San Bernardino Search & Rescue

KPRA would also like to welcome the San Bernardino Search & Rescue to the repeater. In accordance with Public Safety, the SAR group will be utilizing the repeater to communicate while searching for people in the rough terrain and difficult areas that have communication restrictions. They have found that the Keller Peak Repeater covers a vast area and makes communication possible in the hard to reach areas. The SAR folks are also conducting classes for VEC testing for their officers. They currently have approximately 40 licensed personnel on the force.

On the lighter side, we also have...
