Messages from RAC VPFS- Haiti Update

Yesterday we heard from the RAC Ontario Section Traffic Manager…

Today we hear from the RAC Vice President Field Services with the information coming in via the ARES Alert system:

To:
ARES-Alert@yahoogroups.com

I received urgent messages from Greg Mossop IARU EMCOR region 1 and Cesar Pinto Santos IARU EMCOR region 2 earlier tonight stating that a Ham in Haiti was trying to communicate with the SATERN net in french and that were unable to understand.

If you are bilingual and are able to assist, please monitor the following frequencies and listen for Haitian traffic.
7.045 and 3.720 IARU nets
14.265, 7.265 and 3.977 SATERN nets
14.300 Intercontinental Assistance and Traffic nets
EchoLink node 278173 International Radio Emergency Support Coalition

Many thanks!

During the next few days as Haiti begins to recover, there may be traffic flowing into the ARRL NTS System destined for Canadians. This traffic will be moved north towards the regions closest to destination by American NTS stations in hopes of it being picked up by a Canadian operator. The more times you are able to check into nets in your area, the better the chances are that traffic being held for delivery will get through.
