Call your local Red Cross, police, or fire & rescue, Natl. Weather Service
If there is an active group of ARES volunteers ( Amatuer Radio Emergency
Service ) they will know how to contact them. Sometimes the visitors info
or chamber of commerce will know about a local ham club.
My ARES activities have slowed a bit with my renewed interest in Scouting
thanks to my sons. They still like to help Dad and his radio buddies with
the walkathons though.
In ham radio jargon it is called "packet radio". A computer to a TNC to a
radio. The TNC is basically a modem that can connect to a radio.
If you have problems locating a "ham" let me know
My .02 . I'll take 2 meters over cell phone any day anywhere. My radio is
paid for while you will always be paying that phone bill. <G>
