HK       - Twenty years ago, on 13 November  1985, an explosive eruption  from
           Nevado del Ruiz's  summit crater  produced a  huge and  devastating
           avalanche of mud and rock that  swept away the  town of Armero  and
           killed almost 25,000  people. Given the  poor communication of  the
           time and the lack of coordination between rescue teams,  assistance
           from radio amateurs was  paramount in directing  aid in the  rescue
           efforts and bringing in the  much-needed resources. To  commemorate
           that tragedy and honour the amateur radio operators who gave  their
           help, special callsign 5K20A will be aired from the Armero-Guayabal
           disaster site on 10-14 November. QSL via HK3SGP. [TNX F8REF]
