BCBRA's President Mr. Randy Chandler has taken the initiative, seeking a much needed exemption from the Barbados hands free driving traffic act. The exemption he seeks will assist The BCBRA and Amateur Radio Operators, with providing uninterrupted real time emergency radio communication support, in times of hurricanes, other disasters and emergencies.
It should be noted, that all Emergency Radio Communication Support Teams and Amateur Radio Operators worldwide, are all exempt from any hands free traffic act.
The Barbados Ham Radio Club fully supports the BCBRA's efforts. We do hope that the importance of this amendment we seek is granted, for the provision and continuous safety and life saving measures these, support teams provide.
