Following the magnitude 6.2 earthquake which struck central Italy on 24 August killing 38 people, Italian radio amateurs are active in the emergency response.

Please keep 7060 kHz clear along with other Emergency Centre of Activity frequencies in the 80m and 40m bands for emergency communications within Italy.

No external assistance is required at this time. The Italian radio amateur groups are following their planned response with their government. Any requests for information on missing persons should be made via the Red Cross or other recognised relief organisations.
