Looking for Advice on Rescue Communication 2-Sep-2012 At 7:30:37 PM jgoding
Thanks all for your thoughts. Yes it has been a while.

I've gone with a PLB as the last resort for a rescue.

One of these - they look great:

nice and light, reliable and will guide any search party in the last little bit of their locating search. There are some good videos on their website explaining the difference between SPOT and PLB technology which sealed the deal for me.

I'm still interested in a radio or two, both for communicating while climbing in windy conditions on longer routes as well as communicating with other climbers or walkers in the (remote) area. Does anyone have any words of wisdom on good reliable radios and what to get? 1watt? 5watt? Uniden?
