Amateur radio update

When the telephone and TV lines are knocked down by wind...
and the cell phone towers are without electrical power...
and the satellite phones blocked by thick cloud cover...
there is still amateur radio!

Once upon a time, when we drove down the road, I found myself watching the traffic. Now, I am looking out the windows to see if I can spot any beam/vertical/dipole antennas. I think this is a sign that I am enjoying amateur radio. Only two weeks left until my licensing exam! As for now, I am going to check out some more resources at my local library.
