New Brunswick Amateur Radio operators proved they were ready to get the message through “when all else fails” during the recent telephone outage.

On Friday August 4, 2017, Bell and other telephone carriers experienced a widespread failure of the telephone network in Atlantic Canada. Service was interrupted to many cellular and landline telephone customers and to many mobile radio services, including portions of the trunked mobile radio system (TMR) used by Ambulance New Brunswick and other public services.
