    The Yellowstone Radio Club and YARES. ( Yellowstone Amateur Radio Emergency Services ) received Montana wide Media coverage during a planned emergency siren test for the county of Yellowstone in Montana. They were covered by two local TV stations and a local newspaper, the Billings Gazette. This coverage has people talking about ham radio and rethinking the hobby. They are realizing how amateur radio is much more that just talking on the radio. It is committed to emergency services and volunteers in order to keep our communities safe during any emergencies that could arise. There are two videos from the news stations clips that can be viewed on the Yellowstone Radio Club web site. http://www.k7efa.net The Yellowstone Radio club is to be congratulated on all their community efforts.

    If the huge supervolcano underneath Yellowstone NP (and well beyond its borders) ever blows communications anywhere within 100 miles will be the least of anyone's worries and will be meaningless. If it erupts as it did 645,000 years ago (some "experts" say it is overdue) life in the USA and indeed the world will be much different than we know it now. Millions dead is the conservative prediction.

    Yes, here in Canada there are a *lot* of places with "roads" which have absolutely no cell coverage, but have some repeater coverage in some areas. That is why many of our 4x4 clubs have moved to holding classes for licensing to get their members into the amateur service. Only some have gone beyond into aspects other than VHF and repeaters, but it still supports the hobby in terms of numbers.
