I'm an Internet activist working with Telecomix, a Europe-based group that works for free speech & an open Internet. We are currently providing comms support for protesters against the Mubarak dictatorship on the ground in Egypt - ways to evade Internet censorship, retweeting, IRC channels, medical advice, etc..
As communications conditions deteriorate (the city of Suez was completely cut off from the outside world tonight), we are exploring non-Internet modes of communication, including ham, shortwave and pirate radio. We need your help.
We are looking for radio operators who can reach Egypt (European, presumably), as well as technical advice and recruiting assistance. I will continue to monitor this forum, or you can join us on irc.telecomix.org (web client).

The first question is if there are ham operators in egypt who are willing to participate, and what setup they have, that is, on what bands they have antennas. With this information it will be easy to find ham operators in Europe etc who can communicate with them
