Linked Ham Radio Repeater System Instrumental in Hiker Rescue

A hiker in distress in Nevada is thankful that he had his hand-held transceiver along when he found himself stranded in the hills near Henderson. Western Intertie Network (WIN http://www.winsystem.org/) System member Jim Frederick, KF6QBW, in Arizona reports he was monitoring the system November 3 around midday when he heard, “Mayday, Mayday. Hiker in distress!” from his WIN System repeater.

    I’ve carried my handheld many times, thankfully I’ve never needed it. But, it’s fun to use when on the trail.
