DISASTER COMMUNICATION- VOLUNTARY CONTRIBUTION FOR BETTER MANAGEMENT Sqr.Ldr. A.K. Betole, communication & HAM Radio Specialised
Communication can basically be divided : W IRED C OMMUNICATION - L ANDLINE U NWIRED COMMUNICATION - W IRELESS /R ADIO F REQUENCY Under wireless communication presently available system VHF, UHF, HF, Satellite, Pager, Immersat, V-sat and others Radio and Television Others in development stage
DISASTER COMMUNICATION A communication system which can be used during post-disaster operation. VHF/UHF for short range communication network. HF Band can be used for long range communication network. Both are required for natural disaster, participants for which following steps are necessary : Frequency sanction
DISASTER COMMUNICATION Radio frequency survey Anticipatory planning for deployment Radio equipment and accessories Power source Skilled man-power/operator Disaster communication procedure Disaster communication centre Planned network working Action plan for winding up
However, as the NCDC suggests a voluntary contribution can be dove-tailed with utilization of HAM fraternity. The advantages are – Free frequency by International Telecommunication Union (ITU)/WPC GoI. HAM licence necessary for individual participant. Groups/Societies/Clubs HAM licence is possible by WPC, New Delhi
Planning for deployment of frequencies for short range communication. Planning for HF equipment for long range communication. Frequency planning for vehicle mobile and boat mobile Planning for accessories of all types of equipment
Provision of power/solar source Temporary permission by GoI, WPC, New Delhi for operation at disaster site. Close association and liaison of respective regions—HAM operators. Mock drill operation for practice at anticipated sites.
Proposal for amendment/sanction by GoI for use of dedicated wireless network. Minimum 4 frequencies in High-band VHF for 4-chennel simplex operation. Sanction of 2-pair of repeater frequencies for difficult terrain condition. The sanction should be free of cost for Licence fee and Royalty. This allotment should be for every District level (DDMA authority).
In case the dedicated frequencies are not agreed by the Govt, alternative measures for deployment of HAM frequencies. The voluntary force for HAM operation can be university, colleges, schools, NCC organizations and other such voluntary agencies. Training of all these agencies by NCDC. Record of data of all trained HAMs with DDMA of each district. Mock drill practice for deployment of HAM at expected hazard sites. Integration with Civil Defence Centres existing.
