For today's post, I'm diverting a bit from antenna experiments to bring you up to date on what's happening to communications in hurricane-devastated Puerto Rico and in other Caribbean islands impacted by Hurricane Maria.
This video is taken from "Ham Radio Nation", program 320. In this video, Dr. Bob Heil (K9EID) discusses hurricane recovery efforts in Puerto Rico with ARRL CEO Tom Gallagher (NY2RF). The ARRL has sent volunteer radio amateurs to the stricken island and to other nearby islands to help first responders with emergency communications and to assist public service agencies, such as police and fire departments, hospitals, The American Red Cross, and other community services repair and extend emergency communications to the entire island.
