Practical Prepping Podcast is for everyday people.Helping you become prepared for whatever emergencies come our way. Where gear is good, but knowledge is better, because the more you know, the less you have to carry. Whatever the emergency, natural disaster, or man-made events which may disrupt daily life from minutes to months... from running out of gas, getting snowed in, going through a hurricane or tornado, even an extended SHTF event, we all need to be prepared. The government isn't coming to help. WE ARE ON OUR OWN!Family friendly listening, as we promise to keep it clean! We don's do bunkers with years of supplies in order to repopulate the earth after TEOTWAWKI. We aren't preparing to survive a nuclear war (Probably wouldn't want to survive that one.) We do prepare to survive the actual threats that we are most likely to face, and we want to help you get prepared for the threats that you will most likely face. We'll keep it practical. That's why it is called "Practical Prepping Podcast"Website: produced and provided by:

In episode #13 we do a review of the most popular radio in prepper circles, probably for the very low cost of the radios. However, the stock "rubber duck" antenna is the cause of frustration for many who have purchased this radio. A simple antenna upgrade increases the performance of this radio greatly. Nagoya makes several which are very appropriate for this radio, but be careful, there are a lot of counterfeits out there. We'll tell you how to tell the difference in the genuine and the counterfeits.Links mentioned in the podcast:www.baofengtech.comEmail us at:info@practicalprepping.infoOur website:www.practicalprepping.infoFind us on FacebookPractical PreppingCheck out Jonica's Bakery On The Lake for some awesome Christmas goodies shipped directly to your door.See some beautiful custom monogrammed gifts, Christmas Shirts and baby items at Linden Lane Designs.
