Chinese Officials Give Kudos to Amateur Radio Operators

As disaster recovery efforts continue following the earthquake in the Wenchuan area of China's Sichuan province on May 12, China's Information Office of the State Council reports that the death toll has reached 67,183 persons as of May 27. Communications in some of the surrounding areas were cut off, and communications in some other areas experienced network congestion due to drastically increased traffic. According to the Chinese Radio Sports Association (CRSA) -- the Chinese IARU Member-Society -- Chinese government officials and the news media have recognized that when communications failed after the earthquake, Amateur Radio operators stepped in to provide vital links.
CRSA designated 14.270, 7.050 and 7.060 MHz for emergency communications use during the quake, but these frequencies are now no longer restricted for this use; however, should a severe aftershock occur, CRSA said it will make the call for them to be kept clear again.
On Monday, May 26, China Central Television (CCTV) reported that, "When all other communication means failed, Amateur Radio operators came out! An Amateur Radio emergency communication network was set up, and one of the commanders, Liu Hu [BG8AAS], called for Amateur Radio operators on air to provide services for disaster relief."

Local Event : THANK YOU to Amateur Radio volunteers at NCSM “Relay For Life”.


Below our Amateur radio team in parade & at exhibition booth

A big thank you to Amateur Radio volunteers from various clubs for helping out with communications as well as participating and assisting in exhibition booth at NCSM “Relay for Life”. It was our first joint event providing communication and a successful one with more then 60 HAM members at the event. Despite a few minor hitches all went well and most of all we enjoyed ourselves. Members took their own initiative in solving problems and most of all we learnt how to work as a team and improve our skills in communication.
