Wicker working to ease restrictions on ham radio operators

JACKSON COUNTY, MS (WLOX) - Sen. Roger Wicker stopped by the Central Jackson County EOC Friday morning to visit with some amateur radio operators. Wicker also tried his hand at making some calls as part of a special Hurricane Katrina anniversary event.

Senator Wicker said he knows the life saving role hams played during the storm ten years ago. He's trying to push legislation through Congress that would ease some restrictions on amateur radio operations in neighborhoods that ban them.
