Kansas City news station KMBC9 reporter Brenda Washington interviews Chet Hallberg about the role amateur radio plays in emergency communications. Specifically, they focus on communications after a large earthquake on the New Madrid fault. In the second part, Chet shows off one of the American Red Cross Disaster Relief vehicles. He goes on to explain the different kinds of equipment in the vehicle and how it has been used recently with the flooding in Arkansas. There is also a mention (plug!) for SkyWarn in the Kansas City area and amateur radio uses with the National Weather Service in times of severe weather. Capture & encode by Bill Kellogg, WD0DXK
