Barrett Communications has joined us

We’re excited to have Barrett Communications join our growing list of Sponsors!

They have generously offered a High Frequency (HF) radio and accessories (Travelers Pack).  The radio will have the VKS-737 (four wheel drive) radio network programmed into it.  This will provide us with a method of communicating to the outside world when we are in the heart of Australia and no standard mobile phones work.

The VKS-737 network is run by volunteers who are available to answer an emergency call on the radio’s 24/7.  They also conduct regular radio “call in’s” to make sure everyone is ok and to provide weather and road condition updates.

Thank you so much for your support!
