Ham Radio Fills Communication Gaps In Nepal Rescue Effort

Amateur radio has stepped in to fill communication gaps in Nepal, which is struggling with power outages and a flaky Internet after a devastating earthquake on Saturday killed over 5,000 people. Though 99 persons have ham licenses in Kathmandu, about eight use high-frequency (HF) radios that can transmit long distances, while another 30 have very high frequency (VHF) and ultra high frequency (UHF) sets for local traffic, said Satish Kharel, a lawyer in Kathmandu, who uses the ham call sign 9N1AA. The hobbyist radio operators are working round-the-clock to help people get in touch with relatives, pass on information and alert about developing crises.
