Hi Fellow ham radio operators - The Dominica amateur radio operators were put out of operation by hurricane Maria. We have been helping get them back into operation. We really need more HF radios as 90% of the island is still without power and it will be months or perhaps year or more for some parts of the island are restored.

Any of you that can contribute an HF radio please contact me at http://fairs.org fully tax deductible. David KK4WW at N4USA

Statement- Needs Analysis

September’s Hurricane Maria hit the island of Dominica with unbelievable force, destroying homes and vegetation, claiming lives and vital infrastructure. The island’s amateur radio operators have been “on the air” using handheld radios which are solar-powered. This has been a vital link for communication with the outside world, since power and other utility services have been disrupted. Members of Dominica Amateur Radio Club, Inc., which is supported by FAIRS, have been conducting assessments and helping with coordination of relief.

Project Overview

Hurricane Maria was a major setback for Dominica and for the network which provides services during disaster. Three of the four mountaintop repeaters were rendered inoperable by wind or water damage, and many operators lost radios/equipment during the storm. Power which was lost will not be restored in many areas for months, so solar power must be relied upon. By supporting the “Angels of Eden” group which works with the local hams, we have been able to send by private plane numerous hf radio, handhelds, solar power kits and a cross-band repeater. Much more is needed to restore and improve emergency communications systems. FAIRS has also sent humanitarian aid by gifts of cash, and medical and food supplies.

It is our desire to equip licensed operators with resources and solar power for replacement radios. Almost all have sustained major damage to their homes and some homes were completely destroyed. It is our hope to provide some assistance to these people in rebuilding.

Here is a wonderful video of the disaster if you have the time to view.
