HAMNET Emergency Communications
 
 Welcome to the HAMNET Members Portal
 

HAMNET, 
the National Emergency Communications division of 
the South African Radio League (SARL)
provides communications for emergencies and 
can mobilise experienced communicators who 
with their own radio equipment will back up official channels or 
take over when all else fails.

COMMUNICATIONS SHOULD NOT END WITH HELP! HELP!

WHEN ALL ELSE FAILS AMATEUR RADIO WILL NOT.

 
Radio Hams have a full range of communication modes at their disposal. These include plain voice, Morse code, numerous digital computer modes and even graphical modes like television. A licensed radio amateur is able to join in experiments using all these modes.

The SARL represents all Radio Amateurs in South Africa at all levels of Government and through the IARU at the International Telecommunications Union. 

Radio Amateurs or "Hams" use two-way radio communication to make contact with other radio amateurs all over the world. 

They are even able to use satellites and on occasion speak with astronauts. Radio Hams can do this from home or while mobile in cars, boats or on foot.
