Hi all, this is my 1st post, so bear with me please!
I only hve a home PC. No cell phone, no net book, no ipad, etc. I do have WIFI on puter to enable games on TV in other room.
Question is, what type of instrument would be good for a prolonged (more than 24 hour) power failure? I mainly need a source for news and probably for communications from home. And consider the possibility that it may be an emergency situation where I might have to be "holed up" in my baement (radiation threat) for a few days. I am prepared as much as possible for getting thru a few days as far as provisions and preparedness, except for this one issue. I don't want to be cut off from the world.
Someone told me to get an ipad that could be charged by my car, but my garage is away from the house. I have limited funds, so I need a basic way to assure communication/news in the event of a crisis.
Love this site, and TY in advance for any & all help.
