Question methods of communication when out wheelin'

Hey guys,

What do you use for communicating with the outside world in case of an emergency? Any trail I go on, the cell phone coverage dies in the first like 100 yards. Is there some kind of radio equipment you use? If so, then what's popular in the jeeper community?

Cb radios is a good option. Most people in a group use them.

CB, FRS, and Ham are the most popular I've seen. Our group uses CB, and I'm working on getting a Ham rig together for the Jeep, but I don't know any other Jeepers that use it around here unfortunately...

My friend has a personal sattelight tracker so he can program it to send a msg to his site online & his friends can see exactly where he is on the site at any given time or he can have a distress msg to them , or it has a 911 button. Very handy for remote area's.

I just have a plain ole' CB

There's a whole communication forum with many threads to read.

"But it does me no injury for my neighbour to say there are twenty gods, or no god. It neither picks my pocket nor breaks my leg." - Thomas Jefferson, Notes on the State of Virginia, 1782

Arguing with a truck driver is like wrestling with a pig in mud, eventually you realize the pig enjoys it.

We just use walkie talkies for now. LOL quick and easy

A computer beat me at chess once, but it was no match for my kickboxing skills.
