I am a ham with family that lives in the cascadia subduction zone in the Pacific Northwest. A very severe quake is possible. I would like to find an easy to use receiver for them. Neither is a ham. Looking for suggestions. I think 12v a plus.
I would get them an 11 meter radio as well. When hurricane Sandy came in and took out the power, landlines, internet and cell phone towers, the only non hams who were still able to communicate and call for help were the ones who had CB radios.
