Norwegian Radio Relay Leage (NRRL) has established emergency communication service in various districts in Norway. NSOØ are in service for amateur radio based emergency communication in the Oslo region. We are in contact with the Norwegian joint search and rescue center, local authorities, the police and other voluntary organizations, Red Cross, Norwegian People’s Aid and Norwegian search and rescue dog association.
NSOØ contributes with VHF/UHF/HF communication for areas without mobile phone coverage or when the GSM service is unavailable. Another important service is APRS tracking, this aid has become very popular both within the other volunteer SAR-organisations and within the professional / govermental organisations.
In emergency situations we monitor relevant frequencies and our winlink (WL2K) account.
