Glad to hear you folks are considering a communications thread. That’s been a concern of mine. I’d be interested in learning more about short-wave radio and other alternatives for getting "the big picture" in a crisis. I’m also interested in local person-to-person communications for connecting family members in the event of a very sudden catastrophic SHTF. We all know how tenuous cell phones are under catastrophic conditions, and I’d like to know that I can maintain contact with my husband if he’s 50 miles away when TSHTF. So many families have lost each other during wartime. I’d like to minimize that possibility.
Pete; I’d love to see you do an overview of this subject to get the thread started. I’m sure you don’t have anything better to do, LOL.
