Are you prepared for emergency communications? Or do you have a portable radio/antenna system you can use for portable use? If you don't have such a system, you may want to consider the field-capable radio/antenna project used by John Jacobs (NY2MC). His "CommsToGo Radio And Backpack Antenna" seems ideally suited for portable or emergency use. In this video, John demonstrates the components of his system, including how to launch the antenna into nearby trees. This system would make a reliable and simple "Go-Kit" for local emergencies, Field Days, or for just casual operating at the nearest public park.
