      "They were driving in separate vehicles near Poverty Mountain in the Arizona Strip south of St. George Saturday when they were flagged down by another motorist who asked if they had a satellite phone. The man said a woman had been injured, and cell phones didn’t work in that area. Whiting, who is a ham radio operator (his call sign is K12U) said he could radio for help from his truck. He was able to contact another ham operator, Ralph Magee (call sign N6LRG) who lives in the Cane Breaks area 50 miles from their location. Magee called 911, and a helicopter from the Arizona Department of Public Safety’s Kingman Rangers was dispatched."
