The list author says: "Hello All! As the enemies of America continue to look at different ways to take us out of the picture, it is essential that you are prepared for the possibily of an Electro Magnetic Pulse. Here's a little background:
If a nuclear device were to be detonated in the upper atmosphere, over the United States, the EMP could potentially affect the entire continental US. This means that electronics, unless they are protected at the time of the EMP, would be rendered useless. This would completely alter life as we know it.
Now, there are many other lists out there for surviving in an emergency/apocolypse and I encourage you to check those out as well and plan accordingly. (One item you should consider is cash, as ATMs will not be operable) This list, however, will only focus on the vital electronics that you will be sure to need in our newly discovered stone age.
It should also be noted that there are other items, similar to the ones in this list, of higher quality throughout Amazon.com. A major concern to me, in creating this list, was to compile items that met that synergy between price and quality. At this time, an EMP is not eminent and will HOPEFULLY never occur, however if it does you would have prepared accordingly...on a budget."
"Use this short wave, battery operated radio to find stations in other parts of the counrty, or the world, that may not be affected by an EMP. There are many other SW radios available, however, this one is inexpensive and compact."
