Anonymous and quiet heroes are helping those desperate migrants arriving to Italian coast at the present time, in the worst
humanitarian tragedy ever seen in the mare nostrum.
Among those volunteers, there are a lot of members of the Palermo section of
an EURAO member association.
Their job is about assisting people coming from different countries and circumstances: poverty, hunger, wars, etc.;
who are looking for a new life.
Radio amateurs (hams), usually dealing with individuals world wide, without distinction of race, sex or religious beliefs,
perform this work without expecting anything in return, with no noise, receiving with an smile those who have been about to lose everything,
Where governments fail, come the citizens and their organizations, working together for mankind.
Thank you guys for the lesson and congratulations!

Tertúlia Radioamadorística Guglielmo Marconi, CS5TRGM, one of our member clubs in Portugal,
had last month its convivial day, that they held once every spring, for 8 years.
This is a good opportunity for socializing, radio amateurs and their families, around picnic table;
also testing antennas and equipment, specially the 4m transverters (70MHz-28MHz) just build the last weeks;
and, of course, exchanging ideas.
Here you will find some pictures of this nice meeting.
