My Jeep is our "bug out" vehicle so it is stocked and ready to go. Our "daily driver" cars only have the bare minimum; energy bars, jerky, granola and water for 72 hours, IFAK, LED flashlight, headlamp and extra batteries, glow sticks, survival blankets, fire starter kit and fixed blade knife.
I need to pickup two new handheld radios since I made the mistake of vacuum sealing my Midland 75-822 CB Radios with batteries in them, a $250 mistake.

That's pretty impressive for a "bare minimum" inventory!! I would love to see the list in the bug out vehicle, however, the server might crash if you post that big of a message

As for radios, a lot of folks have been investing in the Baofeng UV-5R Plus models. I love mine and am buying a couple more to replace my FRS radios. They transmit on pretty much any frequency (except CB) and also monitor a lot of the public service frequencies such as fire, forest service, etc. I use mine as a scanner, HAM radio, work radio, FRS radio and MURS radio. For less than $40 bucks, you cannot beat it! Link here: [Click Here]

It comes with a long lasting NIMH battery and drop in charger which works very well. If you will be using them for emergency purposes, then you should invest in the AA battery pack for that radio. Link here: [Click Here]

Can't say enough about the bang for the buck on these radios. Nothing comes close for the price.

Thanks for the radio link, I paid twice that for a crappy handheld CB a few years ago. Do you need a Amateur Radio license (technician?) to operate the radio in an emergency?

I think the general rule is that if you have a life threatening emergency then you can use any radio on any frequency in order to summon help. Your best bet would be to get your HAM license so you know the way of the land and also get to know a lot of great folks! Getting your license is inexpensive and the local Big Bear Amateur Radio Club (BBARC) is a GREAT bunch of peeps. There are several of them here on SCM. They schedule training and testing sessions often. Im sure someone here can provide details on the next sessions. With good radio equipment available for under $40.00 it really makes good sense to get your ticket.

Also, the test is not very difficult at all. If I remember correctly, you can study the actual test questions and answers online - there's something like a pool of 300 questions and they use 36? of them on the actual test. You can take practice tests online as well. There were even a couple members on here that got a perfect score on their ham tests.

Some years ago I looked into getting my license but I got sidetracked with coaching my daughters' AYSO soccer teams. My daughters are aging out of AYSO so maybe I'll have some time to find a local group and study up for the test.

I've been studying for the last 2 weeks, about 30 minutes a day, using the interactive hamtestonline.com and am totally ready for the next tech exam day. It's not that hard, just some basic memorization. As to unlicensed people transmitting on ham frequencies, it is allowed only if a person or property is in grave jeopardy AND no other regular form of communication is available. It was one of the questions in the exam question pool.
