In response to H Combs question the other day, I said I would post links to my previous comments about getting started in ham radio, from a prepper point of view.
Here is the full text of one comment I wrote for another site. The poster’s question was about the using the Baofang UV5 handy talkie for communicating with his parents in another state, and what would be involved in making that happen. Following the text is a link to the original comment, and all the other replies. Many of the replies have a lot of good info too. [I’ve added comments in square brackets today.]
