Okay folks, we are down one phone, so looking at our family strategy for communications. We got to thinking about walkie-talkies...

I like the idea of walkie talkies, especially because the only thing holding our phones in place is emergency communications.

I also bet I could get Clover's homeschooling buddies in on this, which serves as a *much* better device than a so-called "smartphone".

So please now bombard me with information about walkie-talkies and radio stuff for families. ^_^

@maiki If you're in the US, GRMS is perfect for this.

You can even install a repeater, to widen coverage. It just requires a family member to pay $75 for a license.

Also, ham licenses, but that requires everyone to have a license. Not hard, but something to keep in minds.
