Ham Radio Deluxe kit


There’s a second network that exists in every major city in the US, lying mostly unused, and available to anyone. With a cell-phone sized amateur radio, you can communicate dozens of miles away in an instant.

The magic lies in “repeaters” – powerful stations built by avid volunteers that boost your signal and beam it out in all directions. These repeaters are often installed at the highest point in the area, meaning that no matter where you are, many more people can hear your voice.

WORLD GONE SILENT is the easiest way to gain access to this secondary communications network that is hidden in plain sight.

You’ve done the planning, and you know WHAT to do if things go south. But how will you be sure everyone in your group is aware?

Are you pinning your hopes on your cellphone?

Amateur radio provides a way to communicate independent of our fragile cell phone networks, and provides a secondary way to reach the people you care about when traditional systems fail.

Don’t be fooled by people who say ‘just buy the book!’ or “just get a radio!”  Those guys want to keep these precious airwaves to themselves, and hope you’ll get intimidated and give up.
