  • Using Emergency Radios in a Pandemic

    The current Covid-19 pandemic is testing the resolve of the entire world. Two way radios, and particularly amateur, FRS. GMRS and emergency weather radios are suddenly in high demand, so much so that it is becoming increasingly difficult to keep some of them in stock. Why the sudden surge in personal and emergency radios?

    In this short clip from episode 148 of our long-running, award nominated podcast, The Two Way Radio Show, Danny, Anthony and Rick discuss this uptick in interest for these radios and its significance within the new reality of the Covid-19 pandemic.

  • Fair weather? Now is the time to get a weather radio

    It's a beautiful day. It's bright and sunny, the wind is calm, and there is not a cloud in sight. It's a perfect time to sit back, relax, put some burgers on the grill and just enjoy the great outdoors.

    Sure, its fine now, but what about tomorrow, or the day after that, or next week? It's summer. Storms can crop up suddenly, anywhere, anytime with little notice. Yes, the National Weather Service has no advisary out. There is no storm activity in the Altantic and nothing going on in the Gulf of Mexico. But all that can change anytime.

    Now is the perfect time to get a weather radio. Why? because right now, you can. Right now, you have time.

    Remember the old joke about the leaky roof? When asked why the homeowner doesn't fix it, he says that he can't because it's raining. When asked why he doesn't fix it when it isn't raining, he responds that he doesn't need to because at that time, it isn't leaking.

    There is a right time for everything. Waiting until a storm approaches isn't the best time to buy a weather radio or otherwise prepare for an emergency. The best time to get one is when there isn't a storm currently overhead or quickly approaching.

    Don't be the guy caught in the rain with the leaky roof. While it's nice and calm, make the most of a beautiful day. Get a weather radio, prepare an emergency kit, and have an emergency plan ready. The best time to do it is now.
