The Prepper’s Guide to Post-Disaster Communications
Overwhelmed by Ham Radio?
Every prepper knows that ham radio is an important part of surviving the aftermath of a disaster. Communications are essential to coordinate meet-ups, adapt plans, and learn more about the situation that’s going on. With the things that are going on in the world right now, emergency communication could soon be more important than ever.
But what with the testing, licensing, and all the equipment to choose from, it can seem downright overwhelming.
We’ve got you covered with our new book, The Prepper’s Guide to Post-Disaster Communication: A Simplified Guide to Ham Radio. Aden Tate has made the entire process so much easier – and no, you don’t need a degree in physics or electrical engineering to get set up. His adorable illustrations, witty wordplay, and clear, concise explanations make this book a friendly, educational read.
