Radio and Communication

If you are stuck in an unfortunate situation due to a disaster such as hurricanes, tornados, storms, floods, and wildfires, or lost your way during a hiking trip, an emergency alert system should be kept handy, so you can call for help.

Why use a radio walkie talkie?

Emergency communications are best carried out over radio, because unlike mobile phones, it can receive a wider range of signals, especially those that are local. Since mobile phones are limited to receiving signals from their respective network operators only, their users have a greater tendency to be disconnected if their signal provider (satellite) is damaged. With a sturdy radio, you can be up to date on the latest news and weather without relying on any particular operator, tower, or other mechanical links that could break the chain thereby losing the signal.

Benefits of a survival radio:

  • Weather alert radios are lightweight and compact, so you can easily slip it into a backpack. It does not take up too much space and is convenient for carrying.
  • These are waterproof walkie talkies, so even if you get caught in the rain, the emergency alerts can still be sent.  Being waterproof is necessary, especially when you are backpacking, boating or fishing. If you select a non waterproof radio and you are on a canoe or on a boat, make sure you position the radio in a dry location or one that is firmly secure in case the boat tips.
  • They have an automatic search function every second in an emergency situation counts. This function makes sure that the radio station you listen to can be heard clearly rather than manually searching for it.
  • Some radios have a flashlight to illuminate your surroundings, while others come with flashing red LED lights and a very loud siren to get attention from far away.
  • A telescoping antenna with a joint built-in so you can swivel and point the antenna in various directions is the most helpful design. Who knows when you may be in a very remote area and need these features to pull in the signals and information you need.
