Whenever there is a disaster (hurricane, earthquake, economic collapse, nuclear war, EMF, solar eruption, etc.), the normal means of communication that we're all reliant upon (cell phone, land line phone, the Internet, etc.) will probably be, at best, sporadic and at worst, non-existent.
As this author sees it, short of smoke signals and mirrors, there are three options for communication in "trying times": (1) GMRS or FRS radios; (2) CB radios; and (3) ham or amateur radio.
In this book he considers each of these options to come up with the most acceptable one.
Included in this volume are the names and addresses of the approximately 18,600 FCC licensed amateur operators in the Inland Deserts Region of California, organized by city, then sorted by street, then sorted by house number ... just in case.
