    If the power grid were to go down, how would you communicate?

    I've got a crank / solar radio to receive. Buying a new generator soon -- gave my good older one to my youngest son. Oldest son has a short-wave xmitter; he's his certification / license, all that. We're electronics repair folk = can't get it, then rig it. You've gotta build a transmitter at school if you want your electronics degree.

    Comms
    Well I have an all band all mode except digital receiver! with an adapter to hook it up to my stationmaster antenna! that's for receiving!
    I have a 27meg citizens band radio (Galaxy DX959 ) for long range comms
    And many 477meg FM CB's for local comms! these all have the extended battery packs and spares!

    Information will be essential in any event! those who do not have access to information are doomed from the start!

    Thanks for your reply. I am just getting started with emergency communications. Got my Technician's license last year for my Kenwood HT-F6, and now doing research on ways to send text, etc. if the power grid is down. I am looking into such things as Gotenna as well, but will start with your recommendations.

    Incoming comms is for information gathering so one has an idea of what's happening beyond your own sight and hearing!
    Much better to hear of a looting gang coming your way with some fore warning than finding out when they break down your front gate!

    Out going comms is entirely up to you!

    Human companionship is a necessity. If you are not bitter over the ledge in wich case you might as well go jump off something straight away :rolleyes:
