Do you really think this type of communications is going to work?
Q: What do you do for communications WHEN the Internet and Cell Phone Networks go “Down?”
When you are watching ANY horror movie where standard communications cannot be found, the displaced people wind up in some OLD room. What do they typically find? You got it… An old “Radio.” They struggle to figure out how to use it to call for help.
This should tell us all something. Hollywood has been telling us this for years, without saying a word!
The ONLY way to ensure communications in any disaster, is a “Radio.”
Q: Do you know what it takes to make an antenna for a radio?
You can make an antenna out of just about any type of wire, but you need to know the formula (Registered Members can see the instructions under “You Ready? – How To’s”)
What about the radio? (Registered Members can see the Radio types under “You Ready? – How To’s”)
Q: What about Satellite phones?
A: Satellite systems run independent from the Internet or the Cell phone carriers. But, they are VERY expensive to call across from one Satellite system to another! Over $12 per minute. If you are using the SAME Satellite carrier (like Iridium, Inmarsat, Globalstar or Thuraya,) this would work, but you would have to have a calling plan that is in effect at the time of the outage. Be aware, the authentication servers could be effected by a mass internet outage. (Registered Members can see the Satellite Phone comparison under “You Ready? – How To’s”)
Food and Water
Q: Do you have food and water enough to last for you and your family, for when disaster strikes?
Q: Do you have what is necessary to fight? To defend yourself, your family, your friends, your country?
Q: Do you have enough medical supplies? Do you know how to care for yourself, your family, your friends, WTSHTF?
Q: #WTSHTF, who do you follow? Where do you go? Who do you gather with? Who do you trust?
BOP (Bug Out Plan)
Q: If you must leave the area you and/or your family is in, do you have a plan? You plan for when your home catches fire, when a hurricane hits, when the earth quakes. Do you have a plan for when riots or an insurrection breaks out in your area?
