You know, radio is NOT user friendly; at least not serious radio. You know, the kind of radio communication that you can use when the rest of the world cannot communicate further than they can shout! Sailing ’round the web, I find that when it comes to prepping and radios, there is always the question about licenses and it’s always something like this:
“Why should I get a ham license? If the world has ended,
there ain’t gonna be no FCC anyway !“
This argument is brought-up on most prepper ‘communication forums’. The “NO study & NO license plan” is to just buy ‘all the gear’, store it away for ‘someday’ and when the big emergency happens, they’ll pull it out and POOF!: instant radio communications. Let me share MY thoughts on this.
I’ll buy a mil-spec surgical kit on E-Bay!
I’ll keep it packed -duh- SOMEWHERE for when I NEED it!
