Yeah, just wait until you need to call in for an immediate first-person description of hip replacement surgery.
Your PRC319 is going to be SOL and it'll be Baofeng's time to shine.

I was making a lame joke about calling for air support as seen in the money shot.
I can call for immediate hip surgery discussion on 2M 24/7, but an air lift, not so much.

yeah I've packed radios before for a few days, mainly for fun, but I have wondered about their "emergency utility".

Actually, I think the most useful thing if ever stranded (civilian wise) would be a KX99 tuned to 121.5. There's usually someone up above wherever you are.

Ok, so the next video that radio video linked to was this.
It wasn't until I got to 4:27 that it actually seemed useful and has application for ham QSOs and might be worthy of a place in the go box.

I'm always worried that someone will double with me about their feedline problems because they can't climb a ladder to fix it anymore, while I'm stranded somewhere bleeding. Then, ignore my emergency traffic and tell everyone that I'm some joker, and I'll get ignored, bleed out, and die with a radio that could have saved my life, if someone cared to stop talking about their poor health. The last thing I'll hear is someone yelling back at me about how they hurt their back once, while I'm paralized from the waist down, loosing a pint of blood every 3 minutes, with no TQ in reach.

Sometimes we're our own worst enemy.

On the emcomm note, I sometimes carry my 817 when I go backpacking. But given the number of people that flat out ignore QRP signals or randomly stomp on CW signals it really makes me wonder about the utility of it in an emergency situation. I suppose if I had an actual comm plan where a few stations would listen for me would make sense but it seems difficult to set that up with folks.

This is purely anecdotal, given the short amount of time I've been in this hobby, but I've been pleasantly surprised several times when I've sent out a short blip, never even intending to get a response. It has happened on VHF, and on HF, where I've found an empty spot to send out a short test (typically listening for myself on a WebSDR), and someone came back with something like "I saw your signal [presumably on a panadaptor] and heard you here in XXX".

When I was spinning a dial, finding active signals felt like such a random event. Now that I can see everything within a particular band, and all I have to do is click on one, it increased my confidence a little bit that someone will hear me if I ever need to send a distress signal. I know I also listen to a lot of things that I never respond to - but would if they were in distress.

Yeah, like I said I've wondred. With CW I think it would be far easier with the 817, but ya never know. Then again deploying an effective antenna out in the wilds if one is injured etc would be the larger part of the problem IMO.

I want one, just the music made feel like first tier operator.
Don't think I'd scale a wall as in 3:08.
Also liked being used as raft paddles-I 'raft' when I watched it!

What was funny was my daughter was watching it over my should and when she saw the raft scene she yelled out, "Well duuhhh! It's shaped like a paddle!" I want one just for the top popper. I know a couple lady bartenders that would appreciate having one at work to keep on hand as an extra, uh, bottle opener.

I rolled my ATV last weekend out here in Az and ended up with four staples holding my scalp shut. I had my HT with me, and wondered if it would hit the local repeaters. Of course I then began wondering how much blood I was losing, and forgot about the radio all together until the ride home two hours later.

On a bright note, the radio and antenna did survive the roll over just fine!
