Go Tenna

Postby morningcoffee » Tue Feb 06, 2018 2:09 am

We have just ordered a 4 pack of these. The network appears to be expanding and they are upgrading to allow more "hops". Anyone else tried these yet?

Unless I'm missing something, it seems like a high cost for short-range service. Good idea, but until it catches on (if?) I'll do without the expense.

You are right, not everybody would spend money on communications. You can always yell out your back door or get a couple of tin cans and some string. I put value on a people powered system that is more secure. It's all about choices. :D

I too believe in communication; there are many options. Some prefer ham radio. Like you said, it's all about choices...

And one of us has a radio license so we have that option as well. But a lot of people don't want to spend the extra money and go through the licensing process. At some point the license might not matter, but for now it does and a "friendly" option could be the Go Tenna which is cheaper than the radio setup and licensing and might allow for a larger group for communications.

This was just a feeler to see if other people are interested. The Go Tenna system has some decent 25% and 10% discounts available that might be worth exploring if someone was so inclined.

You make a good point. In a SHTF scenario however, I'm not concerned about licensing; as I see this as 'emergency use only.' I respect the law, but circumstances dictate action. Few will starve to death before breaking into a grocery store that's full of food. If I find myself in need of communication, I will utilize whatever means at my disposal. Preparations will be focused on the most efficient and cost-effective method.
