Saving Lives With Amateur Radio

Video:YouTube/M6 MGE

A video from Mike, M6MGE, which highlights a unique feature of Amateur Radio and radio communications in general, the ability to assist in an emergency and in this case quite possibly saving a young girls life.

The video is fairly self explanatory and worth watching right to the end. Mike took the emergency call via the GB3WR repeater located on the Mendip Hills in South West England, and proceeded to contact the emergency services. 

I personally think that Mike did a fantastic job here and to be honest I'm not sure that I could have been so calm and professional in such circumstances.

Very well done Mike you are a credit to the hobby!
