GOHSEP Region 4 HF Linkup Frequencies

This document establishes in advance a list of HF frequencies that hams in GOHSEP Region 4 can use to communicate with each other during emergencies.  The Lafayette OHSEP will also use these frequencies to pass information to hams that have evacuated from other affected areas around Region 4.

GOHSEP Region 4 VHF/UHF EMCOMM Channel List   (PDF)  (XLS)  (CSV)

The files found at the links above were created to provide area hams with a list of repeaters and
auxiliary frequencies that can be referred to by a common "channel number" or "channel name". 
Although the list focuses primarily on GOHSEP Region 4, it includes repeaters in other areas of the
state that operators may wish to monitor if they are in those areas during emergency situations. 
Repeater settings change over time so please confirm they are correct if you get a chance to visit
various locations.  Please report any necessary revisions to
