Save The Date: International SW Disaster Test

April 2, 2014 - Members of the shortwave listening community can pencil in their logbooks an extremely exciting upcoming date. On June 4-5, 2014, listeners can attempt to log an international test being organized by the High Frequency Coordination Commission of the International Radio for Disaster Relief project.

During these dates, the IRDR will be tested on the shortwave bands at the Media Summit on Climate Change, Information and Communication Technologies, and Disaster Risk Reduction in Jakarta, Indonesia.

The IRDR will simulate a major disaster occurring in Southeast Asia, and multiple international broadcasters will be cooperating to support coordinated humanitarian coverage for the impacted region.

Mr. Oldrich Cip of the HFCC graciously confirmed to ReliefAnalysis.com that the roster of broadcaster participants is being organized, and there could well be QSL opportunities for this historic occasion via those outlets.

Click here for a new Fact Sheet about the relevancy of shortwave broadcasting and the IRDR from the HFCC.

Click here my thoughts on how shortwave radio can cross the digital divide, literacy divide, and disaster divide. This piece recently ran on the web site of InterAction—a coalition of 300 international NGOs.

I’m going to be closely following this event as it gets closer. I’m very excited about what this test could mean for the evolution of humanitarian applications in the world of shortwave broadcasting.

If you’d like to receive additional updates, feel free to sign up for the Relief Analysis Radio newsletter in the box on the right—I’d be delighted to connect with you.
