What Types Of Radio Comms Can We Use?

Our overall recommendation goes to the German-made… Sig Sauer Romeo Zero Red DotDue to a combination of its low price, technical qualifications, overall strength, and versatility. To cap off this choice, you get the Sig Sauer Unlimited Lifetime Guarantee. It’s a ‘stand-out’ in a hotly contested field.

Enter the world of two-way radios. Most hunters, hikers, and overlanders are likely aware and maybe even familiar with the compact radios available today, but do they really understand the capabilities and limitations of radio communications. What Is Radio?I grew up in a house where my dad worked in all manner of electronics, TV, military communications and instrumentation.

However, the miracle of radio and TV sounds and sights was really summed up very easily by me as “FM”; freakin’ magic. Without getting into the real technical stuff radio can be broken down into three parts: transmitter, receiver, and antenna. The transmitter generates a signal that carries our speech.

The antenna turns the signal into energy that travels through space as a radio wave. The receiver converts the radio wave back to speech so the person we are talking to can understand it. See, Freakin’ Magic!Fortunately for us, all of the components are housed in handy gadgets called transceivers.

What Types of Radio Comms Can We Use? Today there are really three types of radio we can access for our outdoor adventures. CB RadioCitizen Band radios are most commonly found in vehicles and are still popular with those in the trucking industry, farming, and logging.

The CB radio frequencies have 40 channels and are generally reliable over a range of several miles. Vehicle and handheld units are widely available. Big safes handle better in fires and against burglars. Pretty much the whole reason you’re buying the safe in the first place!

5. Protect Your Guns Inside the SafeMake sure you take precautions to protect your guns once they’re inside the safe. Protect against humidity. Take the slings off a rifle so that they don’t get hung up and knock other guns over inside the safe when moving things around.

Make sure you don’t allow ammunition to corrode inside the chambers of guns, permanently damaging them. Think ahead and try to anticipate problems as you are in the planning process is that you know how you will tackle them. 6. Use the SafeThis may seem like a given, but it’s important.

Many people by safes and never use them. It’s not acceptable for you to leave guns out, even if you are cleaning them, unattended where people can get at them. Especially, a loaded firearm used for home defense. In all but the rarest of cases, guns are subject to burglary and theft by unauthorized users and you will be held both personally and ethically responsible if anything happens as a result.

7. Securable vs. AccessibleTypically, the more secure you make the gun the less accessible you make it. This brings up an interesting discussion on how secure your guns actually need to be. They need to be as secure as the greatest threat you think you will experience.

Meaning, if you live in a bad neighborhood where home invasions are common you need to have your gun more accessible. You are more likely to need your firearm in the middle of the night. At least compared to someone who lives in a different neighborhood.

It does work best for smaller guns, and my Walther PPS disappears into it and into my waistband. It’s made from an ultra-soft neoprene material that doesn’t rub or chafe and is quite cool concerning temperature. You’ll naturally sweat a little extra where the gun sits, and that’s okay because the material doesn’t absorb the sweat and the holster encases the gun so it’s well protected from the sweat.

I was shocked at how just friction could carry the weapon and keep it in place all day every day. It works, and it does remain comfortable throughout the day. The design makes it easy to take off and on convenient to store when not carried.

It Is Not.

Talk To Firefighters

Here’s a look at some of the best rangefinders on the market today across a variety of price points and applications. 1. VersatilityThe ability to use the scope both night and day is a really essential factor to consider while selecting a night vision scope.

The inconvenience of having to re-zero a rifle constantly as you switch between night and day is tiresome. Instead, if you are going to use one rifle for everything find a scope that will do both or find one that can be fitted to your standard optic to give it night vision abilities.

1. DurabilityNight vision scopes are made up of tiny and fragile parts that are prone to get damaged easily. If you are investing hundreds of dollars in an air rifle scope, you’ll need to get one that’s durable and long-lasting. It should withstand recoil as well as any harsh condition subjected to it.

To ensure great value for money, make sure that the scope you buy is rugged and sturdy. Cheap Night Vision Air Rifle Scopes FAQs- Are night vision air rifle scopes also used during the day? For some, yes. This depends on the technology used. A century ago horse and buggies went away and today it may be cameras/optics and their manufacturing companies.

The shocking truth is that since at least the 1960’s optics companies bought mass lots of lens from the cheapest sources and that was usually Japan which made some of the finest optics in the world so your German made scope or American made scope probably had Japanese lenses in it. In recent years Japan moved its optical production to China and I once watched a Chinese news program and on the same street there was Nikon and Cannon making Chinese lens not only for scopes but for copiers, cameras etc, etc. Japan of course still owns these companies.

I might add most scopes now have Chinese made lenses in them although few companies make this known to the consumer. I might add when I bought my Hyundai car everyone laughed at me for buying a car made in Korea but I laughed at them and told them Hyundai’s first car, the pony, had a Japanese power-train.

It turned out to be one of the most reliable cars I ever owned and I have been laughing at my friends ever since. Yes we live in a global economy like it or not and even if most people know little about how everything interrelates.
