Baofeng UV-5R+ Plus UHF VHF Long Range Dual Band Ham Amateur Two Way Radio, Black
While mobile phones and texting seem to have replaced the convenience and simplicity of two-way radios. The freedom from reliance on a cellular network to communicate makes a LONG RANGE DUAL BAND TWO WAY RADIO ideal for backpacking, camping, road trips, and a good place to start when prepping. As long as you are within the range the radio is designed for and have limited obstructions, you can talk as much as you want, at no cost. Keep an ear on things and call for help no matter the emergency situation. We’ve seen during recent disasters that you just can’t always count on mobile phones or the internet to communicate in an emergency. You need to be prepared with a communication method not dependent on the electrical and data grid.
