Welcome, Lloyd and Steve!

Lloyd Colston: First, I'd like to thank Avagene and Amy for inviting us to the Forum to discuss amateur radio.
...

Lloyd, how does ham radio play for the emergency manager? Can it benefit Citizens?
Lloyd Colston: Before Y2K, emergency managers stressed to Citizens that they should have a personal disaster plan and a personal disaster kit.
...
Lloyd, don't you have a friend who was there?
Lloyd Colston: Yes, I have a friend who served there as the Safety officer for the mission. He explained to me how teams deployed with a radio operator. He has frequently said the hams were valuable, especially one day in the snow and cold. The searchers were suffering from hypothermia. My friend had his radio operator to call the Incident Command for the search to be called for the day. He brags on ham radio a lot. Now, if I can only get him to get his license.
...
Lloyd, are there benefits for the emergency manager who chooses to support a radio program?

...
Ed Kostiuk: I want to thank both Steve and Lloyd.
...
This past weekend after graduating a class of SAR personnel, Lloyd and I were en route to a real situation and again it would have been impossible to communicate without his HAMS system. During STS-107 I asked our HAMS folks to call off the search due to bad weather; it was taken care of in a matter of minutes. We owe them so much.

...
