Third_Uncle_Eno: what the heck is a "debris ball" ??/in prairies Canada. currently +5 and raining lightly.
AlHarris31: 3 years ago, when the big tornado hit Tuscaloosa, AL, there was a huge debris ball.
Livingroom: dittybopper: Pokey.Clyde: dittybopper: Even something as simple as having a couple of FRS handheld radios you can pass out to family members or neighbors can make a big difference in the aftermath.Spot on there. Plus, most have access to weather radio and many can be recharged either by built-in hand crank, or the cigarette lighter in your car. Personally, one of mine has AM/FM/weather/FRS/GMRS along with a built in flashlight and a hand crank to recharge it if no other power source is available.Pfft.[i60.tinypic.com image 800x600]all thats fine, but ill keep this, its cheaper:[kd0bik.com image 320x480]
Pokey.Clyde: dittybopper: Pfft.i60.tinypic.comYeah, well....I bet mine's much more portable ;)

So in an emergency I could use it not only on the 2 ham bands it covers (2 Meters and 440 MHz), but also FRS/GMRS frequencies, Marine band, and on VHF and UHF business and public safety frequencies like police, fire, and EMS, so long as they aren't digital.
