Ham Radio network communications. Granted, perhaps this is not the most mobile, but isolated groups could find them indispensable.

I have a set of Cobra walkie talkies, because there was a time before cell phones. And when there would be situations of road trips (short or long), it would be easier to tell the car behind or in front of us that we're pulling over for gas, restroom, etc. Great for concerts, hiking trips or to amusement parks to keep contact with your large party groups.

I spent the day today in my yearly company ordered safety class. It was actually pretty interesting this year, as they focused alot on terrorism (following all of the "Occupy" stuff from last year.)
The instructors were talking about how every person should invest in a good walkie talkie. One that can reach five miles or so. He argues that in the case of a real disaster (flood, earthquake) the cel towers will probably not be working. And in the case of a man made disaster, local law enforcement can shut down any and all cel towers. Walkie talkies will be the only way to communicate over distance.
It occurs to me that this is a good rule for a zombie crisis as well. As power to towers fails and communication gets disrupted, a good walkie talkie could be a life saver.
