Are you suggesting we have something set up ahead of time ? I mean Teamspeak is just free long distance phone service using the internet. Easy to do. or am I misreading you >?My point of my original post is why isn't there a forum where these types of things can be discussed and new topics created?
That would depend. I have battery backups for my radio's and have several in the safe just in case. Antenna's won't be affected.d-star networks, cell networks, sms network ...None would work unless you could keep a generator / Landline phone and internet running.
Ham radio simplex would be the only thing worthwhile in a prolonged emergency.
Lots of ham repeaters have batteries that keep em going for a day or two if they are used lightly...after that if the power dont come back on they go down. we arent talking a dozen D cells here or a box of AA's...we are talking several deep cycle marine batteries at 80 pounds each or the super expensive and just as heavy gell cell batteries.I keep 6 new 27 Series Marine deep cycle batteries a large supply of gasoline and a pair of generators...I also have solar panels for charging batteries as well.That would depend.
