Communications with loved ones is one of the most essential skills and plans you can have in place for a post disaster scenario. After 9/11, Katrina, Sandy and even during some major gatherings cell phone towers and other forms of communication are destroyed or incapable servicing your communication needs. Information is a critical resource regardless of disaster type. You need it in order to make effective decisions. Information will, or at least should, guide your actions and your planning. While food, water, shelter and security should be your first priorities as those are essential to your life moving forward. Once those needs are realized you will need to plan your next course of action (assuming you don’t have pre-plans for the scenario in place). To plan those next actions you will need to have up-to date and accurate information. One way to communicate effectively is by using ham radios. Find the best ones on this list.
Exploring the best options for every scenario, this hands on guide features detailed information on multiple emergency communication systems, including satellite radio, shortwave, NOAA receivers, GMRS/FRS radios, citizen band, ham radio, radio scanners and MURS radio.
