There was a nice interview on Kansas City NPR. A couple of KC Hams were the guest on the local show in Kansas City. It is very interesting and might be a good link to share with folks that ask you, what is Ham radio? They also talked briefly about Ham radio group SATERN's role in the Joplin tornado aftermath.
Brian Short, KCØBS: ham radio operator for 27 years
Carolyn Wells, NØCJ: trauma nurse at Liberty Hospital
Matt May, KC4WCG: asst dir of operations - Johnson County Emergency Management
Give it a listen... very nice conversation !
