    A little more common sense in the LOCAL legislature, and Florida I doubt will have the initial shooting at the rescue helicopters by looters problem....God Bless all of those in SW Florida, hold on tight.

    I feel they want you to listen via the internet to get ratings. I'm one who feels ham radio is about communicating via HF not the internet!

    Know the facts as you say... Well, K4AGO stated facts. He said "...captain during Katrina" and didn't need to specify who that was by name or nickname as you have. The death toll of 1800 is neither fact nor fiction---it is only an estimated total which may never be known (I've seen most estimates ranging from 1200 to 1800).

    Not to belabor things further along these lines but AGO really hit the nail on the head, in my opinion.

    Mother Nature doesn't play politics but people sure do. Since hams are people, too human nature tends to take over eventually.

    Who's "they"? Are you referring to the OP? You do realize you're complaining via the Internet on a ham radio website... about the Internet. :rolleyes:

    Change of subject - I've been monitoring the HWN on 40m. There is an individual interfering with the directed net. They're talking over net control, starting arguments (which no-one should be responding to), and using profanity. Basically being a jerk, which normally isn't an issue, but they are interfering with an emergency communication channel. What can be done?

    It is indeed and also about communicating on Linked VHF/UHF Repeaters as is done on ECHOLINK,IRLP,DMR,C4FM, DSTAR Systems.
    EMCOMMS will use every mode and system to provide assistance.
