Many already have GMRS and UHF two way radios. Here we provide information to help organize neighborhood awareness and safety benefits with Neighborhood Watch Radio.

There's nothing to buy here, no fees, no personal registration, we require no group member information, no email addresses. This web provides a FREE public service urging you to Neighbor-Up, Radio-Up for awareness, quick neighbor communications for safety, cohesion and violent and property crime protection in the neighborhood.

"Neighborhood Watch Radio brings the instant alert and group communications.
It's here, it's inexpensive, and it's the best

neighborhood informal control, and Police formal control."

From the National Sherriff's Association:
esearch has concluded that crime is higher in 'socially disorganized areas' marked by weakened informal control due to an erosion of shared norms. . . . Since formal control organizations (specifically law enforcement) cannot be in all areas at one time, informal control by residents is necessary if that community is to experience low crime rates."

Later Battery Technology

For years the battery technology has been first Nickel Cadmium, NiCad batteries from 60+ years back. Then Nickel Metal Hydride, NiMH, which today is common in these inexpensive GMRS radios. Maximum capacity of these rechargeable battery systems is 600 mAh to 700 mAh. At most about 10 hours with little transmitting.

Lithium Ion core NIMH and rechargeable alkaline AA size batteries are  available in capacities of 2500 mAh to upgrade some GMRS radios. This provides a big improvement on the order of 3X to 4X operational time.

The Motorola radios, similar to the NMR350R below require little folded 11/4  inch aluminum foil strips under base of the two outside batteries folded slightly to make contact with the battery door metal charging tabs. The 3mm or wider copper desoldering braid also works for this purpose. Tape under makes sure no short to battery shell.
