Repeaters are not just there for the use of radio hams to pass the time of day,they do provide a service that sometimes can help the general public.In the late summer of 2017 WR was used to summon emergency medical help to a young lady called May.You can read her story of that day on our blog page, August 2017.
We were so touched by this that we have made May our official mascot!!
