Saturday, 25 June 2016 17:24

The Cyprus Forest Fires emergergency situation was yesterday declared over. Hence the CARS RV48 (R0) and RV58 (R5) repeaters are now clear for general use.

As a sum up of how the recent emergency events unfolded, Cyprus radio amateurs were active in emergency activities tackling the biggest forest fire the island has ever dealt with in the Solea region. Activity concentrated only on the VHF band, mainly the local RV48 (R0) and RV58 (R5) repeaters, as well as on APRS, supported from stations in Nicosia. Hams in and around Cyprus had been requested to keep clear of these repeaters to aid the emergency communications activity.
