Who are we?

Austravel Safetynet is the premier high frequency (HF) radio network in Australia.  Our technology is unsurpassed by any other provider giving our members the safety and social contact with friends, family and emergency services throughout the continent at any time of the day.

Becoming a member provides GPS derived positions, telephone interfaces, regular scheduled contacts, 5 state of the art bases, wide range of frequencies, SMS and simple emergency calling and access via a smartphone app (extra cost).

The Codan and Barrett "red button" is back integrated with Telcall+ and Out-n-About

So we all know that our loved emergency red button on our HF Radios is no longer monitored by the RFDS.

BUT, never fear, Austravel Safetynet has resurected the beloved button meaning that anyone in your travelling party can contact emergency respondents.

But how does it work?  It's not magic, BUT, you do need to need to be a member and have your radio programmed appropriately.

Telcall+ is here

Telcall+ development has been completed and is currently in operation at all of our bases.
