HF radio may well be useful, using either voice, cw, or digital in the last year or months before the pole shift if there is disruption of the Internet. Post pole shift HF radio will probably be useless for long distance communication due to the changes caused by changes to the upper atmosphere by the 12th's passing. Who knows how long it will take before things up there settle down to the extent that HF propagation as we know it will be able to again exist. Along the same line, our satellites will no longer exist, so no long distance VHF/UHF communication that way either.
