So far, the conditions in Haiti have been so dire that no ham operators have been broadcasting from that company. A few are trying, but failing. A few are trying to come in from the Dominican Republic and through the auspices of the government of Trinidad and Tobago. Ham emergency services have yet to swing into proper operation. However, there is an extensive network of hundreds of operators across the globe who are diligently working to connect to Haiti; monitoring the development of rescue operations, and coordinating requests in the search for lost friends and relatives, in conjunction with the Red Cross, the Army, etc. Logging ham radio is the quickest way to get the news as it develops. At 6:pm Thursday, I learned that the Catholic Archbishop of Haiti had been killed, and this news has yet to reach the networks. The following frequencies are what is available. The best way to monitor hams, however, is to find ham radio repeaters in your area, or to listen via computer (IRESC) as mentioned below.
