Sounds like the next few weekends QSO parties will need to shift up or down on 40. Hopefully, they will not experience any repeat quakes.

>From ARRL website:

Emergency Frequencies Declared for Italian Earthquake (Apr 6, 2009) -- An earthquake that registered between 5.8 and 6.3 magnitude struck L'Aquila, the capital of Italy's Abruzzo region, about 65 miles northeast of Rome, early Monday morning. News reports say the quake has killed more than 90 people, with at least 50,000 left homeless. According to cluster spots, 7045 and 3640 kHz are being used as emergency frequencies, so please keep these frequencies clear.
