IARU Emergency Telecommunications Guide Now Available in Multiple Languages

The International Amateur Radio Union's Emergency Telecommunications Guide is now available in four languages, English, Spanish, Portuguese and Romanian. The 94-page guide, originally published only in English, is designed to provide materials for amateurs participating in emergency and public service activities as well as guidance for individual hams in improving their EmComm skills, according to Southgate Amateur Radio News. It is hoped that translators will step up to provide editions in additional languages as well.
