Hams Help in Search for Missing Teen

Ham radio operators played a major role in an ultimately successful search July 29 for a 13-year old Pennsylvania boy with autism. More than two dozen hams were among the many professional and volunteer searchers, according to the ARRL Letter, serving as team leaders and providing "solid communication" among searchers. After about six hours, the young man was found safe and reunited with his family in Sinking Spring, Pennsylvania, about halfway between Philadelphia and Harrisburg.
