Is your station ready for the next outage? With more storms and section of the country having rolling blackouts make me wonder if the power goes out could you still get on the air. Below is a link to a presentation take give a good talk about getting your station for the next black out. How much does it cost and what equipment might be good for you to get.
The next HF or VHF net you check in try working the net on your backup power supply. Do you have a mobile radio in your car? Do you know how to call for help if your outside cellular phone range? When you travel do you lookup the frequencies and PL for the repeater’s near where your traveling. Do you have a battery eliminator cord and/or spare battery for your HT?
