I'm still waiting for even approximate contact data for scyllacat, and any others who are missing, to forward to the National Traffic System. In the meanwhile, dispatches from the American Radio Relay League lead me to suspect that the Salvation Army Team Emergency Radio Network (SATERN) has good coverage in the area. They have one high frequency (HF) (e.g. "long range" for the non-Hams) radio net dedicated exclusively to Health & Welfare traffic, inbound and outbound. According to this ARRL press release:

The SATERN International net is also active on 14.265 MHz to support health-and-welfare traffic and inquiries, and [Hurrican Watch Network Manager Mike] Pilgrim [K5MP] referred all such communications to that net.

If you have an HF scanner, you don't have to be a ham to listen in to the net.

greets ... I saw mention of you and ham radio in elorie's LJ.

I posted SATERN a little while ago. (Years ago I was regularly active on the maritime-mobile 20mtr net, while in Halifax NS)

BTW, "Hurricane Katrina Volunteer Signup Database Now Open"

Shira -- you mentioned having some local to D.C. folks you were trying to call. If you send me the numbers I can do so.

(Pete - Shira's in Turkey, so further out of the communications loop than many are)
