As we all know, there was no "FORCE OF 50". There were, a couple of dozen dedicated hams that sacrificed their time and effort to assist (by going to Puerto Rico) in ECOMMS in PR, and their individual efforts are to be highly applauded and grateful thanks appropriately extended. But the REAL issue is leveraging the IN-PLACE capabilities of EXISTING radio amateurs in THEIR communities. A STELLAR example of that was KK4DCX's remarkable effort in San German Puerto Rico, after Maria. IMPORTING HAMS should be a last resort. TRAINING AND ENABLING HAMS IN-PLACE is the proper and vastly preferred means.
