Mississippi Senator Roger Wicker - a longtime supporter of amateur radio - used his Twitter feed in October to point out the ways in which hams helped with disaster response efforts in Florida after Hurricane Michael. 

According to the ARRL Letter, Wicker tweeted that hams are trained volunteers who "help maintain critical communication to areas with no electricity, phone, or internet service."
