The U.S. Federal Communications Commission (FCC) has released its anticipated report on the uses and capabilities of amateur radio operations in emergency communications.

Amateur radio operators have played a vital role in natural disasters, providing a critical communications link for both first responders and victims. Mandated by the Middle Class Tax Relief and Job Creation Act of 2012, the Commission’s report provides a thorough review of the role and importance of emergency amateur radio communications. It also identifies recommendations for the enhanced use of amateur radio operators, as well as ways to better integrate amateur radio operators into future Federal emergency response initiatives and programs.
