In this episode, The Practical Camper discusses why you should always bring a Ham Radio when camping and tips on obtaining your Amateur Radio License.  Additionally, the Practical Camper describes the Yaesu FT-65, Baofeng UV-5R Version 2, and Yaesu Vertex VX-150 he uses when camping.

I often camp in areas that ATT, Verizon, and Sprint can’t reach. It is important to me to have contact with people outside of the campground in the event of an emergency.

Make sure you have a valid FCC license to operate on ham radio frequencies.
