This is a question for the Amateur Radio EMCOMM community: Do hams still pass formal health & welfare message traffic? My sense is we do not, at least not on any large-scale basis, but maybe I am wrong. I care about this because I am writing training materials that need to touch on this.
Specifically, I’d like examples of health & welfare traffic gathered and sent on behalf of served agencies. How was it collected? For whom? Where did it go? How many messages were there? How was it delivered? Was it delivered?
I suspect there is some informal ham-generated messages on behalf of family and friends and done without an agency request. I’d like to know about that, too.
