We'd like to get serious a moment.
Ham radio is fun but it also provides a public service during times
of emergency. Nothing made this more evident than the traffic
handled during the hurricane season and the “Blizzard of '06”.
Now is the time for all active amateur radio
operators and groups such as ARES, RACES, ARPSC and Red Cross to
prepare for the next disaster. Let’s not fool ourselves;
there WILL be a next time. Let’s use what we have learned--some
hams were prepared, most were not!
Nobody wants to be stuck for days in their
own home without electricity, having no telephone, no TV, no radio...and
after a short time...no cell phone. There is absolutely no
reason for any licensed ham to be without essential communication
in such situations!
Recently, some ham magazines began
promoting "Emergency Stations" costing well over a thousand
dollars, some having questionable utility. We whole heartedly
agree that there is a need, but believe an effective,
low cost, low power consumption alternative which can be quickly
placed into service in the event of a wide area emergency situation
is a better approach. So, we now offer a complete station for less
station consists of
- A portable Sangean 505 full coverage
- Our TinyTenna Amplified Antenna
for the receiver,
- Our Peanut Whistle Two CW Transmitter
with 7040 kHz crystal,
- Our portable Yo-Yo-Tenna Antenna
for the transmitter, and
- An Ameco Code Key.
After you add batteries and a suitable station
container, you will possess a complete basic emergency station with
everything you need to communicate with the outside world in the
event of an emergency, disaster or terrorist strike.
Thanks to Buzz, AC7RG, for the photo of HIS
emergency station set-up inside a handy storage box. Not shown is

extra batteries, crystals, etc.
