Role in preparedness?
- Monitor local emergency services
- Monitor “ham chat” on local repeaters
- Monitor NOAA weather radio
- Communicate with other local preppers or survival groups
- Keep in constant contact with security patrols
- Gain inside knowledge of how emergency services respond to disasters by getting involved in ARES or similar groups
LICENSING – Self study, exam spots, local clubs (ie NARA) Better to phone vs email re:local courses
Industry Canada, exam generator, and basic info
Youtube self-study courses
Perhaps a prepper hailing frequency… Channel 7 GMRS/FRS 462.7125 Mhz (1 Watt)
- Figure out what type of radio would best suit your needs, and buy a pair. Even if it’s just a pair of Midland FRSs.
Eric – Please check out Rapid Survival www.rapidsurvival.com and get me there on live chat while buying some prepper gear, or you can also email me at firstname.lastname@example.org (while still buying prepper gear at Rapid Survival)
