Nationwide Emergency Amateur Radio Communications
Nationwide Emergency Amateur Radio Communications
After many natural disasters, mostly cause by weather conditions, specifically hurricanes, the islands have serious concerns getting information around the islands and out to regional islands and international countries. We have currently identified three (3) sites for location on St. Kitts and two (2) sites on the island of Nevis. These location we believe will provide us with the best opportunity for total island wide coverage if needs be during and after the passage of a destructive storm or severe weather conditions.
