Show Notes

Amateur radio is emergency management’s last best hope for maintaining communications in a disaster when all other systems fail. This podcast is an interview with two leaders from the Seattle Auxiliary Communications Service (Seattle ACS) Tim helming and Catherine Middleton-Hardie. Seattle ACS supports the Seattle Office of Emergency Management In my experience, they are one of the premier organizations of their type. In the podcast you will learn all about the different types of amateur radio organizations, the equipment, frequencies and wide variety of missions and activities that amateur radio operators support. And, a bit about how Seattle ACS is organized and maintains their operational readiness.
