The recent deaths of Aboriginal groups travelling between remote communities has prompted an investigation into the cause of these deaths. One of the main reasons for the deaths was the failure or non-existence of communications systems so that the movement of the people was not known and rescue efforts were late to start. In an age of rapidly improving communication systems, the needs of remote areas are still being neglected. This paper discusses the options available and the problems with existing systems. A proposal is developed for a remote network.
