Ham Radio Still Growing

To my surprise, in Slashdot, report on the growth of Ham radio. It doesn't require connectivity and in disasters, providing there is a power source, will still work.

Being a ham for nearly 40 years, this doesn't surprise me. In fact, this Saturday, I taught a one-day ham class at which 12 people were licensed. This included two brothers aged 10 and 12.

Hams that are really into emergency communications don't rely on power being available. They use batteries or solar panels.

73, <-- ham radio talk for "best regards"
