I'm not sure where to post this. I've heard from several of my prepper friends that they would have liked to know about these in advance. So I'm putting the word out to those interested. If it needs to be moved or this is not appropriate then feel free to handle as needed and let me know please so I do not do it again.

I've posted these in the past and had many folks interested. The fee includes your ham test fee. The rest of it goes to support the volunteer sar team.

At first I thought this was for the pork product. I was rather confused!

Unfortunately, I am nowhere near that area. But that is a great program. IMO, 2 meter radios will be the major means of communication between prepared groups. It is very important. Of course, when TSHTF, we won’t need licenses. Still, it will be helpful if everyone is familiar with protocol and etiquette.
