    Resistance 101: Why You Should Consider Ham Radio for Communications

    P.S. The "not kosher" part was just a joke about "ham" and "trads," neither of which are "kosher."

  • I agree.  Having alternate mean of communication is good under any circumstances.

  • For about $25 one may purchase Gordon West's Technician level exam guide. A few evenings will allow anyone to pass the entry level ham exam.

    After passing the easy exam, for about $45 one may purchase an inexpensive but perfectly serviceable Baofeng radio and get on the air.

    Of course, like any hobby, fishing, golf, whatever, you can spend more time and money.
