Acoustic coupling can also be illegal if it is picking up room noise like people talking, etc. It would be considered operating a voice mode in the data/cw sub-band and it would be considered poor operating practice.

Perhaps in a drill, but in a real emergency anything goes.
True, but "So what?".   Why not have a spark transmitter ready? Wink

"Good engineering and ham practice" should always be the foundation for operating.  Prepare the correct gear and use it.  All the time.

The ability to improvise a solution is also good engineering practice.

There is NO excuse not to have a simple interface!!!...It can be built for a few bucks and even free
if u have a junk box. You could have one or even 2 for each radio, I do.

And to promote none is bad practice.....very bad.
(but typical of todays hams...why do it right???)

If you are serious about providing emergency communications, then you'd have the proper solution available when you need it. Then there is no need for the "anything goes" sloppiness.

Really? So you can predict what will be needed in an emergency or who will have to be the responder and make sure, somehow, that they have all the necessary bits and pieces to get involved and communicate.

Someone thrust into an emergency situation who has never been interested in PSK-31 can, at least, communicate using acoustic coupling.

The bureaucrat's response: "we know what's best and how to implement it because we are in charge".

If people like you run RACES and ARES I'll opt out.
