Preparing for emergencies: Amateur radio operators ready to help out
#1
Amateur radio may be just a hobby to some, but during an emergency these radio operators will likely be able to keep the lines of communication open to the outside world.

Also called hams, during an emergency when the power is off and the Internet and phones aren’t working, local amateur radio operators might very well be the best way to communicate with each other.
