Is the Ham Communicator Obsolete?

Ouch – that hurt!

More and more events are finding that the “I only talk on the radio” volunteer is becoming obsolete. With the advent of numerous other forms of communication more and more events are seeking volunteers (primary function) with ham radio skills (secondary). These events empower the volunteer to more than only relaying information by radio to represent the event and becoming a part of the trouble solving team.

In my downriver race, the hams are event volunteer with communication as primary, but they are insured as any other volunteer.
