Advantages of HAM Radio
The society at large must be well protected. The protection given by the disaster management forces must be instant and immediate. Thus the disaster management crew must be well trained and equipped with the best appliances which might help them to communicate the condition they are in and the status of the calamity in the region they work for. Unlike commercial system, HAM Radio is not as dependent on terrestrial facilities that can fall during disaster. It is dispersed throughout a community without “choke points” such as cellular telephone sites that can be overloaded.
