Before you read on remember that this was not to start a bashing
session about code/no code or NCT/Advanced/Extra classes. This is to
INFORM PEOPLE that emegency help is out there and if you need it use
it at will. Please Try to stay on topic as it was said before,
INFORMATION PURPOSES ONLY!!!
Amateur Radio International Communications Coalition (ARICC) and
The Missing Lynk Global Repeater System,(MISSLYNK, EchoLink
Conference) have formed a strategic communications alliance.
ARICC provides Health and Welfare communications in time of Disaster
on EchoLink and various RF systems and is a recognized international
communications group. The Missing Lynk Global Repeater System has
grown internationally with their conference server reaching HAMS
world wide with their links and weekly nets.
The groups both utilize the K1RFD EchoLink System and RF,
encompassing not only HF but repeaters all over the world. In
association with these groups also is N1TAI's HF link which is only
active when there is an emergency call up or an activation of ARICC
in concert with other RF, EchoLink, VOiP systems, Federal, Local and
EMCOMM activations. The alliance has increased the reach of Amateur
Operations for ARICC by adding more repeaters and conferences world
wide therefore adding more expansive coverage of message handling for
all the emergency net services.
The Missing Lynk Global Repeater System and its users along with
ARICC and its members provide a much needed segment to the Amateur
Radio Emergency Communications arena. If you need more information
on either of these groups you can check out their websites.
P.S. This is not meant to be a heated argument, just to inform folks
that if they have an Emergency they can count on The ARICC and The
Missing Lynk System!
