An Amateur Radio net has been activated in the aftermath of a magnitude 6.9 earthquake early this morning (June 14) some 10 kilometers from Malacatán.
According to information relayed by Dani Ardon, TG9AMD, of the Radio Amateurs Club of Guatemala (CRAG), “At the moment, neither major damage nor reports of any victims have been reported.” Ardon said the net has been monitoring 7.090 MHz as well as the 146.88 MHz CRAG Network frequency.
Stations in Panama, Nicaragua, El Salvador, and Honduras are reported to be ready to provide any needed assistance.
The US Geological Survey (USGS) points out that Central America is “very seismically active.” The USGS said the earthquake “occurred as the result of normal faulting at an intermediate depth, approximately 100 km beneath the surface of coastal Guatemala.” — Thanks to César Pio Santos, HR2P, EMCOR Region 2; USGS
