Survival Communication

 

2950-1

Having a decent communications system is paramount to survivalists, and survival groups. Without an adequate means to reach out across the miles, will severely hinder even the most well-prepared.

Most survivalists tend to use Citizen’s Band radios; though these radios will do the job, they are restricted to less than 5-miles, and inclement weather will reduce their transmission range exponentially. It’s much better to invest in a commercial UHF or VHF band radio, or as a minimum, a hand-held radio in the same band. There are several models available; but the two criteria that are necessary, is the frequency range and transmission power of the radio.

The Alaska Watchmen Group uses both hand-held, and mobile radios as the primary communications system in case things go south. Our radios were purchased with portability, and frequency range in mind. It’s important that we have the ability to communicate with each other in an emergency.

Our Wide Area Radio Network [ WARN ] was set-up to allow group members to stay in touch, and to receive emergency information during an event that disrupts the normal communications system. Having this network in place gives each of us the ability to establish and maintain communications; receive important information, and reach out across the miles while everybody else is left in the dark.

We are presently expanding the radio network to include other survivalists and survival groups around the country. If you have long-range radio capability, then please click HERE to access our webpage about setting-up an emergency radio communications network.

This network will be activated during an emergency.
