Japanese Earthquake

following information received from Ken Yamamoto JA1CJP of JARL 
these frequencies are known to be in use for the response to the 
Japanese earthquake.

7043 kHz SSB controled by JR3QHQ the Osaka branch manager of JARL He is 
gathering incident information on radio and forwarding this information 
onto the internet.

7075 kHz SSB is operated by JL3YSP in Wakayama occasionally.

7030 kHz which is the JARL emergency communication frequency in their 
bandplan is in use by JA7RL (JARL regional HQ station).

The last frequency is particularly QRP relevant. There are obviously 
propagation factors which would limit their range but would all amateurs 
please make every effort to avoid interfering with emergency 
communications on these frequencies.

Thanks & 73,
Greg, G0DUB
IARU Region 1 Emergency Communications Co-Ordinator
