At an FCC conference in May 2011, FEMA Administrator Craig Fugate mentioned that "When Everything Else Fails. Amateur Radio often times is our last line of defense." He said that we often rely on cell phones and public safety communication for their resilience, but we must remember that they fail--"They do, they have, they will!" Mr. Fugate went on to recommend that "A strong amateur radio community," "be plugged into" emergency communications plans. He emphasized that amateur radio should be included in emergency planning, because "When you need amateur radio, you really need them." In closing he included amateur radio communications as part of a broad mission which has one objective--to meet the needs of survivors of a disaster. This video was filmed by the FCC and is in the Public Domain.

What is your personal plan for communication during a natural disaster? (such as the ice storm that hit northern New England last week) If the regular telephone communications infrastructure is not available, how could you call people outside your area? How could you receive calls? Where can VoIP play a role in this? In this episode, Dan York talks about these issues and his own ways of reaching out to people and having people hopefully reach him.

This is the VOA Special English Economics Report, from http://voaspecialenglish.com A newly released proposal calls for almost everyone in the United States to have high-speed Internet service at home within ten years. On March sixteenth the Federal Communications Commission sent its National Broadband Plan to Congress. The F.C.C. wants one hundred million homes to have inexpensive Internet service at ten times current speeds. Another goal for twenty twenty is to have the fastest and most extensive wireless network of any nation. The United States invented the Internet. Yet a recent study placed it sixteenth in broadband access. F.C.C. Chairman Julius Genachowski says the service available is slow and costly compared with other developed countries. Currently, about two-thirds of Americans have broadband at home. But almost one hundred million do not. The government says fourteen million of them cannot get broadband even if they wanted it. The United States built a national highway system to expand transportation. Now President Obama says a similar effort is needed to expand broadband networks. His administration says expanding access is an economic development issue. Fast connections, it says, are important to business and job creation, and to other areas like education and health care. The government proposes to spend up to sixteen billion dollars on a wireless network for public safety agencies. Most Americans get broadband service through their cable television provider or telephone company. There are rules for companies that supply utilities like electricity and water to let competitors use their wires or pipes. But some experts point out the lack of such "open access" rules for telephone and cable companies. This is unlike some other countries with better broadband access. Expanding service to some areas of the country will require wireless transmission. But there is a limited amount of radio frequency spectrum available. To help pay for the plan, the F.C.C. wants to sell five hundred megahertz of spectrum. But it says the plan will require ten times more unused spectrum than it can now offer. TV stations are worried that they will be forced to give up some of their frequencies. Some members of Congress have questioned the costs of the F.C.C. plan and how it may affect competition. At the same time, a court case has raised questions about the agency's legal powers to regulate broadband service. And thats the VOA Special English Economics Report.

Hello everybody and welcome back to the Everything Ham Radio Podcast! In this episode we are going to be talking about the Amateur Radio Emergency Services(ARES), we talk about the Bridgeland Amateur Radio Club in Logan, UT in our amateur radio club spotlight, we talk about some upcoming events/contests and Hamfests for the next two weeks and wrap it up with some news from around the hobby! Tech Corner - Amateur Radio Emergency Services(ARES) What is ARES? ARES is an organization started by the ARRL that consists of licensed amateurs who have voluntarily registered their qualifications and equipment for communications duty when disaster strikes. Every licensed amateur is eligible to apply for ARES membership. ARES is broken down into four levels: national, section, district and local. The national level emergency coordination is handled at the ARRL headquarters by the ARRL Field Services and Field Sport Manager or his/her designee. They are responsible for advising all ARES officials regarding their problems, maintaining contact with federal government and other national officials concerned with amateur emergency communications potential, and in general carrying out the ARRL’s policies regarding emergency communications. At the section level, the section emergency coordinator is an assistant to the section manager for emergency preparedness. The SEC is appointed by the section manager to handle all things dealing with emergency communications. Part of the SEC’s job is to support and help grow their sections participation in ARES functions. They are the person that is responsible for collecting all the district activity reports and making a consolidated report to the section manager and ARRL headquarters. They are also responsible to maintain a good work relationship with state and local governments, civil preparedness, Federal Emergency Management agencies, the Salvation Army, MWS, etc. In large sections, the SEC has the option of breaking down the geographical area in smaller, more management areas or districts. If this is done, the SEC would make recommendations for a district emergency coordinator. This person would be a go between between the local and section levels with much of the same duties as the SEC has but on a smaller scale. Lastly, we come to the local level. Each local area will have their own Emergency Coordinator that is appointed by the SEC. The local level EC is the most hands on of all the levels and is responsible for more as well. Parts of the local EC’s responsibilities are; Promoting and enhancing the activities of the ARES for the benefit of the public. Manage and coordinate training, organization, and emergency preparedness of interested amateurs in the area. Establish and maintain a good working relationship with local and state government officials. Develop detailed local operational plans with served agencies and partners in their jurisdiction. Establish a local communications network Establish an emergency communications plans And more… Training The majority of the training that you will receive when you join your local ARES team will be done at meetings and on the air during nets. However, there are a few things that you can take as well and depending on your local ARES group some may be required as well. NIMS - IS-100.b NIMS - IS-700.A ARRL - EC-001 - Introduction to Emergency Communications ARRL - EC-016 - Public Service and Emergency Communicationss Management for Radio Amateurs ARRL - EC-015 - ARRL Public Relations - This is a good course to take if you are the Public Information Officer for your club or ARES group. Skywarn Storm Spotter Training - If your ARES group doubles as you local Skywarn team, this training may also be required, typically once every two years. Along the same lines of training, what are you good at? Are you a good multitasker? Are you good under stress? Are you good at fixing things? There is so much that goes on during a disaster and the planning before hand that has to be done, if something is your “cup of tea” make sure that someone knows about it. If you are a good multitasker and you do good under stress, you should volunteer to be net control. If you are a good organizer, maybe you can help with the emergency planning before a disaster hits, or help design a drill. Even though our main responsibility with ARES and as a ham in general is communictions, there is so much more that goes on, make sure you let your local EC know what you are good at, what you like to do, or what you would like to learn to do so that they know and can assign you to what you are good at or get you training before a disaster hits so that you can do what you like to do. Traffic Handling Traffic handling is a very important part of our job as communicators. During an ARES operation, messages are passed using the RadioGram format of the National Traffic System. It is important to...

10 steps to prepare for a hurricane or severe weather: HURRICANE SEASON IS JUNE 1ST-NOVEMBER 30TH 1. Prepare a Disaster Supplies Kit & a Personal Evacuation Plan. Identify where you could go ahead of time. If you are told to evacuate choose several locations and keep directions and contact information ready. 2. Make a communication plan with family & friends. Talk with family about your plans for evacuation during a storm. 3. Keep informed. Listen to the radio or watch TV for the latest weather updates. If you are told to evacuate, do so immediately. 4. Take these things when evacuating. Prescription medications, cash, sleeping bag, pillow, water and non-perishable foods, first-aid kit, battery operated radio, flashlight, batteries, car keys, cell phone, maps, directions, shelter locations, shelter contact information, driver's license, social security card and insurance papers. 5. Do these things before evacuating: Unplug all electrical appliances, move all valuables off the floor to avoid damage in case of flooding, close blinds and curtains, close and lock apartment and home windows and doors. 6. Fill your car's gas tank & make sure you have cash. ATM and gas pumps don't work if the electricity goes out. 7. Don't forget your pet & remember to bring: Food, water, medication, toys, crate, leash and any other pet essentials. Shelters require a crate for your dog or cat so be prepared. 8. What to do when the hurricane arrives: Listen to the radio or TV, stay indoors and don't party. This is a time for you to be aware and ready to evacuate if necessary. 9. What to do after the hurricane: Continue to listen to the radio or local TV station for instructions and inspect your home for damage. If the power is out, use flashlights in the dark, not candles. Avoid power lines or plugging in electrical appliances in standing water. 10. More resources: For shelter information, check the UF website, local newspapers, radio stations, or TV news. For more information, visit the following websites or call the following hotlines: UF's Homepage: www.ufl.edu Alachua County Rumor Control Hotline: (352) 264-6557

"The 911 technology is so far behind what it needs to be," says John Kiskaden, director for the Clermont County Communications Center "The technology isn't conducive to the technology in the field. 911 is still a legacy phone system that depends on copper lines, and towers." That’s good if you're on a home phone. But he says 83 percent of emergency calls come from a cell phone, which pings a nearby radio tower. "The first thing we have is that tower location. Your cell phone knows where you're at, but I don't," Kiskaden says.

GENESEE COUNTY Firefighters will undergo additional training on the new radio system as operations are remapped this month It has been a little over a year since Genesee County has switched over to the Harris P25 Digital radio system. In that year, the system is still a work in progress according to County officials. With only 6 months to prepare for the switch over, Sheriff Maha says the county did well for the pressure and time constraints it was under. All with no additional help in implementing the system. Maha says other counties had anywhere from 18-24 months to prepare for a new digital radio system with offline testing. The FCC, working with Sprint/Nextel, informed Genesee County it would have to move it's radio channels to a different channel due to interference with cellular phones and public safety communications. The FCC gave the county a date of March 14, 2014 for the system switch over or the county would face significant penalties. At the end of February 2014, Genesee County went live with the Harris P25 Digital radio system without a testing period. Because the amount of time it took to negotiate with Sprint/ Nextel during the rebanding process, the county ran out of time. Sprint paid for the cost of moving the county channels and the negotiation process lasted 3-4 years. Since the beginning, the Harris radio system fleet map and talk group structure has remained the same as it was on the previous Motorola analog system. The 18 fire companies in the county felt that keeping operations the same would be less of a challenge for new users. After a September 18, 2014 incident involving a City firefighter not being heard inside a smokey fire on Swan street, The Fire Advisory Board has voted to remap the old talk group structure as it is not workable with the new system. According to City of Batavia Fire Chief Jim Maxwell, Lt. Whitcombe of the Batavia Fire Department was inside a smokey apartment fire at Swan and Ellicott street when he attempted to use his radio to communicate with the crews outside the building. He was unable to transmit his message. According to Kevin Desmond, with SSC Consulting, the radios were working correctly that day. Desmond was called in by Harris Radio in October to investigate the issue that occurred. While Lt. Whitcombe was attempting to transmit from inside the building at Swan and Ellicott, another emergency call was being dispatched by the 9-1-1 Center on Park road. Emergency calls take precedence. So Whitcombe's transmission was not heard. The way the radios are currently mapped, firefighters on scene are on the same channel as dispatchers. This creates a lot of extra traffic for the dispatcher and unnecessary traffic for the firefighters at an incident. So during the month of March about 800 firefighters will undergo additional training and all the radios in the county will be reprogrammed for the remapping. To avoid the radio transmission problem that happened in September of 2014, all incident commanders at fire scenes will now carry two radios. One radio will be a direct link to the system and dispatchers. The other will only be used for firefighters on scene as a private talk group, like a "walkie talkie" with only a two mile radius. Also instead of dispatchers listening to 6 fire channels they will now only listen to two, which will make monitoring an incident easier. The remapping will take effect April 1, 2015. Remapping is only one of the areas being address with the new radio system. Pericle Communications, who has been a consultant to the county during the process of implementing the radio system, has conducted an RF interference study. The study has been completed and the results of the study should be available soon. The county has been experiencing interference in LeRoy, Alexander and parts of Bethany. When the system first went live it went from a three tower to a six tower system. According to Sheriff Maha "Interference exists in all systems, but to what degree and that is what the consultant has been hired to do." The third issue the county is working on with Harris to solve is the issue of volume/gain control. Volume levels among users fluctuate up and down drastically. Tim Yaeger, Coordinator with the Office of Emergency Management says, "This issue causes users to turn their radios down and then transmissions are not heard." The County and Harris are working on a computer upgrade to the system which will solve this issue. The upgrade will be made in April of 2016. According to Maha, "It's a good system and we can have one of the best systems in the country if we can get the bugs worked out."

From abandoned Forts all over America, to the creepy military hospital that saved the most evil man in the world, these are 9 UNUSUAL DESERTED MILITARY SITES SUBSCRIBE TO WORLD UNEARTHED FOR WEEKLY AWESOME VIDEOS ! 9.Fort Tilden LOCATION - NEW YORK CITY 8.Johnston Atoll LOCATION - PACIFIC OCEAN 7.DUGA Radar Array LOCATION - UKRAINE 6.Željava Air Base LOCATION - CROATIA This place was considered of the scariest bases in former Yugoslavia, it was the largest air base it had, and one of the largest in Europe. It is believed the base held two full fighter squadrons, or 48 fighter jets. The more interesting part of the base was the underground bunkers, capable of surviving a 20kt nuclear blasts, and being self sustainable for up to 30 days. After it was apparent that the Yugoslav Wars of 91 were not going their way, the air base was destroyed by the Yugoslavian government. Nowadays, it is sometimes used for police training, but its primary purpose is an awesome urban exploration spot. 5.Devil's Slide Bunkers LOCATION - CALIFORNIA The Devil’s Slide is an aptly named area of the Pacific Coastline close to the city of Montara. It definitely looks like it was airlifted from the rocky Mediterranean coast. One of the hills was part of a military triangulation station designed during WW2. It served its purpose of protecting the harbor of San Francisco from the threat of a Japanese military attack. The bunker is still standing to this day, barely, but its still there. The area is prone to landslides and heavy erosion, chances are that the Devil’s Slide Bunker will slip into the Pacific Ocean sometime soon, so pack your bags if you want to see it in person. Beware of the current owners too, the area is now private property ! 4.RAF Stenigot LOCATION - ENGLAND Unfortunately, this is not the site of a downed UFO, as much as we want to believe the truth is out there, this is not it. RAF is an acronym for the British Royal Air Force, and the stenigot site was a radar station used for the early detection of Nazi Air Raids. After the war, the Stenigot got a major facelift, and the 4 dishes that we see in these pictures, as part of the ACE High programme. ACE High stands for Allied Command Europe and it was a radio communication system created by NATO in 1956. As the years passed, there was less and less need for this location, it was officially decommissioned in the late 80’s. But, still, it looks pretty strange from a far. 3.CAPE MAY BUNKER LOCATION - NEW JERSEY Don’t you just hate it when you go to the beach, and the only available spots to relax are right next to an abandoned WW2 era bunker? Yeah me too. The official name for this structure is Batter 223, it was built between the world wars as part of the modernization of the Coastal Defense Program. This bunker sports 6 foot thick walls that were ready to take direct hits from any enemy battleship, luckily, the bunker was never put to good use. There are no plans of destroying the bunker, so it's safe to say that it will remain on the beaches of New Jersey for quite a long time. 2.Stanley R. Mickelson Safeguard Complex LOCATION - NORTH DAKOTA SRMSC for short, is probably one of the most interesting things you can see in North Dakota, the state that boasts the title of the “Least Visited State”, but hey they also have the lowest unemployment rate in the country… so its even stevens Anyway, back to the base, this place was a crucial USA defense location, holding 30 SPARTAN antiballistic missiles capable of intercepting nuclear warheads 400+ miles away, and another 70 SPRINT short range anti-ballistic missiles. The site was first operational on April 1st, 1975, and was deactivated on February 10th 1976. The complex cost $6 Billion dollars to build, and operated for less than a year, that’s about 545,454,545 dollars per month. Hooo weeee
