Bay-Net Partners with CAN-USA to Build Radio Mala, Providing Emergency Communications Infrastructure to Nepal

Science and history tell us that an 8.0 Richter scale earthquake strikes Kathmandu roughly every 75 years, it has been 79 years since the last one. Casualties are expected to be in the hundreds of thousands in Kathmandu alone. Over a million people are expected to be displaced. The ability to communicate effectively in the immediate aftermath of a disaster saves lives. Nepal does not have a robust disaster telecommunications system. Nepal does not have ham radio infrastructure broadly available to the public. For years, CAN-USA has been working with world-renowned experts to help Nepal develop a viable disaster telecommunication system.

Ham radio has repeatedly shown its life-saving nature following massive disasters. CAN-USA seeks to develop, install, and make fully operational a network of ham radio stations around Kathmandu and Nepal. This network will be broadly available to the public. World-class institutions will be involved in developing, erecting, and utilizing this network to advance the long-term training of Nepalis in the use of ham radio for disaster communications. Partners include: The Computer Association of Nepal, Institute of Engineering at Tribhuvan University, Bay-Net, and the America Nepal Medical Foundation.                            More Info
