The following link, www.youtube.com/watch?v=pVZlK6M8WQ is an outstanding Public Safety video that describes "The Interoperability Continuum" which (in layman's terms) is a plan to improve communications or "a path to achieving optimum interoperability by broadening relationships". "Knowing who the players are around you" is a mission critical statement and to quote from the video, "The reality is, the most important ingredient in interoperability is relationships". "Relationships count and mean something". As a side note, our own Cherokee ARES members, Randy Kerr, KD4KHO, is in this video at 12:06 and 12:35 with great comments.
