IHS Honduras Medical

International Health Service Needs Radio Operators

I just received this message from John Kirckof, KB0UUP, Director at IHS. They need radio ops. Call John at 320-634-4386 if you are interested. Here is good reading on what a trip to Honduras with IHS is like.


I just received an update from IHS board members on some of the shortages for the upcoming mission trips. As an IHS supporter, we are very hopeful that joining us will work for you.

Our important need in February.... We need your help as we are in critical need of radio operators ! We can also use docs, pharmacists, nurses plus 1 or 2 NPs or PAs. This includes RNs, LPNs, Paramedics, EMTs, CNAs, etc. . At this point we do need a few more support people but we are working on that, too.

Note... we are already signing up folks for the February trip now as we have quite a few openings.

Also note... Whether this mission trip works for you or not, do talk with others about our need for ham operators plus medical and support people. That is the best way we have to get new folks to join us and to get financial support.

Thanks for any help you can give in support of the very poor of Honduras.

By Gordon Murray, VE3JSJ

For most of my life, two of my interests have been back-country canoeing and camping, and Amateur Radio. I often combined these two activities, carrying QRP radios on canoe trips. Starting off with the Heathkit HW 8, then the Argonaut 509, followed by the SCG2020, and now the Yaesu FT-817ND (or Elecraft KX3 if weight is not too important). The last three years I have added PACTOR capabiity--without too much weight penalty using a small 8” Win8 Tablet, and an end-fed resonant antenna covering 40m, 20m & 10m. No need for an antenna tuner.
