Ham Radio Gaining New Respect

With smart phones, computers, and even landline telephones relying more and more on the Internet, what happens in a disaster that damages cell towers and other infrastructure?

Amateur radio operators spring into action. A method of communication--once thought to be dying off due to the increasing speed and popularity of the World Wide Web--is gaining new respect and unprecedented growth, especially in situations where the only available means of emergency communications is good "old-fashioned" ham radio.
