Amateur radio operators have always had a vocation to help anyone in distress within their means, so they're happy to take on their role of assistance in the field they know best: message transmission.
As technology evolves, telecoms become increasingly efficient and sophisticated, but also vulnerable. This has been proven time and again: the simplest systems are also the most reliable.
Amateur radio operators, by virtue of their everyday hobbies, have a wealth of technical and operating experience that can prove useful to the various authorities in charge of crisis management.
Their aim is not to replace what the commercial sector does very well every day (and our licenses do not allow us to replace the commercial sector), but rather to offer a more rustic and resilient alternative that can be used only on demand. This also presupposes that we are trained and organized.
We go beyond the role of simple users by mastering technical skills, enabling us to facilitate radio links in collaboration with a network of amateur radio operators.
This network operates completely autonomously, with no dependence on fixed infrastructures. Our volunteers, using frequencies reserved for amateur radio operators, take full charge of the information to be transmitted, from end to end.
Thanks to preliminary exercises, we try to anticipate geographical obstacles and integrate optimally with the players on the ground.
