When I got interested in Ham Radio, I discovered on YouTube some video offerings from “USNERDOC“, a fellow in Oregon who was in the Navy and is an emergency medicine doctor. He has gotten into Ham Radio, in part, to participate in a civilian emergency response team.
This fellow’s desire to participate in the life of his community, to be prepared to help and volunteer, is appealing. As a matter of fact, if I can work things out the way I’d like, I may try to get involved with a civilian emergency response team, but I have to be educated about that a little more. Moreover, it was because of one of his videos that I did some research and then put a Yaesu radio on my wishlist (which is sitting right next to me, as a matter of fact – thanks MZ! You are not forgotten!). I used it several times to catch the ISS during a flyover! They have fueled my continued interest and my resolve in this new year to get that license. I will be looking around for some basic paramedic courses too. No matter what, such training is good. But that is another kettle of beans.
USNERDOC posted a cri de coeur about the 2nd Amendment and then reminds us about something longtime-Senator Diane Feinstein (D-CA) did once upon a time.
Lest it be forgotten. This post is as much about thinking about the future as it is to remind you about who has said what in the past when it comes to owning guns.
Anyway, check out some of USNERDOC’s videos on YouTube. He’s a mensch. He makes great gadgets. He explains equipment. He goes to cool places. He does great things with his son. You may be inspired to get into a few new activities.
