Amateur Radio Operators Take Part in Simulated Emergency:
by on October 9, 2015
The test prepares ham radio operators to help with communications during power outages, natural disasters: Fourteen San Benito County amateur radio operators on Oct. 3 participated in an emergency communicators simulated emergency test, designed to ensure they are prepared for real emergencies as local as a power outage or as devastating as a large-scale earthquake. Activities during the test included setting up mobile antennas that run on batteries or solar panels, and checking in with state communication officials using high frequency radios. This year, San Benito County Amateur Radio Association (SBCARA) members members set up their main portable radio at the San Benito County Fair and ran on batteries charged by solar panels. Amateur radio operators, also called hams, are licensed by the Federal Communications Commission to use special frequencies to communicate far and near. In the event of a real emergency, hams would assist in establishing communications where needed for San Benito County citizens and local government. They push the boundaries of what is possible with mobile radios and antennas. Some of the devices amateur radio operators created led to innovations such as cell phones and VOIP (voice over Internet protocol), which allows people to make voice calls using a broadband Internet connection.
