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.
