  • How To Get Ham Communication Up And Running

    UPDATE ON HAMS

    I spoke with my friend...

    www.arrl.org is the website for HAMS. According to him, FEMA, Coast Guard and others are not worth anything in this catastrophe for communication.
    The Salvation Army network, SATURN, not sure of annacronym spelling is operational ONLY for emergency outgoing calls. Not calls for good and networks are being allowed. There were two HAM radio operators operating during the flood. They were not solar. They have since gone off the air. No one know what happened to them- living or fatality.
    My friend says, police mobile systems can act as hams (didnt elaborate.) Police repeaters, he said are placed 30-60 miles apart. They are all down at this time.
    He said there are 250 hams on location ready to go in but unable to due to the instability of the situation.
    He agrees with my thought that a FIRST RESPONDER can carry in HAM equipment and try to get that stream of communication up and running.
    He reinforced if enforcement is in need of communicators there are HAMS standing by who can be accessed by arrl. And he does repeat all officers can listen but must unplug microphones.

    HAM operators can provide some great assistance. Not sure exactly what they are doing down there but i'm sure they are helping and could help more if people accept their help. BTW, might want to consider relocating this thread.
    It's 106 miles to Chicago, we've got a full tank of gas, half a pack of cigarettes, it's dark, and we're wearing sunglasses....Hit it!
