Maybe the Communications Forum is not the place to say this but here goes anyway.

If things have really gone to sh*t..........maybe a prolonged interruption in the oil supply..........fighting has broken out in the streets and the military has been ordered to move against civilians, if you transmit you will die.

Just something to remember.  My experience comes from a number of years in the USN submarine service.  Subs pull breakers and fuses to eliminate even the possibility of of an accidental transmission.  (Never mind the movies that always seem to show subs actively pinging.......just doesn't happen when subs are on patrol.)

Consider passive means of communications such as the Hobo code above if a worst case scenario has occured.
