BID: $ANS-272.02

Drew Glasbrenner, KO4MA, AMSAT VP Operations has received a request

from amateurs involved with emergency communications in the Azores,

requesting we forego L/v operation on AO-92 this week.

Hurricane Lorenzo is expected to pass through the Azores as a Cate-

gory 4 storm Tuesday and Wednesday, and they are requesting AO-92

remain in U/v for potential emergency traffic. Please be aware of

and yield to any emergency traffic, on any satellite, coming from

the area during this time. Passes covering the Azores and Portugal

are the most critical.

We realize that there have been a few moves and cancellations for

this mode recently, and I ask for understanding and cooperation.

Emergency use is always first priority, and AMSAT is happy to assist

in any way we can.

QO-100 – Temporary Emergency Frequency

In coordination with AMSAT-DL’s Peter Gulzow, the following QRG is _Temporarily_ allocated to Emergency Communications if required.

Downlink 10489.660 MHz (with 10kHz guardband)

Uplink 2400.160 MHz 

This only for this event and only if absolute necessity requires it.

The frequency will be available on a normal basis and if emergency traffic is identified as so, it will be given priority.


Amanhã serão conhecidas as frequências iniciais de trabalho em HF.
