 Why does a vehicle that has amateur radio equipment inside even need a flashy set of lights other than to stroke the pride of the "responder"?
Unless you are a CERT member or an auxi PD or FD member I seriously doubt you will ever be in the position where you and said vehicle are out directing any street traffic. Besides, you'll get ran over... Cheesy

N3ZKP is correct.

The last thing I'd want at any real emergency would be some 'ham'.

Know your place.

Being a CERT instructor, I can assure you that CERT does not promote the use of emergency lightning on member vehicles.  CERT members are not the typical "first
 responder".  While they may be first on-scene at a neighborhood or workplace incident. they do not respond to other incidents unless directed.

This is radio. It's about being heard not seen.

New Tampa Bay ARES hats arrive
WIRE SERVICE STORY (JOKE)
05/30/2017, Embargo release time 10:00 AM ET
By ARES Chief Garment Pooba, Big Kahuna

Today, the three hundred hats ordered by the Tampa Bay ARES group finally arrived, two years late.  The hats were initially ordered two years ago, as a result of a tax levie put in place against Amateur Radio operators, living in HOA areas, in the Tampa Bay area. 

The hats were unpacked and prepared for release to the general Tampa Bay ARES community the same day they were received.  Mr Kahuna, the Tampa Bay spokesperson for ARES stated that this purchase was the result of negotiations with several prominent Amateur Radio groups to obtain "special pricing".  Each of the three hundred hats costs the taxpayers $150.00 each, without the accessories which will be added by ARES officials.

Now that the hats have finally arrived, each hat will be fitted with a siren, strobe light, and a UV5R.  Additional battery power will be added as well to cover the additional drain on stock batteries.  It is anticipated that these hats will begin showing up in, and on, ARES members hands, and heads in the Tampa Bay area sometime in late summer.

All persons or businesses are fictitious and any resemblance to to existing persons, or businesses, are coincidental.  This is a joke news news story.

Now there's a hat that makes me want to slap someone. Ha ha ha ha.

And that's why I don't have my call sign on my license plate. I don't want
hams following me. We're not related.

Is NK7Z making fun of some folks...YES!

Yup.

Oh and to answer your question Rick...real emergency...near loss of life, limb or property and we don't need a ham
in the way. Someone could die.

Some hams might think 'repeater down' is an emergency.

Ham radio is not important it's a hobby.

Someone can always die.
Each emergent situation has it's own circumstances. After Katrina, some hams were requested to come to the center of the situation. Others to other areas. In SAR situations, hams might accompany the teams.
Oh ... good job with the definition.
Some hams might think 'repeater down' is an emergency.
If that repeater is your only form of communications, being down could be an emergency.

Not having access to communications is not an emergency.

One might consider it real, real, real important but it's not an
emergency.

Emergency...imminent loss of life, limb or property. Does it warrant a call to the 9-1-1 folks?

Back to the paddle
