Radio Volunteers Help Pilots in Trouble:

A great story of assistance to those needing to contact families while airborne.

I guess, though, in the examples of aircraft operating maladies, one could question where the active duty AF HF ground stations are. If for nothing else, they can and do operate at many-fold the power levels permitted for civilian members.

At least this isn't making intercom links for TSA at airports as Army MARS does.
