Disaster Zone Podcast: Amateur Radio Systems


Sometimes I think ham radio doesn’t get the credit it deserves for what the different systems can provide before, during and after a disaster.

See my latest Disaster area podcast: “Amateur Radio Systems”.

As we begin a new year, thank your own volunteers for their efforts to make your jurisdiction more resilient to disasters through what they do with their own equipment, time, knowledge and energy.

Here is the description of the podcast:

“Amateur radio is emergency management’s last best hope for maintaining disaster communications when all other systems fail. This podcast is an interview with two leaders of the Seattle Auxiliary Communications Service (Seattle ACS) Tim Helming and Catherine Middleton-Hardie. Seattle ACS supports the Seattle Office of Emergency Management In my experience, they are one of the first organizations of their type. In the podcast, you’ll learn all about the different types of amateur radio organizations, equipment, frequencies, and the wide variety of missions and activities that amateur radio operators support. And, a bit about how Seattle ACS is organized and maintains operational readiness.
