Southern Exposu In Case of Emergency, Start He

Posted: 03 Oct 2017 05:37 PM PDT

SEASIDE -- In case of emergency, start here. Ham radio is at the heart of
our region's safety efforts when the Big One hits. "We know it's going to
happen," said Hal Denison, president of the Seaside Tsunami Amateur Radio
Society and a licensed expert radio operator. "We've been training for that
on a daily basis." Amateur radio is the last resource in an emergency when
there is no other means of communication. "That's what we prepare for and
back up for," Denison said. "There may not be phones. There may not be
cellphones. We don't really know how many are going to survive. But we know
that the amateur radio is running." The more operators, the greater the
possibility of having people who can help, Denison said. Local radio
enthusiasts watched with great interest the response in Texas and Florida
after a season of hurricanes and floods. "From a ham point of view, we know
those were the only communications down there," Dana Gandy, president of
Sunset Empire Amateur Radio Club, said.
