Amateur Radio Plays Important Role in Boston Bombing:

"...amateur radio can make your communications better during a crisis when “normal” modes of communication have failed."

That's the key--WHEN normal modes of communications have failed. And these days, that happens less and less with all the improvements and 'interoperability' that have been introduced.

"One recent example is the role of amateur radio during the Boston Marathon……..after the bombs went off and cell phone and other traditional modes of communication failed due to saturation of the network, amateur radio worked and worked well."

So, what was the "Important Role" it played? Examples, please.
