HSARC provides comms for doctors and nurses
Monument Health hospitals in Rapid City are suffering from a limited supply of masks, like many other hospitals across the country.
In an effort to conserve supplies, the hospital reached out to Rushmore Communications looking for some handheld radios so the doctors and nurses could exchange information without having to use masks.
Since the Hot Springs Amateur Radio Club had recently received a generous radio donation from Rushmore Communications, they asked if we had any radios left that could be loaned to the hospital to help fulfill their need.
The club was able to provide 6 handheld radios with good batteries, all fully programmed by Pete (WN6QJN). These radios along with those that Rushmore Communications had were enough to provide Monument Health with enough radio equipment to implement their communications plan.
