The Healing Springs Mountain VHF Society makes its home in Lexington, North Carolina and maintains the paired VHF and UHF W4PAR repeaters as well as supporting its members working a variety of HF modes.

When all else fails--Ham Radio!

All hams know that saying, but I'm not sure we've seen more dramatic proof of its truth than the aftermath of Hurricane Maria's devastating strike on Puerto Rico. CNN has a piece on how "Ham radio operators are saving Puerto Rico one transmission at a time" with video. Very impressive how the ARRL and hams in general have stepped up to provide a critical service no one else, including the government, was able to provide.
