How to Pack for a Weekend Camping Trip : How to Select Communication Equipment for Camping


Hi, this is John Stewart and this is how to
select and pack your communication needs for a weekend camping trip. You might ask why
you want to take communication sources when you go on a trip, but they can be very very
handy in case of an emergency. You can take something as simple as your cell phone. Most
everybody has one. What you want to do with your cell phone is keep it dry in your pack,
so put it in a zip lock back to keep it dry. Before you go on the trip, though, take your
cell phone, plug in some numbers of some local emergency services. If you’re at a state park,
plug in the ranger’s number, plug in the local EMS service, local police station, and always
make sure you have these just in case of an emergency you can contact people so they know
where you are and they can come help you. Other forms of communications you can take
are walkie-talkies, two way radios, frequency radios, these things are, walkie-talkies are
going to be for you and other people that are within two to three miles of you. They
don’t have a broad spectrum to where they can pick up long distant talking. So they’re
real good for talking to people close to you. Frequency radios are going to pick up frequencies
from all around you. They normally pick up a wider range so you can hear people that
you might not expect to be hearing so this way you can contact people in case of an emergency.
So this is how to select and pack your communication needs for a weekend camping trip.
