Ellis County Amateur Radio Operators lend hand in tornado efforts (Texas)
#1
Throughout most of the day and into the night on December 26, 2015, Ellis County Amateur Radio club members that are part of the Ellis County Amateur Radio Emergency Service, http://www.elliscountyares.org/, used their communications skills to keep track of tornado activity that came through the county. Hams were strategically placed while storm spotting. They moved where the storm(s) moved keeping a safe distance. The information that was gathered was then passed on to NOAA weather personnel who rely on ham radio operators to report accurate and timely information. Had Internet and cell phones failed, ham radios would still be functional.
