One problem is that the ham repeaters get so infused with FEMA enhancements that the repeater really becomes a FEMA asset with limitations on use.

I been a radio techie for decades. In 2007 I decided to get the ham license. After I tested and passed, I found out the fine print. No license without the FCC forcing you to divulge your SSN. Another ham operator explained to me, it’s all about the child support & enforcement network the feds have setup to stomp on every citizen with. Big brother is every aspect of our lives.

As I said, I know nothing about ham radio. I take it that a repeater is a device which allows you guys to exceed the range of your transceiver, probably many times over. It seems to me that you might be able to work out a system for "repeating" important messages from transceiver to transceiver without FEMA involvement. With FEMA involved, you'd probably need a good solid encryption system too.

Just trying to imagine how you might exclude a malignant government from your transmissions in a particular type of national emergency.
