Ham radio to the rescue (Nepal)
#1
As phone lines were jammed and the internet went down in Nepal after last April’s earthquake, the only way Manju Sunar could find out if her daughter was safe was to ask an amateur radio operator in France, where she worked, to contact another radio hobbyist in Nepal who then sent people out on motorbikes and found Sunar’s daughter safe.
