Topic - Mountain Rescue and Mobile Phones

mypyrex - on 14 Jan 2013
I've been looking at incidents involving MRT call out where people have been lost or stuck on difficult terrain and have called for assistance on their mobiles. I can't help thinking how things were before the advent of mobiles, esp the modern small ones(20 odd years ago) People would very often have had to get themselves out of trouble - unless of course there was a serious injury. Just wonder if we're getting too reliant on mobiles.
