On Saturday, July 27, 2019 Radio Club of Chile, through its Radio Amateur Emergency Service together with the Amateur Radio Circle of the Army Telecommunications School, set a test in the field, to evaluate response capabilities in case of Emergency. They did install stations Emergency communications and test transmissions in HF, VHF, UHF with its repeaters and Digital voice systems in DMR, managing to communicate with more than a hundred stations.
It should be remembered that Chile is one of the countries in the world where the role of radio amateurs who have already demonstrated their good work during earthquakes and other emergency situations, is most valued; nevertheless the emergency practice can be exported in Antarctica as well where the situation is sometimes worse than in the Continent!
Being an Antarctic veteran, Mario Reyne CE3BFE was among the team!
