PAST KNOWLEDGE SESSIONS

HAM RADIO FOR BEGINNERS with Lindy Bryant

Lindy Bryant speaking about Beginner's Ham Radio

When thinking about an event like a cyber-attack on our communications systems, where no phones or internet are available, possibly for many days or even longer, how would that affect your life?

Who you would want to connect with or need to rely on during an emergency like this? How far away are they? What are your options for communicating with them?

Ham Radio is alive and well and might be an excellent option for a scenario such as this. At this Knowledge Session we learned about what this communications option is, how it works, and what you would need to do in order to operate one.
