    It's on cnn, does anyone watch that junk reporting anymore? Good thing you summarized it, sounds like it was over hyped a bit and please give the 'basher' crap
    a rest.

    Speaking from firsthand experience as a Florida resident, career firefighter and paramedic amateur radio is a invaluable resource in a emergency. I've been in every major hurricane to impact Florida since Andrew frequently stationed at emergency shelters. In several instances amateur radio was the only reliable mode of communication when other systems failed.

    Indeed. Discussing and defending "emcomm" like it's a faith only detracts from the discussion.

    Thanks for posting yet ANOTHER article showing that the community of volunteer ham radio communicators who operate independent of commercial infrastructure, are proving to be very helpful.

    Well Done & 73 de Ray ..._ ._

    You're an EMCOMM-basher, and don't deny it.

    It would be appropriate for the FCC to again issue station licenses to military installations [Regular and state national guard] as the commission did back in the 1950s and 60s. Allow military personnel trained in radio communications to operate on amateur radio frequencies during an emergency or in the aftermath of such disaster to pass 'health and welfare' traffic when other modes of telecommunications are non-functional.
