Two Way Communication
For Off Road and Remote Travel.


Two way communications is essential anywhere you go.

If something goes wrong you can't fix or there is an emergency the best thing to do is call for help.

In the city's that's easy as someone will more than likely be near with a mobile phone (cell phone), when out of the city a mobile phone may still have coverage but what happens when you get so far away where there is no phone coverage?

In this situation there are other ways to establish contact with civilization. For short range there is the CB/UHF radio, for longer range the HF radio is the best option, for guaranteed contact anywhere in the world at any time is the satellite phone and then there are distress beacons.


Types of two way Communication.

UHF CB Radio:

A must have for any 4 wheel driver, the best short range communication available requires no towers for short range and costs nothing to use.
