Of course I willl keep these frequencies clear, but I dont understand
why they have choosen these frequencies.
The emergency centre of activities of IARU Region 1 are 3760 and 7110.
Before March 29, the 40m frequency was 7060.
Now 7040-7060 is allocated for digital modes.
As not everybody is reading internet sources how can they know where
the traffic is going on this time?
