    A 7.8 Magnitude earthquake hit Türkiye and Syria at 01:17UTC on 6th February leading to a large loss of life and many casualties. Aftershocks continue in the area with another large 7.5 magnitude event happening at 10:24UTC affecting the response. The emergency communications group of TRAC will be involved in the response activities, primarily expected to be on VHF/UHF but they do also use 3.777 and 7.092MHz as needed. Radio Amateurs are requested to give way to any emergency traffic around those frequencies.

    Thank you dear OM,

    As 3C3CA I was monitoring all the day the frequency.

    As originally TA2OM, I'm grateful to all OM's keeping the frequency clear for important, responsible announcements. Yes they were some people send CW on the fq or using only +2 to have QSO, it was clear readable also in Equatorial Guinea.

    We are very sad...

    Obviously this request needs to be honored. I would think, however, that to provide better coverage over the region that was impacted a different portion of the spectrum might work better.
