WELCOME TO GEM!
GEM is short for GLOBAL EMERGENCY COMMUNICATIONS. GEM is a worldwide network of volunteers that joins conventional amateur radio transmitting equipment to the Internet with the aim of setting up contact between disaster areas and sources of relief and assistance.
GEM has members in many countries. This means that the network can be permanently operating, regardless of time zone. There are more than three million Radio Amateurs in the world, meaning that someone with radio equipment will nearly always be within range of a disaster area. And through use of the Internet to span the globe, GEM can provide communication paths that do not rely on the variations in radio wave propagation.
GEM aims to set up links in the early period after a disaster has struck. It is well known that amateur radio is often the first and only way that situation reports can be gathered in the very early stages of a rescue mission. The GEM team will use any method or technology to establish communications, including HF, VHF and UHF radio, amateur satellites, and VoIP communications.
Governed by its Charter, GEM’s objectives are to foster efficient collaboration between Radio Amateurs, extending friendships across the world and providing international emergency communications in times of need.
We are always looking for new members in any part of the world. GEM is willing to collaborate with all emergency communicators and relief agencies to provide support and communications during any disaster. Being a truly international organisation, GEM strongly adheres to the principals that bind together the world Amateur Radio movement; working together regardless of race, religion, culture or political viewpoint. Please join us, and give a little of your time and facilities back to those in need.
