If we loose cell phones, etc. due to natural disasters and TSHTF how can preppers communicate or support our local community? What if an EMP event happens and out electronics are fried, what do we do? The answer is HAM operators. HAM operators have been in existence since before WW2 and is a means of communicating around the world easily. We have a couple of HAM operators in Iowa but we need a network of HAM operators for a continuance of communication. Are there any other HAM operators out there? Are there people that want to be HAM operators? We need your input.
