Dear friends and colleagues:

As you know, a devastating earthquake has hit West Java Province of
Indonesia. We have been sharing information about the situation of community
radio stations in this list. According to the latest reports more than 5,000
houses and hundreds school buildings have been severely damaged, and more
than 270,000 people are compelled to live as refugees.

As reported earlier, a number of community radio stations have been damaged
too. As West Java gradually recovers from the initial shocks and comes
together to rebuild, its vitally important to get the damaged and out of
operation community radio stations up and running again so that the huge
information gap can be filled in. The sub-district (local government) of
Java province has requested community radio stations of that area to support
relief work by acting as emergency radio service. AMARC members in the
affected region have identified a number of equipment and technical support
that is urgently needed. The list of the most essential equipment include
transmitters, computers, UPS, microphones, headsets, power-supply units,
radio receivers, and mixers.

I would like to request you to extend support to our friends in Java in
whatever way you can - spare equipment and/or monetary support are welcome.

The Association of Community Radio Broadcasters of Indonesia (JRKI -
Jaringan Radio Komunitas Indonesia) has appointed the following as contact
persons. Please feel free to write to them to receive the complete list of
equipment as well as for guidance on how and where to send your support.
