#hamradio#SARNET amateur radio operator at an EOC in Florida SARNET saying they have 50 shelters, but not enough radio operators to staff them. SARNET has not yet been formally activated, but expected soon. #HurricaneIan#HurricaneIan radio operator (earlier) said he had booked a hotel (farther inland) to ride out the hurricane, but they cancelled his reservation (closing because of the hurricane)... so he is going to just sleep in his truck.
