    Today I pulled the radios out of the safe and the get-home bags (GHB's) to test and charge them. The radio from one of the GHB's had a dead battery. I realized that the on/off button on the Baofeng radio had probably pressed against something, turned on the radio, and drained the battery. So...

    FRS threads come up now and again, and I usually don't pay them a whole lot of attention as a licensed ham. But if you want to build a small go-kit for emergencies, you'll toss in your ham HT (at the very least) -- but you may also add some FRS radios for your non-licensed family. The models...

    ** DEAL OF THE WEEK ** CCRadio-2 With FREE SoftSpeaker Pillow Speaker The CCRadio-2 is perhaps the best radio for AM performance and certainly one of the best to use during a local crisis using the 2-Meter Ham band. In addition, the FM and Weather band reception are excellent also. Offer ends...

    My old truck is going to go the coal mine…. I am selling it to them for a yard truck… So I am still looking for another one.

    Ok first off, I am not a techy when it comes to radios and how they operate so simple language please. Second, I want as simple of an answer to my question(s) as possible. My wife works 37 miles away from home and I want something with a preferred 100 mile range no matter what kind of terrain...

    I was thinkng if the shtf communication will be cut off how do you get in contact? example if you had family with you hiding in the woods and you guys split up to look for supplys how do you communicate? So I thought it would be cool to buy a midland camp base raido with about six midland two...

    So I was wondering if anybody here would have any suggestions on good walkie talkies. A good price range would be great, but suggestions based on reliability, range, and durability would be much appreciated. Thank you.

    Hi all I bought an Eton FR600 solarlink radio today; I'm at home trying it out and thinking to myself is there a need for shortwave bands and if so how will they be usefull. Anyone got some help for me as I may take the radio back and get the next lower model without shortwave if there is no...

    Has anyone ever thought about using a Conlang (Created language) to communicate in SHTF? Because it is a made up language, with no references outside of itself, a Conalng would be an unbreakable covert code. For example, one could learn Klingon for radio communications because hardly anyone...

    Anyone have any thoughts on two way radios? I've been told they are not traceable, unlike cell phones, and would seem a great asset for keeping in touch and coordinating in a nasty situation. I guess someone could find your channel and listen so a code might be necessary but could they pin...

    I am in the process of getting together a survival pack, I am new to this survival stuff, but I am getting serious about it. I am wanting to know what people have in their pack. I want my pack to be 100% ready to go with everything I would need to survive in the wild (northeastern USA) for a...

    What does everyone have in the way of communications gear for TEOTWAWKI? I'm planning to buy a good CB radio, but once I started looking at them I realized there's a lot more involved than your typical "walkie talkies". I wouldn't mind getting my 2-meter license, just to have the option...
