Two-Way Radio Operations

Saturday May 15th, 2 PM to 3:15 PM

Everyone’s talking about two-way radios: HAM, FRS, GMRS, CB… We’ll give you a look at the radios and radio systems used for post disaster communications. It is important that you keep in mind that after a major disaster phone/internet services will be down or hopelessly backed-up. To gain “situational awareness” in your neighborhood and beyond, you will need two-way radios.
