Emergency radio in Baja

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.

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
