I'm having a hard time figuring out how to use the ham radio equipment I salvaged, so I'm getting together with Pete's communication team.

They have been up on Rib Mountain the last couple of days trying to get their ham radio sets working. Pete wants a listening post up there.

Pete's "comm crew" has been tasked with figuring out the ham radios as well as organizing the colonies' other communication networks.

That includes using the law enforcement radios we've been salvaged to set up secure communication with the colony's early warning outposts.

The outpost on top of Rib Mountain is permanent once again. Besides the listening station being set up, the highway salvage crew stays here.

Defenses are being added up here on Rib Mountain are a mix--designed for protection against both the zombies and predatory human survivors.

I'm learning a lot from Pete's "comm crew" about setting up ham radio systems. They've figured out how to set up the antennae. #zompocalypse

Being up here on top of zombie-free Rib Mt. will give these ham radios good signal line of sight, which is important for short range radio.

But of course, all are eager to listen for signals from farther away. We want to hear from other survivors of the worldwide zombie plague.
