Looking for Advice on Rescue Communication 26-Aug-2012 At 6:49:30 PM jgoding

I'm considering investing in some communication gear and looking for some advice (from someone who actually knows a thing or two about the subject - if you don't please don't offer a misguided, unhelpful opinion here).

I am looking for advice ideally from someone in emergency services (Paramedic) or first responder who has had experience in communicating with injured people in remote areas.

Use: Both within Australia (mainly Grampians, but many other remote areas without regular phone coverage - i.e. Tassie, Blue Mtns) but also overseas to assist in the unlikely event of a rock climbing or bush walking accident needing emergency assistance (i.e. helicopter rescue or stretcher evac).

Main options I am considering include:
1) SAT Phone
2) UHF Radio
3) EPIRB (new style with GPS so more accurate location).

Any words of wisdom? Links to useful forums? People I could talk to?

Thanks in advance,
