May 12, 2017 Cadit 0

Greetings Everyone: From the last time I posted here, I see a lot of lookers but no comments. I have and am a member of The American Redoubt and AmRRON group. The communications that John Jacob Schmidt created is a most dire needed means of staying in touch in a grid down or emergency situation. Alone or in a group, with out communications, you’re dead in the water.

You have no idea what’s coming your way, where or which way to go/retreat. You’re the injured animal and the lions have surrounded you. Without communications; you’re blind and deaf in a world that’s gotten more dangerous. Are you sure you want to try and live that way. I’ve had old timers say; I don’t want to be on a list. Wakeup my friend, you’re already on their list. Your cell phone, all calls are recorded, emails; all emails are copied. Credit Card purchased, they have that too. So; realize, you are all ready on their list. If you want to hide tings you do, you have to think outside the box on that my friend. Purchases of items you don’t want people to know. Check or credit card, they know what you got. Cash, cash, cash; this is the only way to keep people out of your business. But don’t go pulling large amounts out of you banking accounts, this alerts them that something is going on. A little slowly at a time, build up what you need to get what you want.

So; you need to get your Technician’s license and do it now. Learn how to operate it, how to communicate with it. It’s not as easy as you think, because if you don’t know what to do and how to do it, then you’re perceived as the enemy and foe, and they will not answer you. So; get those license, and learn, NOW. :shock:

May 12, 2017 Cadit 0

Just heard that the power outages were the result of a CEMP. NASA and other organizations confirmed that it was a large CEMP that hit across the USA. They think that the areas that went down were due to poor grid conditions and grid load. A friend of mine who works in upper management and a fellow prepper, informed me that if not for the quick actions of personnel, it may have been even larger power outages. The opening of lesser switches that prevented the continual load demand were opened to keep a cascade effect from taking place. At the time we spoke there were six locations that was effected.

Also; the power companies and the government believe that a much larger CEMP is thought to hit the earth sometime this year, where it may hit has not been disclosed as yet. But the thing about it is: they know this stuff and keep it from us. :caution:

That was going to be my next question. Is it going to be ruff camping, or camper and RV’s also? If its all the above, will it be separated my camping style, tents in one area, campers in another and RV in still yet another? Or are we missing the whole point, a SHTF camping? Tents would still be used even then, but how about bathrooms and such.

I’m probably over thinking this, I do that now that I older, :|

Hi FounderAnt: any development in a meet-up or gathering for us? I’ve almost given up on scheduling one and have started trying to enlist those around me as potential prospects for membership and gatherings. I have met a few people recently that seems to have like mind set like ours. They are also interested in doing meet-ups as well. Which brings me to a question. Would you mind if I posted on a web site called Meet-Ups, and create a site for ANTS. To cast a line and see if we get a nibble. There are a few groups out there that fit the bill for Preppers and there are preppers on there too.

With as many guns in the hands of its citizens, there is not way outside of bombing its own people to subdue its people. That’s why they are trying to turn us against each other, to do their work for them.

We have too many officials on office that are not lovers of freedom. They want to be overlord’s or something like that. I read a white sheet sometime back, and they are talking about creating or dividing the country into nine (9) sections or territories and each having a overseer. it would be a nine (9) populaces states where all the citizens would be housed together. I don’t think that will ever happen, but if they should try, I think there will be hell to pay and blood to spill. We need to pull out of the United Nations, they’re our biggest problem.

The Constitution is not the problem, it is our own fault, we let them pass laws that conflict with the constitution, and we said nothing about it. Still today it is the one greatest document after the Bible that was ever created. And like the Bible, the Constitution is set aside for more personal self-gratification. We nether removed Congressmen or Senators that pushed laws on us then turned around and exempted themselves from those laws which violate our Constitution . So Yes; You and me are to blame for not watching and protecting our nature heritage.

We are our own worst enemy, and we don’t even know it. We set by and let them create Homeland Security, and now we are almost in a police state. It takes every American to stand up and make those we elect do what’s right for this Country and its people. I feel it may be too late, Trump is fighting an uphill battle, and without the American people behind him, he will fail. Its not those we elect that makes this Country great, its the people in it and there are too few of us left.

Mostly we now have are; mommy’s boys and Daddy’s girl beating the drums of war. But one thing for sure, if and when met with strong opposition, they will flee. They have never been tried or measured, and if they had, they would be found wanting. A nation is only as strong as its people. And we are not strong right now. Evil rises every time we stop watching what’s going on, but we are only getting fat and lazy, with our hands out for something we think is free. Nothing is free, you either pay now or later.

I like how Dirk puts things, up front and honest. I too live in a community and have a few trusted neighbors of like minded people, and we too have band together for the benefit of each of us. Most I find in our neighborhood have their heads in the sand (putting it lightly), and have no idea or even will consider the possibility. We have a Disaster Planning Committee in our neighborhood and also a Amateur Radio Emergency Repeater to use just incase. Most of the members are ham operators and we have within our small prepper group a vast pool of skills; Herbalism, Medical, Blacksmithing, Gunsmithing, Gardening. to name a few.

As most know that most of nuclear plants are on the East coast. In talking with some engineers friends, I have learned that if a nuke should shut down these power plants, that each has a back-up system for keeping the rods cool, preventing and incident like Three Mile Inland. I understand that there are different means of water feed lines incase there is a drop in water levels, but as it is, each system is a closed self contained system, no water loss through evaporation. But like most of us, I believe in Murphy’s law. Being that I live with in a thirty mile of a Nuclear plant, if the power does go out, I’m moving. The most important thing is this; a good mind set. Don’t get wade down with the shoulda-woulda’s of life. Plan for tomorrow, but realize that today might the last day, for; each day will take care of it own trials. :)

I know we all have heard that from childhood up. But stop and think about what it implies? What does our future hold for us, we may never know for sure. So many develop the mantra that, If I can’t control it, then why worry about it. But for the same reasons we buy auto insurance, life insurance, home owners insurance and so on. We prepare for the uncontrollable events in our lives. If we didn’t, we would still be living in caves.

So what if NK pops a nuke 200 miles over the central portions of the US, if we are prepared, we will do better than the one that didn’t. Then we have to be on guard against the ones that didn’t prepare. Why? Because we are now back in the 1800’s but with a little extra to help us, like: Solar, Radios, Farming, Fruit Trees, Live stock. But I don’t think that every one of us is able to be that prepared, what then, do we just turn our backs on them, or do we as Americans, help them that’s trying to help themselves, and I’m not talking about those that want to help themselves to our supplies because they didn’t listen or believe. I mean, working with each other to restart commerce, the more commerce the more verity.

So; What will you provide for that comeback? Skills, product: Blacksmithing, Gunsmithing, Medical, Furs, cloth; what can you do that will be of importance to survival, and your fellow man? One thing of myself, I’m an herbalist and make most of my own meds.

I see a lot of concern here and discomfort over the government watching you, you need to be. Back in the late sixties we listened, in the 80’s we listened, in the 2000’s we listened and watched, and they still are and there’s no way they are going to stop. Yesteryear they would kill you if you were a problem, today, they just put you in prison, out of sight and off anyone’s mind.

The government has had instruments to track, listen and do almost anything they wanted. In the 80’s operatives had codes they could dial before dialing your number, it wouldn’t ring, but only turn on the mic of you phone. they still can do that. You ever turn your cell phone off and it turn back on immediately? Big Brother saying hi. The question of wither we are alone in the universe, we’re not even alone in our homes. Have you not noticed those big white vans with the odd looking tops on them, The can sit outside at the curb and watch every thing you do. If you have guns in the house, they can see them. Some close friends in the PD showed me some stuff they could do. ticked me off. It’s all legal under the terrorist act. So; I’m not worried if they can look at my emails, record my calls, intercept mail. Hey; if they take an interest in you for what ever the reason, guess what, there will be two garbage trucks collecting on your street, one is your normal collector, the other the feds, and guess which one picks up your trash.

I agree with what you’re saying to a point. if a country would try and I say try, it would be a mistake on their part to think that they could just roll in and take over. A land assault would be something that could happen after we have torn ourselves apart and are no longer a viable threat or functioning government to a invading force. I think our resources will be enough to temptation for a foreign nation to come and try to secure this land for their own.

Many don’t realize, that we are at war now, but a different type of war. A war of electronics, cyber war and financial and economic war in a world struggling to survive. The two largest powers outside of us are warring to take us down now. Russia and China are pulling the strings on the world market to remove us from the table of world players. This is just what you can find with a little intelligence work. But there is just to much to take in to know any what if’s; until they unfold.

A.N.T.S. • Technicians License

April 1, 2017 Cadit 0

Greetings All:

It was posted in the Ants newsletter, and now here on the forum. I conduct study groups for entry level Ham license. I’m planning on conducting another class in May. If you have any interest, thoughts or think you would like to have your Ham operator license, this would be a good time to get them. The study class is free and your license is free, but there is a cost for the exam; ten (10) dollars, this I cannot get around, it is required by the VE (visiting Examiners) organization.

The study group meets twice a week for five weeks for a two to three hours’ secession. Some course material will be provided but the Technicians Class Manual you will have to purchase. The manual is just under thirty (30) dollars, which can be found on-line, Amazon, ARRL and most book stores. The manual from ARRL is the study material covered in this study, and at the conclusion of the study group, on the last day, exams will be given.

I have had people who ask; why do I need to have a license, if there is no government. I say; for the same reason, you had to get a learner’s permit to learn how to drive. It makes communicating easier, and you can develop skills that will help in a SHTF scenario. Do you think the government will allow radio communications in a grid down event, of an invading army want try to stop all radio communication? Keeping people in the dark about what is happening is the first form of control. So, in that environment, what will you do to communicate and not get caught? How will you communicate to where the enemy doesn’t know what you’re saying? Do you have a field notes code book your group has created? THINK. Learn those skills now. develop your plans or include it in your plans. You must know what is happening to survive, and good intelligence gathering is a must.

Plus; we need more CommAnts, straighten our ranks now.

Just saying, now is the time to learn those types of things. :agree:

A.N.T.S. • Is this the Calm Before the Storm

April 1, 2017 Cadit 0

Hi All:

In talking with friends and family, it became very apparent that it is thought that there is something boiling just over the arising. Many think that an attempt will be made on President Trump, and right wing socialist will try to topple the Trump Administration. Also the likelihood of a EMP attack my a foreign country before a land assault.

Is this the lull before the storm? In our talks of what if’s: all thought that America would be brought to it’s knees, wither from and EMP or a land assault or both. There would be fighting in the streets and a dysfunctional government either way. EMP; we would have us tearing each other apart from with-in, with and possibly no deaths among the perpetrators. But a land assault would mean deaths on both sides, with the offending army having heavy losses. Most thought that an attacking army would motivate the American people to take up arms in defense. Some thought that the EMP would be a prelude to a land assault, giving the American’s time to turn on each other over food and water and such.

I myself; don’t really know what it could be, my friends and family surprised me in their thoughts. I do think that something is building up, there is too much of the world governments that are against America now for it not too be. And many of our allies have backed off or just pulled away from any open support. They say one thing but do another, pitting one against the other to see who comes out on top. I do believe that our country to date is at a stage to where it would be almost impossible to defend itself on say two fronts. Our former president has weakened our defenses to a point where we can barely defend our boarders, much less win a war.

Foreign countries see this and the scramble to boaster our defenses and boarders. What is your thoughts; are we headed for a sneak attack, do we have our heads in the sand or is some foreign country/countries going to try a conquer the USA. Many think that the SHTF has been put off for a time. Remember Japan; we were having peace talks to the time we were attacked. Let us not forget our history lessons of the past.

What will you do? And do you think something is about to happen?

The American Dream, where is it today? I think it’s still alive and well, just struggling alone but still there. I too believe that our elected officials are trying to stamp it out among the American people, to be rousted among the special elect. Our great country was founded on the principle of the freedom to pursue what ever dream you have and to make it come true. Our borders were open to all that wished to come here and start a new life, but did so according to a preset procedures and policies. They had to earn their citizenship, it was not hand it out like candy, free for the asking.

But I do think the American Dream is still alive and well today, and it’s threw the efforts of people like you and me that keep it alive. They continue to try destroying it, but it continues to thrive in every level of society, among it’s people. even though we continue to fight the criminal in our streets of our communities and those in DC, We still come out on top, so long we never forget what it is we fight for; Our Freedoms.

Well I too see it as an opportunity for those of us that are red blooded Americans to set our feet in resistance and push ahead and demand our elected officials to obey or be replaced. Those that have voted against the good welfare of the people of this country and its idiot sheep need to be removed and all sheep dogs must be on alert. You know as well as I do that some type of war is coming, wither on American soil or upon the waters of life, we must be prepared and unified.

Not all have the resources to build a survival farm, nor do we have the ability to buy all those things as support. Only through the continual small purchases and putting aside well they be able to survive. Those of us that live in communities must pull those resident together and bond a relationship to survive. Better Comms and communication among those of like minded people. We all know that there is greater survival with greater numbers. Our vigilance should not be a occasional thing, but a continual observance. In the early days of this country, we had town criers, people who 24/7 was announcing the date, time and any news to the town and its people. Ben Franklin started a new type of crier called the news paper, but todays news is corrupted and unreliable. We must have a reliable means of communication of what’s true and timely.

We as ants don’t have that as yet, we come here ( which is good ) but only air what we think, but not what is true and happening to help us prepare. Our map is a great thing in letting others know we are in dire straights and need help. But we need more, we need to look at those of the past; like the minutemen, who was ready on a moments notice, and could react. All I see are; some of us are prepared and some are trying, most are in that dark place and don’t know what to expect. We are a community of Preppers, Survivalist and most of all; Americans. No matter if its 2017 or 1717, times are hard and oppressed.

We need to bond more closely, have regular talks here on a scheduled time, have gatherings, we have enough people in the area to do that, some may have to drive an hour, but brothers; the bonding needs to start now.

A.N.T.S. • Repeaters

January 27, 2017 Cadit 0

Hi All: A weird thing happened last night as I was on the air with a Ham Club’s repeater. About 8:40 our repeater went silent and was off for about ten (10) to fifteen (15) Minutes, and after they got it back up and running, it still had issues. During that time I checked other repeaters in the area and found they too were silent, I also tried the NOAA’s Weather station over on Spencer Mountain, it to was silent. It was really odd that all of these towers went silent all at the same time and no one was alarmed.

I was up until 2.30 am checking for any chatter about this, maybe it was all a quince-a-dense. But me; I don’t believe in them. But with my present set-up I’m not able to reach out very far with out the aid of a repeater, and my station is not fully operational. If any of you Hams have heard anything or have an opinion on what occurred. Please post. As of 10am this morning, all repeaters are back up and running, I’m checking to see if any are report any types of equipment damage of any type, will post if anything is found.
