      encryption has nothing to do with channel availability.  Anybody that thinks the cells phones and radio channels don't get over loaded during major events either isn't paying attention or never been involved in a major event of any sort.  The cell phone channels get overloaded on mothers day to say nothing of floods, tornadoes, or hurricanes, all of which are sure to take down towers where they are most needed.

      Your report should show to the moronic ham radio operators that YES,
      encryption is needed so the agencies have that to fall back on. I have
      gotten sick and tired of everybody on RR stating that radio systems and
      cell networks won't fail.
