It's the first test of the severe weather alert in Ohio and they came out in droves on the ham radio to show their support for their community. There were people amswering to the requests of a female operator coordinating many for over a half hour.
There were firefighters, police officers, EMA coordinators and of course just the average Joe doing their bit in case there was a real emergency.
I am proud of my fellow americans and how they showed that they were ready and willing to give a hand when needed. We are not alone. We are ham operators. It is the ultimate in free chat.
