The Australian Volunteer Coast Guard is responsible for monitoring and patrolling over 2500km of the vast Australian coastline. Each year they perform thousands of rescue operations, often in hard-to-reach islands and beaches, as well as crucial search and rescue functions. Since installing an Omnitronics DX-Altus Radio Management System, the orgainzation has been able to significantly simplify its operations, even across remote bases. The biggest advantage however, was that it allowed them to consolidate its once 19″ radio stand-by-bases in the living rooms of after hours personnel, to state of the art setups with only a laptop and microphone. This important upgrade has made it simple for its teams – both at the main Communications Centre and at home alike – to support the important work the organisation is dedicated to.
