APRS Group Message Callout Alerts

Posted on Posted in Uncategorized

As many of you know, communications between our dispatchers and teams are absolutely imperative. For this reason, our organization continues to embrace and implement amateur radio (ham) in every area which it can help our cause. 
Our newest implementation, APRS Group Messages for Recovery Callouts is now active. The biggest benefit to this is that if you are out of cell service in the mountains but have your APRS running, you can receive notification of a callout. Who knows, you may be right up the road! 
If you are a member, or volunteer for us please contact us for information about setting up your aprs capable radio to receive these messages. 
If you are not Ham licensed, please reach out for help getting set up. It is the most valuable tool in our rigs. You never know when it could save a life.
