Alpha 338

Our neighbor and friend Karan is a translator from New Zealand. The people she works with are in a remote village so she takes a plane to one point and then travels by boat the rest of the way.   Her support team is gone on furlough so she asked us to fill in while she is in the village for  a month.  One way that we can offer support is by connecting with her by radio.  Our call sign is A338.  The radio is her only means of  contact with the outside world while she is in the village.  Three times a week all translators are required to attend roll call by radio.  The radio operator checks in with each one to make sure all is well.
