    I know amateur radio operators who have emergency equipment stashed in containers designed to keep the radiation out so they have a backup in case literally everything else they have goes down.

      smart idea but but maybe even better to leave the cities if everything is going to be dark for seasons.

        Radio works outside the city too, and most of the time I see people tossing a HF mobile rig in there. A solid one of those can run 100w off a car battery and if you can get a random wire antenna over a 35-40 foot high branch you’d probably be able to cover the country on the lower bands so long as the ionosphere isn’t too irregular. You can even get car appropriate sized antennas for the higher frequency, shorter range bands.
