That is fabulous that amateur radio served to help with hurricane emergency management in Texas.

It would be interesting to hear actual stories about how amateur radio was used, how it positioned itself or was perhaps mobile.

Maybe one of the HAM radio shows will tell more about it.

I'm guessing that HAM Nation, the weekly show from TWiT.tv, will do a show about Hurricane Harvey.

In the meanwhile they have done some very interesting subjects:

"Solar Eclipse QSO Party", "How a Pentode Tube Works", "History Behind Heathkit".

Earlier I was heard to say:

HAM Nation from TWiT.tv has come through!

Here is their action packed show on the Solar Eclipse and Hurricane Harvey.
