AIR Chennai running on Generators now

Information from AIR Chennai is that their Home Service channels
720, 783, 1017 & 4920 are now running on Diesel Generators due to interruption of normal power supply cut due to cyclone Nilam which is hitting the area now.

The 100 kW SW tx on 7270 used for External Service to Sri Lanka is off air as no generator is available for it.

According to reports from Amateur Radio friends in Chennai, normal power supply has been interrupted in Chennai city due to cyclone.


The AIR Burmese Service noted on 15045 via Delhi at 1215 to 1315 for many weeks now has changed to their normal channel of 15040 from today.

Yours sincerely,
