Ham Radio Helping Communities

I was asked to write a final paper for my University of Phoenix Class on a topic that I was passionate about. I thought that how Ham Radio helps communities would be a good paper as wells help others understand a little more about what makes Ham’s so passionate about the topic. I received an A on the paper and in the class and thought I would share with the community. The interesting part of the paper is that two of the people in the class were doing some disaster planning as they lived on the West Coast and they are getting more and more worried about earthquakes. My teacher is now going to get his license and I send the other person more information about the process. Add a Ham a year is my goal.

Here is the full post:

    Nick hi,

    very well done. I would like to share your paper with our local ham community. Is it OK with you if I translate and publish it on our club bulletin?

    Thanks in advance,


    Marco, IZ2LSO
