+ - Ham Radio Used for Emergency Call->

Submitted by radicalbiscuit
radicalbiscuit (1429445) writes "Following a truck accident in a remote part of northern Utah without cell phone coverage, this fearless operator called for help with nothing but his trusty hand-held ham radio by his side. Another ham picked up the request for help and called it into the authorities. Just goes to show that demands for stability and coverage in communications can outweigh the growing need to listen to U2 on your phone."
