You communications guys use these alphabet soup terms that mean something to you. But without Google the rest of us don't have a clue. Even with Google, we end up understanding model numbers and cost (astronomical usually), but that gets us no closer to understanding where to begin.

Does anyone want to take a crack at helping your average totally ignorant prepper learn the minimum requirements for local communications in case of emergency?

If I want to use a handheld, what is a good one to start with? Are the store bought two way radios a waste of money?
Why wouldn't a CB be enough?
What if I want a bare bones basic base station? What should it consist of?
Can I put an antenna in my attic? Would it help me get a better signal from EMS?

Help us out with the basics...
