An article about a Search and Rescue caught my eye in todays Dominion Post. Of note the direct mention of 'Amateur Radio Emergency Corps' - the former name of the Amateur Radio Emergency Communications organisation, better known as AREC.
Looks like our compatriots in the Central North Island have been busy assisting Police and Land Search and Rescue folks achieve another successful result.
Very nice to see AREC getting a plug in the mainstream media, however, and we look forward to seeing more of it as Amateur Radio volunteers continue to make a difference in our community.
