ham-radioI was struck by a particular detail in a recent and tragic search for a little girl in Tracy, a small town some people would consider to be within commuting distance of San Francisco. The Community Emergency Response Team found out the hard way that their official radios didn’t work, so they called upon ham radio operators to provide communication between the command post and the five field locations. That keeps my technophile world in perspective somehow.  [Title lyric courtesy of  Porter Wagoner, photo from Yaesu.]
