    When planning your preparedness, one thing to keep in mind is having someone in another state that all of your family members know to call in the event of a disaster. Make sure that you have drilled with your family members on this so that everyone can be a little bit more as ease in case of an emergency.

    Setting up an emergency communications plan such as ham radio can also help out on this.

    Anybody can buy and monitor a ham radio; The rules allow technicians to send data (CW) on "HF". The law allows non-hams to use a ham radio if no other means of emergency communication is available.

    Phones & the internet cannot be depended upon and most state militias will have their governor's authority to take over the GMRS, & 2 meter Ham repeaters, and the digi-peaters.

    We are left with eves dropping on the 2 meter repeater networks and HF.

    Some people (so I hear :winkkiss:) have specified markings they will spray paint on their garage door to match a corresponding location they can be found at; such as an "A" for hide-out "A". This would give family and friends an idea where to find you, if you must bug-out.

    This means you and they have to know where these locations are in advance; I recommend sending them the info via regular mail. The info should include your local-radio frequencies and a visual recognition plan (1 flash answered by 3 flashes etc).
