Bugging-Out? Don’t forget your Repeater Directory

Unless you plan to truck around some serious communications equipment, power supply and antennas when you Bug Out, if you are like me, you’ll likely only be carrying a small portable handheld Amateur transceiver which rely heavily on repeaters for extended range.

HAM…..Not The Meat On Your Sandwich

We are so spoiled with communications these days. How many people remember it wasn’t long ago that cell phones were NOT in every person’s pocket or purse. Everyone you know is either a phone call, text, or email away. So with this, we have become complacent when it comes to forms of communications. No longer do we take time to compose a handwritten letter, or send post card when email and texting is so much quicker. But wait. A major event has just occurred and we can’t do these things any longer.
