Getting Ready for that Next ‘Big One’, Part 1


Cisco the blogging cat here…

Well, so far we here on Cape Cod have been relatively lucky regarding the weather… Tropical storm Irene only brought down a few trees and interrupted electrical service for a few days… But, you just never know… (Remember the Blizzard of ’78?)

Yeah, that was a beauty… not!

So, as a sort of public service series, we here at Harwich Spirits Shoppe (we’re always looking out for you!) are going to suggest some equipment you might want to have on hand for that next ‘Big Blow’.

Let’s start with communication… Below is the Motorola MH230-R

This is your basic 22 channel hand-held set, and boasts a 20+ mile range. (Heads up on the distance issue… We’re sure that on a flat, dried lake bed, the unit can perform as advertised, but in the real world of hills and buildings, I’d reduce that number significantly. Still… for the intended purpose of local emergency communication, ) Add to that, you get the famous Motorola quality, and I think you’ve got a winner. We used ours several times during Irene, and were darned glad to have them…

Stay tuned for more…

Prepped by the racks… Are you?
