Christchurch Section AREC
(Amatuer Radio Emergency Communications)

The Christchurch Section of AREC is very active in Civil Defence, Search and Rescue, and sporting safety communications in the Canterbury area.

We have two specialised communications vehicles to support the communications systems that we provide for Search and Rescue and Civil Defence. These have been funded from providing safety communications and support for various sporting events in the region.

We are a part of the Christchurch Amateur Radio Club.

Here are some pages with some more details of what we are involved in:-

We are making use of APRS (Automatic Position Reporting System) in sporting events, and looking to use it more for SAR and CD as well.
