    Greetings from Long Island

    Ok, so I'm here on CB radio forum. Never thought I would but here I am.

    When "Smokey and the Bandit" came out, I put a CB in my car. Don't judge, I was high school LOL. I thought they died a long time ago but apparently they didn't.

    So why am I here? A few reason:
    • I drive a lot for my business and there are still plenty of areas without mobile coverage in case of emergencies
    • I'm involved with the scouts and I think it could be useful tool for us when we're off grid
    • Thanks to Hurricane Sandy, I've learned how vulnerable our modern communication can be.
    There are certainly other (possibly better) radio options for each scenario. I may add some of those to my arsenal down the road, but getting a CB seems like a good start.
    • Inexpensive
    • Easy to use/no license
    • Most common of the types used. Communicating in an emergency is only works if you can find someone else at the other end
    So I'm here to refresh and get some ideas.
