How Can I Stay Connected During a Natural Disaster?

Episode 1634 (14:30)

Luke from Abaco Islands, Bahamas
Iridium

Lou is from the Bahamas and he's looking for a way to stay connected after a natural disaster. Leo says Satellite Phones are a good option. They aren't cheap, but if he can rent them, he can stay connected when he needs it. But a more affordable thing to do is to become a ham radio operator. He can get a handheld device and become a part of the emergency action network. Then when he needs to make a call, have a ham route the radio through to a phone. That's both affordable and valuable when there's an emergency. Check out the Amateur Radio League. He can also check out the TWiT Show HAM NATION
