April 24, 2023…

Bill Carroll, KC9CIK – Bill has been a ham since 2002. His interests have been to participate in community service events communications and emergency communications. Bill has participated in bike events for Multiple Sclerosis, Lupus, Cancer, Ronald McDonald House, St. Louis Marathon, and the Hospital Amateur Radio Network in the St. Louis area. His interest in EMCOMM has led Bill to obtain multiple FEMA and EMCOMM certifications. Bill first learned about what3words addresses a couple of years ago and saw the possible applications in the HAM radio community and has been following its progress.

From the what3words website: “what3words is a global addressing system used in over 170 countries by thousands of businesses as well as governments and NGOs. It is available in over 50 languages and applied across industries from automotive to logistics, travel, emergency services and disaster response.” Let’s discuss how w3w can have a positive effect on amateur radio.
