    Long Distance Communication

    I looked but, havenít been able to find any thread on communication. Does anyone know any style of long distance communication that requires little energy? i.e. Can be used with solar panels but, I can get some serious distance. Iím building my house out in the middle of nowhere in Germany and it would be nice to speak to some peeps if SHTF. Any help is MUCHOOO apreciated. I'm an weapon expert not communication expert!

    They (whoever THEY is) claim 20 miles max. I would say HAM radio for real long distances. I have a portable HAM radio setup & am studying for the exam now.

    CB Radio's would be ok for around your area (20-50 Miles) Depending on your set up. But if I was you I would go with a HAM Radio. I need to read up on this subject myself and at my new place I am going to be setting one of these up. Once that is done I will show a picture.

    Will the HAM work in Europe? I'll do some digging but, if anyone knows before I get a chance to feel free to chime in!

    This might answer some of it? Not too sure I seen where it said they was going to try accessing the Columbus module.

    About 10 of us locally, here all have cb.s and one if not two the other people have ham radios./ We are all set on channel 5 on the cbs and can all talk to each other from our houses/trucks within about 6-10 miles We are in a hilly area but that is more then far enough to keep in close contact with each other. All powered by solar sysems, as we are all also on total solar. No powerlines out here at all.
