Let's talk communcation
This is a discussion on Let's talk communcation within the General Prepper and Survival Talk forums, part of the Survivalist, Prepper, Bushcrafter, Forest Rangers category; There are lots of 'RDF Foxhunt' clubs out there who organise competitions to have fun tracking down small radio transmitters ('foxes') planted by fellow members ...
I am a ham and also have the uv-5r. You won't regret it. It's a good little radio for not a lot of money. Me and my friends have these because they are programmable for freq's that you normally wouldn't (and couldn't legally right now) use. A ham license is inexpensive and good for 10 years.

I figured the uv-5r would be a good way to try it out without having to invest some bigtime cash. It's gonna be here Friday. I can't wait to get it setup.

I also have my HAM radio license and I use it everyday. one of the radio's I own is the Baofeng uv-5r, and it is a great little radio for the money it is about 40-50$ so it's cheap and it's an effective radio. it is pretty cool to be able to program multiple different channels/freq. from - Ham freq. (2 meter and 440) /weather freq. /fire,police,EMS dispatch freq. / GMRS freq. / and I think maybe FRS freq. (not 100% sure on that one), and if it was to break, it not a real big deal because its only 40-50$ and not 150$.

The only thing that separates man from animal is our affinity for toilet paper.
Once we as a society lose that affinity we begin to descend back into the animal kingdom, and after three or more days you will find the food chain beginning to invert on itself.
