Hams Help in Thai Flooding; Ask for Clear Frequencies

The Radio Amateur Society of Thailand (RAST) is asking amateurs around the world in to keep open frequencies in the 40-meter band being used for flood relief communications in the wake of the country's worst flooding in over 60 years. The ARRL reports that 7.060 to 7.063 MHz are being used for emergency communications, along with three 2-meter frequencies.
