Agreed - it is unfortunate because we absolutely have local  
information to communicate to travellers and ham radio operators  
right now (we had several tornados touch down in the region, we have  
areas without telephones due to storm damage, and, worst of all, it  
seems that over 50% of Wyoming communities are having telephone  
issues right now due to a problem the phone company is having.  In  
other words, the "business case" for ham radio.
