  1. Most everything will grow along the Gulf Coast, but I never see any wheat growing anywhere. My guess is that the climate is too hot.

    AM/FM/Short Wave For the Cache

    That looks like a nice radio for the BOL or the BOV, even though it does not cover SW. Thanks for the link.

    Communication

    The little FRS "bubble-pack" radios are very good at exaggerating their effectiveness. I've never gotten more than a few blocks with them in town. They are cheap for a reason. CB might be viable if both of you can connect up to a good antenna (directional would be even better). But CB is AM, which is very noisy, and the band is not that great in some areas. You are limited to 40 channels in a single band. Other options might be radios certified for MURS (Multiple Use Radio Service) or GMRS (General Mobile Radio Service). Both have their +'s and -'s. But, in my opinion, if you are going to make that kind of investment ($75-$300) you might as well go the Ham (Amateur Radio) route and be done with it. It does require a license for both parties ($15 dollars and an exam on basics). The equipment is readily available new and used. Hams are a very friendly group and happy to help the newbies. A technician license (the lowest level) will limit your choice of frequencies (upgrading will get you more "privileges"). Just Google "Amateur Radio" or go here for more information: http://www.arrl.org/helloradio-org

    Questions, answers, and other things

    FWIW, the Puxing 777 Plus (MURS VHF) also has voice inversion. The voice inversion makes the message completely unintelligible on an open receiver. However, the voice inversion method uses a standard algorithm. So, any radio equippped with voice inversion will decrypt with no problem, and I have read that a Ham radio with SSB can do the same thing. It will eliminate the casual listener as most scanners do not have voice inversion monitoring. However, there are also external devices that can be added to do the re-inversion.

    Go-To (Guard Ch.) Frequences ????

    Thanks, Capt. I've used that chart many times. And thanks for the caveats on band usage, too. I am only tech licensed, so I would only be able to transmit voice on 70cm. My own addition would be a reminder that one does not need a license to monitor any of the bands.

    Go-To (Guard Ch.) Frequences ????

    I know of nothing specific within the group, but maybe others do. I do have this information from TAPRN. "Catastrophe Network and The American Preparedness Radio Network (TAPRN) have teamed up to create a Standardized Amateur Radio Prepper Communications Plan. This plan outlines a standard set of frequencies that should be used by all preppers following a catastrophic disaster. These frequencies will serve as a meeting point where information about the event can be shared and actions between like minded preppers can be communicated." 80 Meters – 3.818 MHz LSB (TAPRN Net: Sundays at 9 PM ET) 40 Meters – 7.242 MHz LSB 40 Meters Morse Code / Digital – 7.073 MHz USB 20 Meters – 14.242 MHz USB 20 Meters Morse Code / Digital – 14.073 MHz USB 2 Meters – 146.420 MHz FM 440 (70 cm) – 446.420 MHz FM FRS/GMRS – Channel 4 (462.6375 MHz) CB – Channel 4 (27.005 MHz) MURS – Channel 4 (154.570 MHz) Here's the link to the complete article: http://www.catastrophenetwork.org/?page_id=446 I hope this is helpful.

    Best all around hand-held radio

    Nice video. Maybe I missed it, but I didn't hear the radio model number he was recommending. After Googling the name, I saw quite a few that looked like his. Any help?
