Prepper’s Communication Handbook by Jim Cobb

I got this book for my dad as he goes to a prepper’s meeting twice a month and figured he will enjoy reading this book it is called Prepper’s Communication Handbook Lifesaving Strategies for Staying in Contact during and after a Disaster by Jim Cobb. This is the ultimate guide to acquiring, assembling and utilizing life-saving emergency communication systems including in-depth coverage of using HAM radios, walkie talkies, shortwave radios and CB radios.
When disaster strikes, calls, texts and emails don’t work, after 9/11, Hurricane Katrina, and Hurricane Sandy, cell phones were rendered useless when transmission towers were destroyed and networks became overloaded. Having an alternative way of reaching family and loved ones at these critical moments is essential. With this in-depth guide, you learn the best tips, tricks and expert secrets for surviving when phones and the internet fail.

This comprehensive guide covers everything needed to be fully prepared for when the grid goes down, including the best types of radio for every disaster scenario from HAM radios (used by most search and rescue groups) to walkie talkies (small and easy to use, ideal for children). And since survival communication goes beyond the short term, there are also instructions for longer term solutions like hand-cranked or solar powered batteries.
My Opinion: This book gave me tons of information and I learned a thing or two as well with the meaning of each type of radio, the codes used by the military, aviation and law enforcement. How to communicate online and by radio to get help.My dad is going to love this book and what it has to offer as he feels in the near future we will be having a disaster and he will be prepared.
