    Ham radio is easy to get into. the licensing is easy for the entry level ‘Technician’ license.

    @GoingRogueSurvival You have to remember that they got rid of a morse code test for Hams now and the questions and answers are all published. You don’t need to have a Masters degree in Electronics to become a Ham. I know an 11 year old that has taken the test as well as an 84 year old lady. Forget CB’s because thats not going to help you unless the local PD has CB as well, which most don’t have anymore.

    Thanks for the feed back. I do think that it may be the best method for communication after something happens. The point I was trying to make is that it would be a challenge for most to get into Ham radio without some background in it or help from others. I am not trying to be an expert and don’t have the back ground in Ham radio as you do. This is why I made the comment that I can’t recommend them for use. Please note that the comments I made where only my opinion.

    Thanks for the feed back and I know it can be done on the cheap. I do agree that it may be the best method for communication after something happens. The point I was trying to make is that it would be a challenge for most to get into Ham radio without some background in it or help from others.

    Ham radio operators are not licensed by local clubs….ONLY by the FCC. Ham radio equipment is not that expensive, I just built an antenna for less then $5 and it works well.

    I agree with Jerry, don’t knock ham radio because it’s the best method of communicating in the event of an emergency because typcially your local EOC will have a Ham Radio operator on staff.

    Please do some research before talking about something.

    If you don’t have a background in radio communications don’t try and teach others please . Sounds like your just reading info off the internet does this make you a radio expert NO.
    And for survival HAM Radio would be your best method of communication . For i now this. i have a background in military communication and have a Amateur Radio License . Please Do your research next time.
