HAM & SHORTWAVE, SHTF COMMUNICATIONS, It's Time!
[link to www.amazon.com]


A UV5R is a "hack" all mode Ham radio from China. With the intentions of penetrating our comm systems by simply putting the means in an easy/affordable package to unruly bored Americans.

However, it's a dam fine radio that honestly does everything it claims. The quality is so stupid high for $35 it is mind boggling!

If you don't have a Ham, get this & learn to play with it. It's easy enough I assure you!

Many do not think about this, but when TPTB go into "lockdown" in other countries (still happening) Shortwave and Ham is about the ONLY means to find out solid outside intel and keep communications.
Most think this is stone age tech from the past, but most are also blind-sighted by the easily controlled communications we have here, (that can all be switched off in a minutes time).




On to Short-Wave....

[link to www.amazon.com]

Here is a very nice Voyager I personally own as well.

I didn't buy this for all the extra goodies; crank/solar/usb/AA power, or that it can also charge out the USB for phones and what-not, or the decent built-in lighting, or the fine tuning, or the cool look in a well protected case... or.....
I bought it for good shortwave reception (with ease of use).

I have no issues picking up all around the world (I do have a $7 clothesline-coil antenna but happy with the stock most of the time).

What is most important about this radio to me is the proper scan functions. I have a SHTF list of frequencies, but lets face it... you can never know all, and never know who's going to fire up a station if/when SHTF... so a proper digital scan is a must. I've had other's (digital w/scan) but this has a great sensitivity.

These two things (the UV5R HAM and the Voyager Pro) are honestly more important than almost anything I have for when SHTF. Plus I use them often, they are both functional and fun.

SO you could get both of these radio's for $100, and have better solid communications than most anyone you know.

It's not an 'ALL MODE' HAM transceiver, it covers UHF/VHF channels (2 meter)

So really, it covers a small spectrum of HAM frequencies, the transmit power is quite low as is the receiving wattage.

Still a cool little radio for the money though.

The drones will have a great time homing in on Preppers as soon as they turn these ham radios on.

Ok, our definition of "All Mode" varies, maybe mine's not the standard. I agree there are better HAM radio's out there, but hell, for $35 what more could one ask for? It's a solid, functional HAM radio for half the price of a scanner.

So if you are a HAM nut, yeah you can spend a few 100 more and go up a notch, but for the average GLPer, this is a great find and priced well.

Easy enough to get a visit from the FCC if you press the wrong buttons.

This is the worst advice I've seen with regards to Ham radio. These devices can and will transmit on frequencies that are illegal to transmit on OUT OF THE BOX!

Unless you know how to program the radio to block out these frequencies I wouldn't recommend anyone use these out of the box as is. You can easily interfere with public service and other frequencies that will get you a visit from the FCC. BTW these are ILLEGAL to use on FRS and GMRS services.

Pick the wrong frequency or accidentaly touch the PTT button and you're facing your own personal SHTF.

Re: HAM & SHORTWAVE, SHTF COMMUNICATIONS, It's Time!
I just found a guy on Craigslist thats selling these exact radios for $95.

Many sellers on Amazon have them for less than forty bucks, and I can tell you without hesitation that a good set of comms is vital to an extended survival kit.

Please remember, survival is not always the end of the world stuff. It can be localized/regional and having the ability to communicate with family/team members can be crucial.

As I always will say: We pretty much all have monitary constraints. If you are serious about having the ability to survive, and weather the storm of uncertainty, find a way.

We helped a friend have a serious garage sale once, and actually sold out on crap they had in the garage. It cleaned out the space and allowed some ready funds to begin his familys prep.

Start small, be smart and prepaired as you can. I will help in any way I can.
Peace is not the absence of conflict... it is the presence of justice.

I've had that portable for about a year, and with no background in ham radios I was able to figure out how to program my local repeaters no problem. As stated it's not the best out there but for the price it's amazing. I also bought the car battery deletion hookup to use on the go and a spare battery and handheld mic and programming cable.

You should also look into buying an updated paperback repeater directory or go online and print them out for grid down scenarios.

Also look into 2 way walkie talkie type radios with encryption, I have a set of 36 mile range midlands that were about 50 bucks with charging base and mics, used them in the woods and have had no problems, battery life is amazing as well.

Also if you don't have a ham license don't transmit, having these for a shtf situation is good though, listen in and if there is an end game scenario I'm sure license issues won't be a problem anyway but be respectful of the airwaves and know what your doing.
