Wireless in the wilderness and why you need to - posted 5 years ago

You missed the least-expensive alternative. Amateur radio. A technician license is not expensive and there's no requirement for morse code. New 5w handhelds out of China are very inexpensive and reliable. In Western States with a good repeater system you can get out almost anywhere and reach someone. Also great to use MURS instead of those horribly cheap Motorola/Midland radios sold at Cabela's and other stores that advertise great distance but never deliver. A license is good for 10 years and covers simple electrical theory.
