Perhaps we should focus on the baiscs first firearms, food, and medical care?
communication is more important
2 way radio?
walkie talkies are good, smartphones are great
smartphones can work with wifi etc and are nondescript
My father was in the army. he always said that the first step in conquest is taking over the radio stations.
also they include GPS and video cameras which can be good for emergency and PR respectively
I was reading the book Wardog by Al J Venter and one of the stories talks about intercepting enemy radio communications in sierra leone, editing it and rebroadcasting
causing major panic
so secure communications and keeping heads level is key
Also horses are awesome.
Attack and retreat back into the wilderness.
on your horse
Rob no offence you cant eat communication. He is right food shelter, warmth and safety or the corner stones of prepping. If you inclined try look at a few videos on you tube. Try learn TCCC tactical combat casualty care. You will face in a hostile area war like injuries. Gun shots. Burns gashing wounds
point taken, but ultimately in conflict can be impacted by low morale which is unrelated to the situation on the ground
we've had preparation, we have water tanks down here 😛
Boers have always been known for fighting in small ragtag groups.
Also try make friends with some US or European Ex Military guys on Social media. they have alot of info and maybe can help with logistics. Suggest a bug out bag with a US IFAK Individual first aid kit
most of us can go on a waterfast for a few days(week?) without much issue
You need to start documenting teh situation and build allies from across the water

http://www.meddev.co.za/ These guys sell basically everything you need for an IFAK including a hug medical back pack for soldiers
Suggest also joining suid landers
just from my readings of the mercenary history in africa in the last 50 years, communications trumps logistics, because it is a dependency of logistics. The RUF had logistics in Sierra Leone and the EO boys confused them, when they heard the RUF general saying 50 trucks were arriving and only 4 did, it demoralised the enemy
What is the name of the prank call site again that allows you to change your caller ID I think it could be usefull.
This is not military grade but works Unless you go for Motorola which will cost you more
how far does it go?
5KM give take
what about we go in the voice chat to avoid all the typing
enough to get you out of a bad area. you need to focus on getting out of cities and towns safely with your family. that is first the most important. You can worry about soldiering later.
I am in the office.
You can learn alot form you tube. I am no expert and I am not 100 prepped.
