Prepper communications are a big deal. Whether we are talking about long distance or short distance comms its very important that we prepare for a number of comms failures. It only takes one large scale disaster to block up phone lines and make it impossible to get a hold of your loved ones.
One of the best purchases you can make when getting into a widespread comms plan is a pair of affordable and effective two-way radios. While these radios will not create a long term solution for communication they will give you the ability to communicate from different locations in a neighborhood.
When building a communications play you need to look at the concept of PACE.
Address each of these methods and you will be on your way to success when it comes to communications.
If you are looking for the right purchase to make you could look at the Ksun BF-8885. This is a four pack of radios that will give a family of four each a 16 channel two way radio.
It’s very important that you have the ability to keep everyone connected during and after a disaster. These are going to be a short distance solution for that.
Communications is a tough thing to get a handle on because its BIG. It’s BIG and it’s not easy to understand. Food and water, these things make sense. They are easy to understand.
Comms are a little harder to understand. Use the PACE concept and make sure you are prepared with long distance option and a short distance option.
Once you tie up comms you can rest on the fact that, at the very least, you are going to be able to react in times of disaster. You will be able to make collective movements with the unit and escape or fortify your situation.
