    Emergency Preparedness 


    Gregg, AB9MZ will offer suggestions and ideas for the well prepared amateur radio operator.  This includes making sure your home station can handle power outages and  severe weather.

    In addition, a go-kit (or jump-kit) is what you prepare, keep ready, and grab on the way out the door when responding to the call for emergency response duties. It may consist of a fisherman’s vest, a bag or satchel, or any kind of soft (but well made) “carry-on” luggage. It must contain all the stuff you will or may need for at least a 24 hour stay at your post.
