W2XOY recounts his 9/11 experience

Like many old enough to remember, we know where we were when we first heard about the horrible events of 9/11 as they unfolded.

Bill Continelli, W2XOY, one of the contributors to This Week in Amateur Radio (TWIAR) was in lower Manhattan on September 11, 2001. He was south of the World Trade Center and heard the 2nd plane as it flew over and slammed into Tower #2.

He gives his recollection of how he used his communications equipment to safely evacuate Manhattan on that horrible day.
