"The Net has been down for days now. Nothing good can come of this."
"So just use the radio."
"Doesn't work like that, we don't have one."
"What do you mean, you don't have a radio? How can you not have a radio? There are no servers, there is no mail, there is no telephone, the satellites were shot down... There is Nothing BUT Radio!"
"Just exactly where have you been the last forty five years? Cellular networks man. Better than radio in every way. Don't need big transmission towers, not prone to static, and sms is non-synchronous. If the guy at home is away from the radio - no message is received A text you can read whenever you want, and remains a note in stressful situations. If you can find some transmitters - not too hard since service trucks are grounded at act as Faraday cages - its easy to set up and easier to communicate."
"So everything about reanimates you ever need to know is expressed in a few dozen words?"
"Whiskey Tango Foxtrot, Whiskey Delta Tango Charlie Charlie, Golf Tango Foxtrot Oscar."
"Foxtrot Uniform to you as well!"
"What was that - your breaking up."
