Getting your message across, no matter how you do it.  FRS, GMRS, HAM, carrier pigeons, hobo signs, texting, social media, it's all good and variety ensures you'll have a way in an emergency. UF0ZS strongly encourages its members to obtain their ham or GMRS license and become familiar with how these two services work.
