I am always on the lookout for new technology that can backup the cell phone, if a cyber war starts, know one of the first hits will be to our cell phone grid, this maybe away to at least keep in limited touch. 5 miles maybe a bit of a stretch but it should work like any other radio system in the 900 mhz range. The data should go a bit further, how much would depend on your location. I have not tested one of these yet, but would like to hear from someone that has. It seems to be a good fit for an EP team, since it basically works as a two way radio, with the added help that it has some type of encryption (probably very basic) and has its own power supply that can double as a backup supply for your phone. I am just going off the advertisement, so buyer beware, at least till we can get some better reviews on the device.
