A good UHF radio forms part of any integral 4WD, caravan, or touring setup. Used for keeping in touch with others in a convoy, warning others on a track of upcoming dangers, monitoring highway activity or contacting a roadhouse, or in the worst-case scenario, calling for help, a UHF radio is a simple yet effective method of communication in the outback, high-country or even in the city.
With a choice of fixed units that can be mounted inside a vehicle, van, or building, and aerials for mounting on bullbars or roofs, you can set up a powerful base for communication. Team this up with a handheld UHF radio and you've got a full system for local area communications.
When it comes to emergency situations though a Personal Locator Beacon, or PLB, will send a signal for help no matter where you are. It's a device you can keep in the car and hope to never use, but if you ever need it you'll be glad you had it.
