using 25 watts. He also reported that almost 2000 people are affected
due to the earth quack having power of 7.7 RV strong. 15 Nepal HAMs are on
VHF and are in contacts with each other from different locations. OM Satish
9N1AA is coordinating with Nepal police.
                                    In India 50+ causalities are reported
at different areas. It is also understood from OM Kaustubh VU2UUU that 4

Nepal earthquake report #2

The rescue and recovery work is continuing after the devastating 7.8 on the
Ritcher scale earthquake that claimed at least 2,700 lives, with many missing,
and widespread damage in Nepal.

The Nepal Amateur Radio Society is providing emergency communications. Satish
Krishna Kharel 9N1AA reports that with help from VU2 in India and others
work is continuing. This includes the use of four wheel drive vehicles.

Satish 9N1AA said information has already been provided on the status of
about 80 loved ones of foreign radio amateurs and others.

He was using solar power in coordination with the Nepal police in Kathmandu.
Also sharing the emcomm work with Suresh Upreti 9N1HA.

The earthquake on April 25 caused landslides on Mount Everest during the
climbing season, where some lives of mountaineers and others were lost.

The capital of Kathmandu was among the areas hit. An emergency net on 20
metres on 14.205 and/or 14.215 MHz, has Jayu Bhide VU2JAU/AT150ITU, the Amateur
Radio Society of India (ARSI) National Coordinator for Disaster Communication,
as net controller.

Other VUs are involved. Activity has also been reported on 7.100, 18.160
and 21.360 MHz.

Nepal's first Amateur Radio repeater, set up in 2012 by the National Society
for Earthquake Technology, had a dozen hams who previously engaged in simulated
emergency tests.

The 9N1KS repeater 434.500 MHz in and 145.000 MHz out, is on the outskirts
of Kathmandu with coverage into the Kathmandu Valley.

There is no cross-border movement so far of radio equipment and radio amateurs.

Nepal earthquake update #3

The death toll of at least 4,300 people and tens of thousands are homeless
following the 7.9 earthquake that hit Nepal on the weekend is still engaged
in rescue and recovery.

The quake also triggered avalanches on Mt Everest with many climbers killed
or lost.

Jayu VU2JAU the National Coordinator for Disaster Communication in neighbouring
India reported that after the first two days the rescue teams are still finding
it difficult to trace the missing as well as those who are buried in the
ruins.

He said all the officials and police department are working hard among the
chaos to help people.

Jayu VU2JAU said: "More than 2500 people are reported to be untraceable.
As one of hotels was demolished where four doctors were staying, only one
survived and is located in Red Cross camp injured condition. This is one
case but many cases possible like that as the hotel must be holding many
people.

"It was also reported that three places had landslides where casualties are
expected to be more and the list may increase."

He reported that people are stranded in many places like at the Airport,
Base Camps, Indian Embassy and other places.

?Nepal HAMs are facing hard situation. Now another two HAMs along with Satish
9N1AA and Suresh 9N1HA are supported by Pravin 9N1KK and Akarsha 9N1ZZ, along
with VU2DMS joined them in operation," said Jayu VU2JAU.

The Indian Embassy has arranged busses to evacuate people from various places.

Four buses from Mungaling to Birganj, but face two broken bridges on the
way and passengers are required to change buses and walk.  Another ten buses
are running from Pokhara to Mungling since Pokhara reported maximum casualties.

Four HAMs from Gujarat left for Nepal headed by Zala VU2ZNN. They will be
reaching Nepal today and set up stations at critical places.

Similarly a four-member team of HAMs are expected to reach tomorrow from
North Delhi. Jayu VU2JAU along with Ananda VU2AGJ and Sandip VU2MUE have
decided to set up HF and VHF stations at Gorakhpur on the Indo-Nepal border.

Nepal update #4

The situation is still one of chaos. The Government of Nepal has asked all
people to stay out of buildings due to them being unsafe.

Jayu S. Bhide VU2JAU, the National coordinator for Disaster Communication
in India, said a delay occurred in emergency communication when the earthquake
demolished the building where emergency communications were installed.

Satish 9N1AA along with Tej 9N1DX were later able to come on the air. "Many
messages piled up to pass on to Nepal to find missing people."

Jayu VU2JAU, Suhas VU2SMN, Paddy VU2PEP, Rakesh VU3PUA and many more HAMs
were busy passing messages as well as forwarding them to relatives.

People around the globe wanted information about their friends and relatives.
It was raining in the evening which also created some problems.

The total casualties are not known but one budget hotel multiplex was demolished.
It was reported that more casualties are possible in unreachable areas.

Jayu VU2JAU said: "A request was also made to Ministry of Nepal to make mobile
roaming free so that Indian mobiles as well as other mobiles can be used."

"It will reduce the load on wireless communication. The mobile network and
some telephones lines were restored along with power in some places.

"The flights from Kathmandu airport were delayed and people were stranded
several places. More than 17 Red Cross camps were set up."

HAMs from India and other countries provided essential communication during
the disaster. The coordination and cooperation has also proved one world
one language - Amateur Radio.

Nepal report #5

As the time passes the situation in Nepal, hit by a 7.8-magnitude earthquake
over the weekend, seems to be getting worse.

Many people are still buried in collapsed buildings and caught in rubble
from landslides and there are fears that the number of deaths may increase
above the estimated 5,000.

Rescue teams are moving away from capital of Kathmandu, to reach devastated
villages near the quake's epicenter.

National Coordinator for Disaster Communication in India, Jayu S. Bhide VU2JAU,
reports that authorities have issued 9N7-prefixed callsigns to some visiting
HAMS.

He said there was very limited or no power and mobile towers down and mobile
recharging was impossible.

"In spite of the appalling conditions, the HAM radio operation is in progress
and the Nepalese Government has started issuing HAM licences to those visiting
HAMs, with callsigns that have the 9N7 prefix.

"The authorities have asked for radio stations to be set up at different
places to cover most of devastated areas. We are also requesting them to
operate on different frequencies to avoid QRM," said Jayu VU2JAU.

The whole of India has seemingly swung into action to aid the earthquake
victims in neighboring Nepal, especially those HAMs who were rarely seen
previously.

Jayu VU2JAU, Suhas VU2SMN, Peddy VU2PEP Rakesh VU3PUA, Sarath VU2SCV along
with some other HAMs have controlled the emergency communication, keeping
the frequency busy with messages.

They are also trying to get information on the missing people to inform their
relatives. A list of 17 missing people from Maharashtra has been passed to
9N1AA, along with 67 others from various countries, with Nepalese authorities
involved.

Landslides and relentless rain continue to slow down the effort. Jayu VU2JAU
said: "It was raining during the night hampering the rescuers."

Nepal report #6

The Nepal Amateur Radio Society continues to provide emergency communications
during the ongoing rescue effort, despite power cuts and damaged communication
infrastructure.

Satish 9N1AA along with daughter Tej 9N1DX are using solar power in coordination
with the Nepal police in Kathmandu. Also sharing the emcomm work using handhelds
and 20m, was Suresh 9N1HA, Pravin 9N1KK and Akarsha 9N1ZZ.

Missing persons inquiries are being handled, and these need to be checked
against lists held by the Red Cross at these links.

http://google.org/personfinder/2015-nepal-earthquake/
http://familylinks.icrc.org/nepal-earthquake/en/pages/home.aspx

There will be a more complete casualty list available as the Red Cross increases
relief work.

Rescue teams moving to reach devastated villages in remote areas are finding
more bodies, injuries, damage and homelessness.

The famed Mt Everest had landslides triggered during a peak climbing period,
with many mountaineers losing their lives, or being injured.

National Coordinator for Disaster Communication in India, Jayu Bhide VU2JAU,
reports that authorities have issued 9N7-prefixed callsigns to some visiting
radio amateurs.

But the situation of foreign radio amateurs and their equipment, for use
during the disaster for emcomm work, remains unclear at this time. Shipments
of Amateur Radio gear into Nepal for the emergency is problematical.

Nepalese authorities have not joined the Tampere Convention that allows cross-border
movements of Amateur Radio in disasters.

The ARRL along with others are trying to respond with VHF handhelds and other
equipment.

However the process to get even basic emergency supplies and Search and Rescue
Teams into the area is hampered by restricted capacity at Kathmandu Airport
and Customs procedures.

Although the Nepalese Government has signed a customs agreement for the emergency
relief consignments, this is solely for humanitarian shipments, not communications
equipment.

A few Indian, Chinese and Turkish radio amateurs are believed to be embedded
in rescue and welfare organisations headed for, or already in Nepal.

Jayu VU2JAU said a network on 20m is handling emergency traffic, and neighboring
India has taken a lead in that activity.

The Military Auxiliary Radio System (MARS), a US Department of Defence sponsored
program, is now also involved in links between Nepal and the USA.

The known frequencies are 14.205, 14.215 and all the designated IARU Region
3 Emergency Centre of Activity frequencies, found in the IARU Emergency Telecommunications
Guide at:
http://www.iaru.org/emergency-telecommunications-guide.html

All are asked to keep the frequencies in use by Nepal clear and allow the
Nepalese stations to control the flow of messages - the same international
radio requirement given to any distress message.

5th Update on Earthquack

As the time passes it is becoming difficult for rescue party to find out people as frequent rain is creating another problem. Everybody is worried as mobiles are not working due to charging facility is not possible. The efforts are made to procure 100 mobile chargers for Nepal which will be air lifted soon.

One photograph of a US lady named as Jeanne Debari , received late night by Jayu VU2JAU who immediately sent to OM Satish 9N1AA who further gave it to Rescue party who will be searching in the devastated area with the hope that she will be located in good condition.

Rescuers are finding it difficult to identify people due to lack of information supplied by relatives along with no photographs. Inspite of all the problems everybody trying to identify people. The three persons that  previously reported as missing have all been found in Kangchenjunga. They were able to borrow a cell phone and call home, A Power project is under progress where 500 people are working and all are reported safe. Mr. S.R.Bole  working there as project in charge was unable to contact his family in India and family was worried for last 4 days . When I Jayu VU2JAU phoned them that all the people are safe in that highly divested area and Mr. S.R.Bole is supposed to be safe listening this family members started crying on telephone and praised all of us for the efforts.

There are many incidences like this and we all are proud on our HAM Radio emergency operation. Specially we are able to reach in highly divested areas and provide the vital information’s . Roads are still blocked rescue party is unable to reach in the interior areas but every one expect that roads will open by evening and then the work will be started again.

We understand from VU2JAU, who is in constant touch with Nepal, that the Nepalese Government is allowing guest operators to operate . The visiting hams must file their application to the authorities citing visiting license ONLY.

 In a day or two the guest license will be issued Guest operators will not be allowed to use their home call signs. There are some bad news also received 10 people reported died in disaster that contains one Japanese, Four US residents, and 5 Indians .

In the event of all these incidences some of the people want to thank all the HAMs for the hard work done and making a difference. All the amateur radio operators are to be appreciated in a time like this. Really great coordination between all HAMs like Peddy VU2PEP, Suhas VU2SMN, Sarath VU2SCV, Rakesh  VU3PUA, Jayu VU2JAU along with Walid bhai  A41LD can be observed.

Nepal report #7

As the massive earthquake disaster in Nepal enters its second week with the lives lost reaching

6,200, many injured and made homeless, recovery work continues after the worst calamity in

that country for more than 80 years.  

Jayu S. Bhide VU2JAU, the National Coordinator for Disaster Communication in India, reports

that about 4,000 people have died as a result of the 7.8 scale earthquake. The eventual toll is

expected to grow as rescue teams reach more remote areas.

He said people are still looking to re-charge their mobiles and 130 chargers have now been

distributed and part of the emcom work has been the issuing of photographs trying to locate

missing persons.

Jayu VU2JAU said: “An APRS station in New Delhi set up by Sandip Baruha VU2MUE has

connected one Italian APRS station in Nepal and exchanged messages. More information is

expected on the system.”

He said: “There are two new callsigns issued, Jose 9N3AA and Ravinder 9N3RT. There are

another four 9N1 stations in operation from different places. At least nine VU India ham

operators are continuously watching the operation”

Meantime Fin Ban BA1RB said that two Chinese radio amateurs have arrived in Nepal and they

met with Satish Krishna Kharel 9N1AA, Senior Advocate NAROS the Nepal Amateur Radio

Society.

“The experienced operators BA4TB and BD4TR have with them VHF/UHF stations as well as

an HF station,” he said.

In all disasters there is a shift from search and rescue activities to one of recovery. In Nepal this

transition is beginning.

The situation remains difficult in that country, but as international resources have been deployed,

such as extra equipment from the International Telecommunications Union ITU, the electric

power situation is improving and with it normal means of communication.

News is that the 20m emergency communication net run by NAROS has closed.

From India, China and Turkey and elsewhere, radio amateurs remain, until no longer required by

the Nepal Police and other agencies.

The Military Auxiliary Radio System MARS which is known to use ham radio on frequencies

just outside the Amateur Radio bands, has been linking Nepal with the USA.

Dr Sanjeeb Panday 9N1SP has also been operating throughout the emergency following the

protocols set in previous exercises with the MARS organisation, including the use of SSTV to

pass pictures back to the US to assist the disaster response.

This disaster has generated a large amount of positive publicity for Amateur Radio externally

and hopefully interested more radio amateurs in preparedness and participation in Emergency

Communications Programs.

One example is coverage of the disaster on Canada’s CBC Radio's Spark program with an

interview of Greg Mossop G0DUB, IARU Region 1 Emergency Communications Coordinator.

Greg G0DUB said ham radio is considered to be vital in a disaster situation where

communication with the outside world is difficult. His lengthy interview gives a succinct

overview of how radio amateurs train for, and are effective in disasters.

The full interview can he heard at: http://www.cbc.ca/1.3057421

Satish 9N1AA also appeared via Skype on the Weather Channel, in the USA.

Another strong earthquake hits Nepal

News directly from Nepal is that: "Another shock of 7.1 hit this afternoon.
We are safe. Extent of total loss unknown yet."

That report has been made by Satish 9N1AA and comes from Kathmandu.

The IARU Region 1 reports that at 0705UTC this morning, Nepal was hit by
a new earthquake.

It reports that the planned response from the American MARS service with
9N1SP is now in place should support be required.

However there is still a large international disaster response structure
in the country, from the earlier event that struck on April 25.

Another earthquake in Nepal

At 0705UTC on 12 May Nepal was hit by a new earthquake of magnitude 7.4 followed
by significant aftershocks in the magnitude 5-6 region, the IARU Region 1
Emergency Communications Coordinator, Greg Mossup G0DUB reports.

There is still a large international disaster response structure in the country
from the earlier earthquakes but radio amateurs prepared for any possible
communications failures.

The planned response from the American MARS service with 9N1SP reported that
it was in place from 0900UTC, should support be required.

Dr Panday 9N1SP however reported from the University that he was safe and
that internet service was functioning at that location.

He is maintaining a schedule of contacts with Tim T6TM in Afghanistan should
the situation change however all are concerned about the atability of buildings
which were already weakened by the earlier earthquake

Jayant Bhide VU2JAU was monitoring the usual frequency for Indian-Nepal communications
of 14.210MHz after the earthquake and at 0845UTC reported that he had made
contact with some stations in India who were also affected by the quake but
no Nepal stations.

The IARU Region 1 reports that he has now established contact with 9N1AA
who reports that there is local communications and power disruption with
citizens being encourages to use SMS rather than voice calls, probably to
reduce the load on the networks. He now has a schedule with 9N1AA on an hourly
basis.

The 9N1Emergency group on Facebook has established telephone contact with
Satish 9N1AA who confirmed he had communications. Their contact with Nepal
is also now on a scheduled rather than a continuous basis.

To demonstrate the extent of the communications infrastructure now in the
area the International Red Cross are indicating that any journalists who
want news of the latest event can call a contact person in the country.

The latest earthquake will inevitably lead to missing person enquiries and
Radio Amateurs are reminded of the Red Cross facility at http://familylinks.icrc.org/nepal-earthquake/en/Pages/Home.aspx
which should be used for these enquiries.

Although there is no apparent need for amateur radio emergency communications
at this time, everyone is reminded that IARU Emergency Centres of Activity
along with 14.210MHz may be in use and to please listen carefully before
transmitting.

There is however no need to call and 'keep a frequency clear' as this may
affect communications which are happening local to the disaster area e.g.
Afghanistan and India.
