HAM Radio Open Discussions • Re: Just returned from the mountain cabin…

May 23, 2017 orangetom1999 0

In case I have not posted this as far as equipment updates…

I have picked up a new Ameritron 811H linear Amplifier. This amplifier is capable of boosting the radio output from 100 watts PEP to some 800 watts PEP.

I wanted to have it on hand in case conditions between me and my friend out in Tennessee get verily rough with static crashes and other noise thusly blocking out his signal.

So far, outside of initially trying it out, I have not used it. We have mostly been running only the power in the radios we have …100 watts or less.

We have even dialed down our power to some 50 watts and still made the trip ..but we think that with the weather warming up….the atmosphere will produce more static crashes along with more summer storms, lightening, thunder etc…all across this nation.

I have this power on tap..but so far we have been trying to use the minimum power we need to make the trip. We have, in particular, been working along these avenues…minimum power needed…but both of us have extra power/linear amplifiers on tap if needed.

We try to find the quieter portion of the Ham Radio bands in which to operate..thus needing less power. We try to avoid the heavily trafficked bands.

Thanks,
Orangetom

While the internet helps many people in their thinking….there is an additional point which was extensively driven home to me during the Obama Administration.

Though this has been forming unto todays position for a long long time..and seems somewhat to be taking a back seat now during the Trump Administration….do not let your guard down…this will return with a vengeance under the logic and reason of todays educated, enlightened, illuminated leaders trying to substitute …ala the olde political shell game….for our rights as Americans.

My point to keep in mind…always…is this…

Internet or not…

If you cannot be trusted with a gun and or ammunition…you will never be trusted with a vote….they will try under “enlightened thinking” to scam the public out of both..and keep them in “Name only. You can translate that as rigging both systems..gun ownership as well as the vote.

In name only you cannot be trusted with your religion…

In name only …you cannot be trusted with your own monies.

In name only …you cannot be trusted with your children…to teach your beliefs and thinking patterns to your children.

Here are five indexes in which you cannot be trusted… and must therefore be properly herded like cattle into the right chutes…programmed…controlled regulated…no independent thinking or actions allowed…only Xerox copies of the same pabulum.

These American principles took a very fast and deep dive into the toilet under the Obama Admininstration…do not ever think that this kind of thing will not come back ..particularly under the pseudo leadership of “Enlightened Educated Illuminated Men.”

I am talking here about standard issue “Herd Mentality” used and misused to rig the whole system against the American People…one size fits all.

It is quickly reaching the point where you cannot be trusted with the internet..and steps are being taken to control and regulate this as well…because it is so obvious that the MSM is not working sufficiently to properly herd the publics beliefs and actions.

To many people are now going to the internet for their news and information..not the Television and Radio..but their phones and computers.
Someone horribly miscalculated the impact of the internet in the last election. Trump like, Jessie Ventura, was not supposed to win.

This is why controlling the internet is so important today.
They are even trying successfully today to break and Herd Fox News. Knowing this for some time….I have not trusted Fox News.

Pay attention and be careful..even of the internet.
Keep in mind what I have outlined as to the obvious items with which you as an American cannot be trusted in your own country…while demanding tolerance from you….as well as your children/grandchildren.

This pattern of operation I am describing by government is a 180 degree flip flop of what the founders envisioned and wanted for the American People.
This pattern of operation I am describing by “Enlightened, Illuminated, Educated Men” is in its reversed nature..run amok..also called by some people in the know..as Demonic. Insane…a reversal of anything and everything…American.

The other proper name for thusly herding Americans against their will and over their objections….in every avenue of thinking and actions…is bondage….involuntary servitude.

And these people now want the internet too….the Deep State.

My .02,

Orangetom

Manchester Arena explosion at Ariana Grande gig kills 19 and injures 50 as cops swarm to treat wounded concertgoers

POLICE have confirmed that 19 people have died and about 50 been injured after an “explosion” at Manchester Arena sent thousands of terrified concertgoers fleeing an Ariana Grande concert.

Witnesses on social media have reported hearing a “massive bang” before screaming crowds rushed out of the venue with police confirming the explosion is being treated as a “terrorist incident”.

Time to light up the Eiffel Tower again, change your Facebook photo, and call anybody who speculates on the motives a racist

I’ve built one, as well. 2x4sfor the main framework, with racks made of lath strips and screening. Also have screening stapled to the top and 3 sides of the main framework, with a flap of screening for the front to help keep critters out. It can e used as either a drying rack, or as a storage rack for winter squashes, onions, etc.

Guns • The internet is our greatest ally

May 22, 2017 Photon Guy 0

For those of us gun rights advocates I believe the internet is our greatest ally. As we know, gun sales skyrocketed during the Obama administration what with Obama’s anti gun stance. Interestingly enough gun sales did not skyrocket during the Clinton administration they actually went down a bit from the George H. W. Bush administration and Clinton was worse than Obama when it came to being anti gun. I’ve spoken to people about this and they say its most likely because of the internet and in particular channels such as Youtube which has videos that show people using guns in a safe and productive manner and people who don’t know better come to realize that guns are just tools nothing more and what they do or don’t do depends on the hands using them. During the Clinton administration there wasn’t Youtube and the internet wasn’t what it is today. So I urge all gun fanatics and enthusiasts, post videos that show guns being used in a positive manner. We will gain yet more momentum for our cause.

A.N.T.S. • EMP and CEMP

May 22, 2017 Cadit 0

Hi All: have any one seen or heard of what the causes were for all these power outages over the past few weeks, all across the nation. Well; I was reading this article about this CEMP that took place right before all that happened. Will, we know that a CEMP is a coronel electromagnetic Pulse. But no one new about this because none of our news services aired this information. Just another thing that our news media is suppressing from the public. NASA tried to make this public, but I understand it was ignored by main stream media. So; we had thousands of people with out power for days and even weeks, some small areas still have no power at the writing of this post. Astronomer’s and others also made statements to the same coming event. But no one picked it up.

What else you may ask are they not telling us? Well; we know its not the truth, because they through that out the door a long time ago. But it is on what’s is really happening in our country. I hope that everyone listens to AmRRON/American Redoubt Net broadcast. We have to get the truth from some where, so who can you trust today? A conditioning is taking place, to make it the norm. :clap:

This is why we are referred to as the free WORLD, not Nation, but World. Where the people are in charge and not the government. That’s why they flock here in numbers. To get away from government’s like North Korea, Russia, China, Cuba and the list goes on.

And now; they don’t want our help, they want what we have and are prepared to take if necessary. By what ever means necessary. Don’t know about you, but I don’t have much, but what I do have is mine, and anyone trying to take it is going to play hell getting it. They’re trying to let the older generation (me) die off to reduce the blow-back. We still have a lot of Viet-Nam vets that want stand still.

Most of what I have read is on the mark, but others are close. Where you and I must meet is in the middle, if we are to survive. Now it would be a major mistake for the powers that be to move on anyone at this point in time, or against President Trump. What we need to be doing to making our voices heard, but not in a threating way, like votes. Because you know as well as I do that elections will be one of the first things to go, to protect those they have in office.

Like during the Clinton – Trump election, they thought they had it rapped up and was taking their toys home. But then, the unthinkable happened. The American people spoke up. While they may have got the popular vote because of the populations in a few large cities that are under their control, but the small mighty hand of the National mass, said something else. this rocked their boat, it was not foreseen and not planned for. I think that our election system is going to get and overhaul that’s not to our benefit.

So; as SunDevil put it, we must continue to appear as servants, all the while building a resistance. Our vote was that resistance last time, I doubt it will work a second time. Prepare in the shadows, and suppress bad change in the open. There are to many of us to deal with at this time, we may see other well know known preppers and survivalist removed that are considered a threat. People like Rand Paul, Ted Nugent, Trump, The NRA, and other 2nd Amendment Supporters. The first impeachment of a Supreme Court Justice and more. :shifty:

Yes. These points are all valid. Remember that the Utah Data Center and nine other government data centers are specifically retaining information on individuals through time and space. The activities by individuals that are currently legal will change when an authoritarian ruler comes to power. These data centers will provide all of the information necessary to find and capture individuals who are deemed a threat to these authoritarian rulers. Therefore, it is wise to pose as little threat as possible. Do your homework and become the least common threat. Hide and conceal. Your life will soon depend upon it.

Luckily it is not that hard to get people interested in preparedness in Alaska, our way of life kind of demands it because of our limited infrastructure and weather. I have found that there are lots of people who are preppers here, but they do not call themselves preppers. Just about any master gardener class or food preservation class is about half full of people who would be considered preppers other places, but here it is just life. Places like The Folk School in Fairbanks offer a full line of prepper related classes (from apple tree grafting to blacksmithing to woodworking) but they seem to shy away from the “prepper” label, and their classes are always full. The challenge you will face is getting people to get over the “prepper” label, the rest kind of sells itself up here. Hopefully it goes well for you, and the Alaska forum needs some new content as well.
