Cellular phones and satellite communications are common place in Door and Kewaunee Counties. They’re also vulnerable to sudden disruption. So local amateur radio operators are ready to relay emergency communications if that happens. Mike Green of Baileys Harbor is a retired police officer and amateur radio operator. Green and other operators put their skills to the test for a simulated emergency.
Green says amateur radio is considered to be older technology. That means it’s also not susceptible to the types of disruptions that can disable wireless and more modern communications systems.
