  1. Disaster Preparedness General Discussion
    Whether you bug in or bug out, what do you bring for commo? When the internet dies, cell service is gone, and the TV doesn't work (THANK GOD!), what will YOU do? After long deliberation and discussing the idea with "The one who must be obeyed" we decide to get a HAM Radio (more like me on my...
  2. Disaster Preparedness General Discussion
    I just read an interesting article about the crisis in Japan. Most of us store numbers in our cell phones but no longer memorize them as we did in the "old days." How many people could you call if you lost your cell phone. How do you reconnect with family and friends...

During 911 I was close enough to see it. Cells were useless. I have seen Walkies online with a 30 mile range has anyone tried something...

    Apologies if this is common knowledge or already posted elsewhere, but it seems like having a common rating system for SHTF events would be useful in warning others & general communication. Something along the lines of the Richter scale for earthquakes & the storm category Levels they use for...
  8. Disaster Preparedness General Discussion
    This is probably best in a communications section, but I thought that I would post it here for everyone to comment. Has anyone thought of building a Crystal Set Radio for PSHTF. These can be made with a few as 4 parts that can be salvaged from an old receiver, and can easily be modified to...
