DO1FRK und DG4OAE zum "Fachberater Amateurfunk" ernannt

DARC - Wed, 20/03/2019 - 11:21

Frank Brinkmann, DO1FRK, sowie Andreas Kleiner, DG4OAE, wurden durch die Region Hannover zum "Fachberater Amateurfunk" im Katastrophenschutz der Region Hannover ernannt. Damit werden beide zukünftig dem Krisenstab der Region bei Fragen zum Thema Amateurfunk und dessen Nutzung im Katastrophenfall zur Verfügung stehen.

Das der Notfunk im Amateurfunk auch im Innenministerium des Landes Niedersachsen einen hohen Stellenwert geniesst, zeigt ein Schreiben von Anfang März an den Distrikts-Notfunkreferenten Frank Brinkmann, DO1FRK. In diesem bedankt sich das Ministerium im Auftrag des Ministers Pistorius bei allen Mitgliedern des DARC e.V. für das langjährige Engagement der Funkamateure zur Unterstützung bei Katastrophenlagen.

Auch in Zukunft freut sich das Ministerium über die Unterstützung durch Funkamateure, begrüsst diese Ausdrücklich und wird unseren Wunsch nach besserer Einbindung auch an die Behörden und Organisationen vor Ort weiter geben. An dem Erlass aus dem Jahre 1981, in welchem das Angebot der Zusammenarbeit der Funkamateure mit dem Katastrophenschutz in Niedersachsen angenommen wird hält das Ministerium auch weiterhin fest.

Punto di vista:Essere Radioamatore vale ancora qualcosa?

CISAR - Wed, 20/03/2019 - 04:38


PUNTO DI VISTA

"Essere Radioamatore vale ancora qualcosa?"

"La domanda sorge spontanea ", chi non ricorda la famosa quanto celebre frase del giornalista Antonio Lubrano con la quale egli poneva gli interrogativi su vari argomenti di cui cercare risposte? Penso che oggi anche la nostra categoria di persone, al di là delle bandiere associative, si debba porre con la stessa  certosina ricerca della risposta la seguente domanda: essere Radioamatore vale ancora qualcosa? La R grande non è un errore di scrittura, ma al di là del significato e peso letterale della parola, dovrebbe stare a mio giudizio per Ricordare (e anche qui la metto grande apposta) che lo stato italiano riconosce l'importanza di questa figura attraverso il riconoscimento del Servizio di Radioamatore, e identifica l'attività per definizione  con art. 134, comma 1:
