Emergency Communications 2

W4AZM & KK4CGM follow up the E-Comm 1 presentation with a more detailed look at Ham Radio and the value it offers in emergency situations. Subjects covered in this presentation include understanding the different FCC licensing classes and how they relate to the type of communication you can achieve during infrastructure failure. Information is presented on the ARRL National Traffic System (NTS) and how hams and non-hams can utilize it. Basic wave propagation principles are also discussed. The audio in this video drops out occasionally for a brief time, but not to the point you loose the point of the conversation.
