I was dozing* during the commute, so I almost missed this news item on KNX - 1070, the most listened-to (or snoozed-to) AM radio station in Southern California. #
The gist of it was that volunteer ham radio operators in Florida have been filling the communications gap in a praiseworthy fashion as cellular phones and other communications systems have failed during the current weather disaster. #Completely positive, a well-deserved pat on the back for those who've devoted their time, and a super plug for ham radio in general.
In the background was a hint of Morse code beeps . . . maybe so listeners would know it was really ham radio operators they were talking about.
*No, it wasn't my day to drive for the carpool.
