Communications is vital to disaster preparedness. You have to be able to communicate among your team, call for help, and relay information.
Good communications doe not have to be expensive, but it does require effort. I am a amateur radio operator, but this is a personal weakness in my plan.
I only hold a no-code technician license so the bands I can operate is limited – my skill and knowledge in this area is also limited. I hope the posts in this site are useful to you, but mostly the communication posts here are my journey to learn more and fill the gaps in my plan.
