Radio operators ‘vital’ to emergency response

Living in Florida we all talk about being prepared, we have special nets for hurricanes, we have gear that is ready for the storms. There is only so much you could be ready for, but we do our best. Florida Ham take the responsibility serious and it’s great to see it recognized by the local news:

 

Sun City Center, Florida — They’re some of the most critical people for a hurricane response, but you may be surprised, even concerned, when you first hear who they are: amateurs.

10 News looked at the people our rescuers rely on when the power goes out and the phones go silent.

They don’t use sirens or flashing lights; instead, they use HAM radios to keep you safe when disaster strikes.

Great post and story by challenge 10 in Tampa Bay. http://www.wtsp.com/story/local/2014/01/01/10529295/?storyid=10529295

    I was curious if you ever considered changing the page layout
    of your website? Its very well written; I love what youve
    got to say. But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so
    people could connect with it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only having
    one or 2 pictures. Maybe you could space it out better?

    excellent post, very informative. I wonder why the opposite experts of this
    sector do not understand this. You must continue your writing.

    I’m confident, you have a great readers’ base already!
