Grid Down Scenario: How Do We Communicate With Loved Ones and Receive Info?
Grid Down Scenario =

Cell Phones - Down
Land Lines - Down
Internet - Down
Cable TV - Down
Antenna TV - Down
Satellite TV - Down

Now what?

Jump in your car and tune the radio for local news broadcasts on the AM and/or FM dial.

Dead air or static...

How many of us are prepared to wake up tomorrow with no phone, no internet, no TV, no nothing!

Practical discussion for life saving communications if they do take the grid down.

It could very well be something we all face in the not so distant future.

Actually, anything with wire in it will fail.

Your cars and houses will burn down.

Carrington event proved that.

When the Sun finally repeats that shot, the entire "1st world" will burn down.

The smoke will blot out the sun for years.

That would be my guess. Many hams have created faraday cages to protect their gear. Or have spare transceivers in one.

Grid down meaning no electricity I am assuming. Depends on whether electronics are fried. If electronics are fried, the entire world stops functioning and we start over. For most people, this would be the end.

If electricity is just down for some other reason, terrorism, or something, I'd get on my ham radio using the marine battery, and talk to people around the world and see what's going on.

I would visit my Dad and my mother in law to make sure they're ok. My dad would have visited my brother to make sure he's OK (he's always needed guidance).

Think pony express (not kidding).

Pen & paper & sooner or later SOMEBODY will be heading in that direction. Make sure to date your letters because you don't know how long it will take to get there.

It'll be a mostly volunteer network I assume.

Maybe need to add (on the envelope) the closest MAJOR intersection nearest the destination.
