Article Out Loud - Ham Radio - An Emergency Tool for Public Health

An Article Out Loud Flashback from the Domestic Preparedness Journal, November 04, 2009.

In times of sudden disaster, help may be just around the corner – particularly if a ham radio operator is living there. Their ranks are legion, they usually pay all of their own costs, and they are among the most highly skilled communicators in the country. That combination makes them especially valuable as invisible volunteers in the nation’s domestic-preparedness community.
