Like many of you preparing for bad times ahead “communications” are an essential part of my preps. I am reaching out to see if any of you might be willing to share you knowledge of HAM radio operations.
Basically I am looking for information on communications in a grid-down, no cell phone situation. From my own research – HAM radio’s are the logical choice for the longest range.
Specifically – I am interested in setting up two systems:
- Base system which to communicate to other base systems as well as mobile hand held units.
- Mobile to mobile via hand held units.
Any suggestions and sharing of experience would be helpful.
Additionally – if anyone is willing to share there own communication system we would love to hear it. Regardless of it consists of CB’s, FRS/GMRS, or two tin cans connected by a string – please share!
