Many amateur radio frequencies in Southeast Asia are occupied by disaster communications. This applies especially to the 40m and 20m bands (e.g. 14190 kHz and the SEANET frequency 14320 kHz). Many stations are working with (very) low power because power is not everywhere running again yet. It is a matter of ham spirit to listen especially for weak signals from this regions and keep the affected frequencies clear!
ARGENTINA, LU LR4D (CW) and LR5D (SSB) are active on air from Martin Garcia (SA-055) from Jan 13-16. QSL via LU4AA, bureau ok. --- LU9DA, LU5EW, LU1DWW and other amateurs plan to hit the airwaves in SSB on 10/15/20m signing LU2DT from the lighthouse at Punta Mogotes during the mid of January.
