But Wait, There’s More

Last, but not least, something I read on the ARRL website today made me smile.  Seems the FCC is looking to make a few changes post-Katrina, and the outlook is good for hams.  Would be nice if they made it “official” to do what many of us do already (setup stations at shelters, Red Cross locations, EOCs at local and state level) especially if they offer to foot the bill for some of the equipment.  Most of it has to come out of local budgets, and places just don’t budget for it – so I guess another good possibility is if they require the served agencies budget for it.  At least then we might not have to scrounge to get parts for an old radio, because nobody wants to buy a replacement.
