>>Wireless Networks Give Voice To Evacuees (September 9, 2005)
>>
>>    Hurricane Katrina survivor Caprice Butler had been at a 
>church
>>    shelter in rural northeastern Louisiana for nearly a 
>week when she
>>    finally heard her husband’s voice on an Internet phone 
>running on an
>>    improvised wireless network.
>>
>>    “I was just overjoyed,” she said yesterday, tearing up 
>as she spoke
>>    outside the church in the farming town of Mangham, 
about 
>200 miles
>>    from her flooded New Orleans home. “Words can’t explain 
>how I felt.”
>>
>>    …
>>
>>    The network at Mangham Baptist Church was the 
brainchild 
>of Mac
>>    Dearman, a wireless Internet service provider who was 
>driving past
>>    the church last week when he saw a group of parked 
cars, 
>realized
>>    they were people who had fled the hurricane and set 
>about providing
>>    relief, including food, clothing and online access.
>>
>>    Dearman hooked up a radio transmitter near the church 
>and linked
>>    that to a voice over Internet protocol (VoIP) telephone 
>and a
>>    computer, and suddenly the dozens of people taking 
>refuge at the
>>    church had the ability to reach out to the outside 
world.
>>
>>    Mostly, they are searching for loved ones and filling 
>out Federal
>>    Emergency Management Agency forms to get disaster aid.
>>
>>    “They just call from shelter to shelter to shelter 
>looking for their
>>    kids or for their daddies or their brothers because 
they 
>got
>>    separated, and they are just finding each other in the 
>last few
>>    days,” Dearman said, adding that people were often 
>overwhelmed when
>>    they connected.

>>        When Katrina hit, (Radio Response’s Paul) Smith and 
>other
>>        volunteer communications enthusiasts rushed down to 
>Louisiana.
>>        In Rayville, his team of techies clambered up a 
>local tower to
>>        blast WiFi signals 50 miles through the 
countryside; 
>their
>>        signals reached refugees clustered in church 
>basements with
>>        computers but no Internet connections. “We’re 
trying 
>to make
>>        sure families can contact each other, and get 
online 
>to register
>>        with FEMA’s Web site,” Smith told me.
