​Amateur ( HAM ) Radio

Is my spouse okay?  Where are my kids?  What's going on?  In a disaster, Information could quite possibly be the most valuable resource.  Yet our modern wireless and wired communications have either failed, become overloaded, or been deliberately limited in disasters.  So what system will work for me and my family without fail?  

"Before a disaster, men and women will make a choice.  They will choose to be victims of the disaster or victors over the disaster.

One choice requires no action whatsoever and ends in despair.  The other requires preparatory action but results in safety, refuge and peace of mind."

E. Tal Ehlers, MEP - Uintah County Emergency Manager
