Just to clarify, the ARRL's new Emcomm website for non-hams will be http://www.emergency-radio.org/
, not the one mentioned above.
This will be a special website explaining Amateur Radio emergency operations and capabilities for individuals in a crisis By avoiding tech-speak and reaching out to individuals concerned about their family and individual safety in a crisis, they hope to reach a broad audience in 2007.
Right now it's still holding a clone of the hello-radio materials from last year as a placeholder.
Also, the special 2007 Emergency Communications brochure can be previewed on the ARRL website at http://www.arrl.org/pio/
These 2007 marketing brochures are being made possible thanks to a $15,000 donation from the Dayton Amateur Radio Association - the people who also sponsor the Dayton Hamvention®. Just as the league did with the Hello brochures, all they ask is the mailing costs of $6 per 100 brochures. Send check (payable to ARRL) along with request to Brochures@ARRL, 225 Main St, Newington, CT 06111. Be sure to include the mailing address where you want them sent! OR... You can put it on your credit card by going to: https://www.arrl.org/forms/development/donations/basic/
Please click "ARRL general fund" and type in "PR" in the comments area--and also be sure to let Allen or Roseanne know you did it so we can get them out to you by emailing the league at firstname.lastname@example.org
when you are done.
I'm not sure who is sponsoring the forum that was mentioned in the first post of this thread. Perhaps the sponsors could clarify.
Thanks & 73
