Okay folks, we are down one phone, so looking at our family strategy for communications. We got to thinking about walkie-talkies...
I like the idea of walkie talkies, especially because the only thing holding our phones in place is emergency communications.
I also bet I could get Clover's homeschooling buddies in on this, which serves as a *much* better device than a so-called "smartphone".
So please now bombard me with information about walkie-talkies and radio stuff for families. ^_^
BTW the EU/UK equivalent of PMR446 radios are widely useed by schools for on site comms; but teachers and support staff are usually very careful never to mention a students name over the air for security (especially bearing in mind schoolkids themselves could easily own a similar set of their own)
@maiki Really big cowbell? Whistles?
@maiki (...how many neighbours do you need to not annoy?)
@maiki A hill with a lake makes me think an alphorn might do the trick but they are rather unwieldy.
@artsyhonker I am on the third floor, too, so I can just have it connect from my balcony. ^_^
