Ham Radio 360: ARES responds to the Joplin Tornado-a look back with AC0HA

This episode was recorded a few weeks ago in preparation for the program.  It should stand as a sobering reminder of the Force of Nature and how Amateurs may be called upon to respond in a crisis.  Earlier this week  a Twin-Tornado devastated the small Nebraskan town of Pilger.                

Our Prayers go up for all those affected.  Cale/K4CDN
