Mike Everett M6MGE became an emergency call handler after hearing a plea for help from a man camping on Exmoor.
A 12-year-old girl in the camping party was suffering from a severe epileptic fit and needed immediate medical help.
Where they were camping was so remote it had no mobile phone signal. But one of their party did have amateur radio equipment so sent out a distress call that was picked up by a transmitter on the Mendips, and then reached Mike’s house in Horfield.
