Yes that has been brought up in previous pages. They were monitoring the radio at the first camp for a bit and used radios while in Atlanta rescuing Rick from the tank, and Rick used his special walkie talkies from his Sheriff station to communicate with someone who never showed up. Then they just completely leave walkie talkies out.
While maybe keeping them in batteries could be an issue, while at Hershel's farm they had power for lights, so could easily charge some FRS radios. I think mainly the lack of radios is to keep the drama going. Stupid writers would have a big problem if people could just check on everyone with radios instead of having to run around wildly at every paniced where is so in so.
Really people would think of radios pretty quick I think in the zpaw. I mean we are so conditioned to having cell phones and have immediate access to call people when ever we want, in zpaw people would think hey lets get walkie talkies or FRS or GMRS or CB or HAM. I mean really why were they not scanning the Ham bands while at Hershal's? If there were any survivors around they might be broad casting on HAM.
Another gripe I have, what about getting some fricken maps people! Find some maps, check out the local area for decent places.
IN the GN they don't bother with maps, even when they know something is in the area and need to find it. Instead they drive around hoping to find it, and luckily find a sign by a guy stopping and peeing on it knocked over. Go to a damn gas station and pick up a map.
