I've got a Lee-Enfield that my grandfather used during the Normandy landings. It's at my dad's house and I lack pictures of it.

Lately it's been defending against hunger, being used for moose hunting. Assuming that moose survive armageddon, I've got you covered

Give me a couple days to get my account verified, and I'll be on. Never used Echolink but my dad's a big fan of it.

anyway, i was looking at getting into HAM for the purposed of mostly having communication when all other forms are broken. Soooo many options out there. What should you look for in an emergency radio?

It's all a compromise of what range you want and how portable you want.

I'd personally say get a 2 meter handheld. I'm rockin' an old Icom IC-2AT and I use it more than any other radio I own. Your average handheld with a good antenna will go about 25 miles on the flat and about 10 miles in a city or mountainous area - it'll cover most of a small city. A repeater can double this range, and a linked repeater network can go for thousands of miles. And hey, if you're in a populated area, if you need more range you can always contact another ham with a more powerful radio to relay a message for you.

To get more range yourself can use a mobile radio (12V powered thing, like an Icom IC-2000) but they're less than portable unless charging up a SLA battery and carrying them around with you, or keeping it in your car, is something you want to do.

To go full-out and do across-the-country or across-the-world radio, you'll need a HF radio and an antenna in your backyard.

been a tech for about ten years. been trying to get my dad away from tying in all his radios to computers for packet, etc. trying to tell him it's an evolutionary dead end, and counter to the whole point of ham radio.

I got my novice back when I was 11. Had to pass the 5 WPM morse code- failed twice. Passed the general when I was 13. Took 2 years to get up to 13 WPM on the code.

Now there's no code- kinda pisses me off cause I busted my ass for nothing. Oh well. Havent turned on a radio in 10 years. Heh.

Anyone have any true "Armageddon / Survival" setups?
