Some of our readers are familiar with REACT, a kind of a citizens emergency communications network. Along with amateur radio operators, Red Cross Communications, and FEMA, these folks are mostly volunteers who are available to help in times of distress. They do some good work and it may be of interest to you.
One of the really special things they are currently offering is a top quality Midland FRS radio for just $10.99 including shipping! This radio includes both FRS and low power GMRS channels which has some interest to us as we are in the process of developing a community alerting program to be announced in early 2009. We'll be telling you more about this soon, but in the meantime, you may want to pick up some of these radios at an exceptional price.
Additional information is available at www.reactintl.org/REACT-Radios.
By the way, we wish your and yours a very Merry Christmas!
