The Los Angeles Hiking Group Message Board › Walkie-Talkie use during hikes
|A former member||
I hiked the first time last week, on Mt Baldy and I am hooked on hiking. Cellular phones do not work there. I wonder if anyone thought about a general walkie talkie channel for all US hikers anywhere to use to cal for help? WT now range to 16 miles and surely work in mountains and forest. Team can have own WT on team channel for team calling but can have a member on common emergency channel to be ready to give assistance to other people in difficulty.
