The Codan and Barrett HF radio "Red-Button" is back, by integration with Telcall+ and Out-n-About phone app

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 operate the HF radio, simply by one press of one button on a Codan or two buttons together on a Barrett to make direct voice contact with an emergency help responder.  (No radio operation knoweledge required.)

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.
