The following has been received from Region 3.
IARU Region 1 Emergency Communications Co – Ordinator
Typhoon alert – frequencies in use
The Philippine Amateur Radio Association (PARA) has activated its Emergency Net to monitor tropical typhoon Rumba (Phils codename Gorio) as it traverses the Eastern Visayas Region in the general direction of the Bicol and NCR regions.
Ham Emergency Radio Operations (HERO) operators are using 7.095 MHZ as the emergency calling frequency.
PARA is therefore requesting neighboring ham operators and their national associations for their utmost understanding and cooperation to stand clear of the frequency until the emergency net is stood down.
