0924 - Ham radio in the public eye

A friend passed along this link to a story in Delta Sky, their inflight magazine. It talks about one ham's work at a hospital in New Orleans after Katrina.

Hams aren't well known in American society, even though we step up, time and time again, when disaster strikes. About the only time most folks think about hams is when they see a tower, or get interference on their TV. Then, all they want to do is get rid of us.

I wish people would remember that we provide lots of assistance when nobody else can. It's not real likely, though.
