I don't know how many of you have a Ham license but see 

In talking with communication providers in the region they 
just now got satellite phones and in process of assessing 
and repairing communication lines for New Orleans.  They're 
still somewhat challenged with comms including at shelters.  
See the request below from ARRL.

There is an HF net setup and efforts under way by NCS down 


Attention All Amateurs...
 Amateur Radio emergency communication volunteers needed! 
(Sep 2, 2005) -- The ARRL now is seeking experienced Amateur 
Radio emergency volunteers to help supplement communication 
for American Red Cross feeding and sheltering operations in 
Mississippi, Alabama and the Florida Panhandle--as many as 
200 locations in all. Special consideration will be given to 
operators who have successfully completed the ARRL Amateur 
Radio Emergency Communications course training (Level I 
minimum) to serve as team leaders. These volunteer operators 
will help to provide communication and equipment for relief 
efforts in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina. If you're 
interested and qualified, please send an e-mail message to, providing name, call sign, contact 
information and any equipment you're willing and able to 
take along on a field deployment for an indefinite period. 
Volunteers may face hardship conditions without the usual 
amenities and will need to provide their own transportation 
to the marshaling area.
