    Tecsun shortwave radio on Amazon cheap.

    These can be nice to catch international news, odd broadcasts, and pirate radio. They are also nice in an emergency. They can be kept in a metal box to protect from emp. I have a ham transceiver that works as a receiver, but a small shortwave is cool to have. Amazon has them for cheap- around twenty bucks.

    Just get some Handi-Talkies. During SHTF, you'll want to be able to transmit as well as receive... I've got a tech ham license but realize that during SHTF, all bets are off and people are going to do what they need to do.

    Here's what I've got: http://www.ebay.com/itm/Baofeng-UV-5...gAAOSwEeFVJijh

    I just received my baofeng uv-5r in the mail earlier in the week and it is a nice handitalky. Programming isn't too hard and it works well with repeaters. I am impressed.
