Nice, we should put together short term and long term prepping lists to include tested items like this.
I know nothing about HAM radios, I guess this will work anywhere in the world with a limited range?

USB programing cable and open source CHIRP software are must haves for these radios.

Trying to program them via the keypad is possible but annoying to say the least.

Im in the UK & keep a set of 6 of these handy, 4 pcs BaoFeng 888S Walkie Talkies 2 Way Radios Long Range UHF 400-470MHZ 16CH UK
as people say, you can never be too prepared & communication ability will be a life saver, get a good mile+ out of them, tested to make sure.

They also do battery backup packs for these so mains recharging or batteries have you covered for most situ's.
I dont know much about radio comms, used a CB as a kid in UK, but know enough to get me out of trouble
an reading what you guys have put here all helps.. cheers

As for HAM, i'll just to to see..

Harry
