MH370: Ham radio operators’ help requested

The Malaysian Amateur Radio Emergency Service Society (MARES/9M4CME) is calling all ham radios particularly from India, Indonesia, Sri Lanka, Mauritius, Seychelles, Thailand to participate in the search and rescue of the missing aircraft, Malaysia Airlines Boeing 777-200ER bearing registration 9M-MRO flight MH370.

maresThe flight has gone missing from ATC radar at 1.21am local time 8 March 2014. SAR was initially done withing the vicinity of South China Sea. However, new confirmed evidence revealed yesterday has shifted the SAR activities in the vicinity of Malacca Strait, Andaman Sea, Bay of Bengal and the Indian Ocean. This ia a huge area to cover roughly 21,000 sq km. To date, SAR efforts have combined assets from at least 14 countries involving more than 50 aircrafts and 30 vessels making it the single largest SAR mission ever.

In light with the multinational effort taken and also so many rumours of the plane crashing or landing in islands within the SAR area, MARES is calling all ham stations, especially those from the countries within the search area, to participate in a daily reporting session. The objective is for ham stations to provide any sightings, info or evidence that might help the authorities to find the missing MH370. Details are as follows:

Daily Check-in and reporting session will be done at UTC1300hrs – 1500hrs at 14.250 MHz and 21.250 MHz (+- QRM)

Any urgent message beyond the specified DX session time shall be communicated via email to emergency@mares.org.my

All information and evidence obtained will be forwarded to the Malaysian Department of Civil Aviation and Malaysian National Security Council by MARES.

On behalf of Malaysia, MARES would like to thank in advance all participating stations for their time and effort in helping us to find the missing 9M-MRO / MH370. Let us all do our bit in this moment of crisis.

Please do spread this effort to stations and clubs you think might be helpful in our effort.

Thank you, 73
