"This is Alpha 338"

The radio is a great tool, used here to communicate with translation teams
out in their villages. Often cell phone reception is not good or not
accessible at all for those teams back in the bush.

Here Doug is talking with Nafian (the man pictured a few blogs ago). "This
is Alpha 338. Nafian yu stap?" Unfortunately on this occasion, Nafian was
having troubles with his batteries on his radio, so he could hear Doug, but
Doug had a hard time hearing him. We hope to see Nafian again in a few
weeks, when he and a few other men from his team come to Ukarumpa for a
Hebrew class.
