We are a group of Radio Amateurs who are committed to providing Emergency Communications in time of disasters and emergencies when all else fails.
As members of The South African Radio League (SARL), it is our desire to provide efficient and accurate radio communications in the event of a natural disaster, emergency situation or when the lives, safety, welfare or property of the community are endangered; in line with Hamnet objectives.
WHEN ALL FAILS AMATEUR RADIO SUCCEEDS
Something has gone terribly wrong. Normal ways of doing things are not working. The fastest way to turn an emergency into a full disaster is to lose communications.
Radio Amateurs understand emergencies. For over 70 years they have provided emergency communications for organisations. When normal ways of communication fail or get overloaded Radio Amateurs will be there.
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.
