I know nothing about radios. Well that is not 100% true I think CB radios have a range of 2-3 miles and about 20 channels but that is about all. And I am thinking it is about time to start looking into finding the right one for me. Options I know are CB radio hand held CB radio mounted on shelf or car Two way radio Anyone got some links I can dig up info? I am wanting a radio that is pretty simple to use (got kids and if something happens to me someone else has to use it). And be able to contact others that might be hold up in survival mode over a good range.
