I'm not a quad so idk if I would do this but I think Amateur Radio would be fun 
and the club members in my area are delighted to help newbies get started. 

I was told that it can be modified for sip and puff chair users as well as 
those who control their chair with eye tracking.

Amateur or Ham radio operators have been useful during hurricanes and the 
recent devastating flood in the Baton Rouge area when power was out and cell 
phones were useless in many areas.

Idk what the start up costs would be but perhaps the radio clubs could assists 
finding used equipment.
