The new NSR Seymour digital repeater is now up and running and working beyond expectations.
This will allow additional voice communication, but will also allow GPS tracking on the Turbo radios that are being distributed to team members as funding permits.
Over time, NSR will augment our analog repeater system with the digital system which will allow NSR search managers to track in real time, the location of NSR search teams. This will greatly improve safety and improve the effectiveness and efficiency of searches.
This project was completed in partnership with BC ambulance, Rogers, BC Parks Mount Seymour Resorts and Industry Canada. A big thank you to these organizations for making this possible!
