Duracell Batteries has used amateur radio in one of its major radio blubs. I sent a copy to the Ontario Ministry of Transport in order to encourage them to do the smart thing when it comes to granting exemptions to Ontario’s new anti-driving-while-talking-on-the-cell-phone law.
Funny (or sad) but a battery company seems to understand the power of the Amateur Radio Service more than our elected representatives. Call your local MPP and book a meeting with him or her to enlighten them on the benefits of an active and well-trained amateur radio volunteer group in their community. (You are a member of your local ARES group aren’t you?)
