A note to the public: There are 5 great reasons to join or watch this community:

1 - You can use it to get the word out, to ham radio operators, about any urgent crisis which you see arise.

2 - You can monitor crises in other countries or regions.

3 - You can help coordinate information within the community.

4 - You can learn more about becoming an amateur radio operator yourself.

5 - You can help link the INTERNET to AMATEUR RADIO.

The last point is very important to all: This is the community which links INTERNET USERS to HAM BROADCASTING. This is an amazing, fast growing field or hobby which can help overcome all barriers, boundaries, oceans and incomes. If you have internet access, you can broadcast via ham. If you have a ham, you can post to, or chat on, the internet. Even if there is a crisis, you can still go online with a dial-up modem, and have access to a vast network, and to people who are prepared - and trained - to respond!
