Ham radio and 9/11
September 11th, 2009 by K2DSL

I wasn’t an amateur radio operator on September 11, 2001 but here’s a link to a PDF version of an article that appeared in the Nov 2001 issue of QST magazine.

9/11/01: “This is Not a Test.”

I remember the events of that day as if it was yesterday. Never forget.

I was a ham at the time and responded to the Ramsey EOC directly from work. One of the best things I think that I’ve ever done in my life is to reach out to the families of a few hams who were trapped in NYC to let their loved ones know they were safe after making contact with them. I still get chills when I think about it.

I will never forget, and could never forget, even if I wanted to.
