3 options for Redundant Communication Plans for any contingency | Rural North Carolina.

Communication is highly important.  Granted, for this deaf girl, it would be a difficult obstacle to overcome in a survival scenario.

When SHTF, I would have to generate sort of verbal codes that I can quickly hear and understand with others, especially if we are going to be communicating via redundant communication.

These three options are probably the best options for the Prepper who believes we all need communication to connect us in our own terms.

I’m going to add another form of communication.  It’s not redundant and is irrelevant to radio communication, but it’s something people should consider.  Itwould be hand signs (especially American sign language for me).  The hearing learning those signs can not only just communicate with the deaf, but keep their communications from other hostile hearing that do not know that form of communication.

I gave this blog post by Rural North Carolina 4 1/2 stars.  The rating is based on this:

1) Many people do not consider communication BEYOND cell phones, texting, e-mailing, and social media.  It’s a good idea to really consider your options and INVEST in them.

2) It would not be helpful to those with hearing problems, which is something we have to account for ourselves.  If we can hear enough sounds to create verbal codes that others can use to you over the radio, that’s good.  If not, well, we depend more on visual and vibrational cues.

    Thank you for the kind words. I think knowing sign language is a great thing and one we should all know. I did not even think about communication for those that have trouble hearing or seeing. I believe that the best way for a deaf person or hard of hearing would be morse code with a light. I am planning on learning morse code and we all can use the light path method. Anyone that has checked a pre OBDII car or truck for codes is familiar with a soundless code.

    I will try and keep the limitations in mind in future articles. Thanks for bringing it to my attention.

    Never heard of pre-OBDII. That’s definitely awesome to know. Oh, you don’t have to focus on limitations! For those of us who are considered to have limitations, we just have to be even more creative than our hearing/seeing counterparts. That’s kind of the fun part. We also have to learn to trust the RIGHT people, which is harder to do for two reasons.

    1) Trusting doesn’t come easy in survival scenarios.
    2) For those of us who trust easy (me), we pick the wrong people more often than we care to admit.

    This is creating a lot more ideas right here!! Thanks for engaging me in this communication.
