Hey right back! This sounds like a wonderful thing for us to do with some spare
gear that all of us have hanging around our shacks. I think I've got a couple of
spare talkies (with pretty old batteries) that could easily go there. Does
someone have time to check this guy out to figure out if he is legit, and if so,
figure out how we can send him stuff?
