Just wanted to put it out there for people exploring the outdoors in baja, whether hiking, biking, prerunning or camping. If you need emergency help, there has been a new initiative being put out by Baja California emergency services and search and rescue. It is called Canal 7-7 for use on frs radios. I know most in our community use a vfh radio when out, but maybe carrying an inexpensive handheld can help and be just another backup when out exploring Baja.


Canal 7-7 BC

remember with radio transmission distance is often much more a function of antenna than power. If you are trying for emergency comm get to the highest ground with the clearest 360 view.
You can even carry a rolled up emergency antenna that makes a huge difference in your range
