Pretty decent article from "The Dallas News" promoting the emergency communications aspect of Amateur Radio.  The article focuses on the activities of amateur radio operators in the Dallas-Fort Worth area of Texas.  Max Perry (N5BSA), the president of the Irving Amateur Radio Club says amateur radio is "a wonderful hobby…"  It’s "considered a self-teaching method of electronics.  That’s where it came from:  An individual can study electronics and teach himself." Perry adds that one of the club’s major projects "includes acting as emergency support during severe weather or large community events."  The club also participates in SKYWARN and RACES, "both of which aim to support emergency responders with radio communications."  Aloha de Russ (KH6JRM).
