Craig, Have you joined our Communications group? They are on both web sites. Here on PFA and also on the OAS site.
Look in the tabs at the top of the page here if you are not already a member of that other site.
I have a Baofeng UV-5R+ Plus mobile unit, but have not gotten a HAM license yet.
Scott Elliot is our Comm coordinator person. Please check in with him for information on how and what PFA/OAS is doing in this area.
I am training up for my General License.
Craig: Check out www.uscda.us there setting up a commuication network. Perhaps it can some how work and help out may 16th and behond. Thx M.W.
