Emergency Communications • Re: Are CB radios still an option?

June 30, 2017 orangetom1999 0

A suggestion , If I might…..

A peaked and tuned radio is fine…for sure.

However…there might come conditions in a SHTF situation where you do not want to leave a peaked and tuned fingerprint…or running so much power that you stand out all across the country or country.

With this in mind it is often nice and convenient to have a variable resistor installed in line by which you can adjust your out put power up or down as needed. This no matter how powerful your final transistor puts out the watts. In this manner it us up to you as to how big a fingerprint your rig leaves in the airwaves.

This is common on most HF Ham radios and I have seen CB’ers who have incorporated this feature into the backs of their rigs.

You might not want everyone to know you are there by leaving a huge amount of power…a huge fingerprint …to let everyone know you are there.

For those of you who know how…a directional antenna and adjustable power are optimal….and for those who know even more….the ground plane of your vehicle and how to use it to your best advantage helps as well…with adjustable output power. In otherwords the transmitting pattern of your mobile set up..how and in what direction your mobile antenna transmits the best.

This no matter what bands on which one operates.

Just a passing thought.

Two things chill my blood when I think of this.

One, there are a lot of these “people”. It is simple numbers, a group of 10 heavily armed men or women will not stand a chance against 1000 scrawny emaciated tree huggers. Granted the losses would be astronomical but in the end the numbers would overpower the heavily armed people. It would become a war of attrition, and it takes no time to become vegetarian cannon fodder but it takes months to train soldiers.

Two, there are a lot of fence sitters and they are armed. I even have to consider myself part of this group. These are the people who are actually in the middle on most issues. Most of these people could care less about gay rights or abortion or any of it, they like the status quo and do not want to rock the boat. My fear is that these people will throw their lot in with the liberals as soon as the conservatives go to far, and then it is not just the numbers but it is also armed people. For each one it will be a different trigger, a family member coming out or a rape that results in a abortion, but slowly they will align with the far left as politicians push to the right.

This gets compounded with the “moral” dilemma that will plague those who could care less but are expected to follow orders. How many people could pull the trigger on a unarmed (at least no firearms) person when they are ordered to protect some bank that foreclosed on their brother-in-laws house. This is why the occupy wall street people were allowed to go as far as they did, the people who were supposed to stop them had themselves been wronged by the institutions that needed protecting. Nobody wanted to shoot some guy throwing rocks at a bank because that bank had similarly screwed all the people that it needed to protect it. I imagine that a “new revolution” would go down the same way, and many could not stomach killing unarmed civilians. Look at the revolution in Ukraine, there may be a civil war now but at the time that power changed hands it was relatively bloodless as far as these things go.

On some level I think it might be good to have a limited confrontation, but once it starts I don’t think it will stop. If it was limited it would keep people from straying to far left or right, and the extremists on both sides would probably die. But again I don’t think it would be limited, and I’m sure there are many other angles I’m not seeing.

A very interesting thought exercise, thanks.

Have you ever served in the Military? Just asking because 1,000 tree huggers may not be able to handle 10 veterans. Even if the tree huggers have rifles and vets have hand guns. In the military we were trained in what a kill zone was. It was the immediate space in front of you going left to right and over lapping those on either side by a bit. I don’t recall the degrees. But what it does is allows each person cover an area. Pretty danged effective too.

I do agree with you that we are heading for something interesting.

There is nothing I enjoy more than building or repairing something. Nothing beats welding up a aluminum boat hull from scratch or building a trailer from nothing but scavenged steel & used axels. Rebuilding engines are a close second, it is so easy to get sucked in and before you know it hours have passed. These are things that I rarely get to do anymore, I have no shop or power at the cabin and can only work on major repairs or new builds when I’m in town visiting my wife. When I am out I only have the daily grind of food and firewood and furs, and it is a good life but it does not have the relaxation associated with it that building and repairing things does.

A.N.T.S. • Re: What are the 5 skill Sets you would Want in a GDS

June 30, 2017 Permafrost 0

I have most of the skills I need to survive out at my place from milling lumber to harvesting food, but I must admit there are a few I would like to pick up that are on the comfort side for the apocalypse. For one reason or another these just seem to fall through the cracks, mostly money I suppose but not always.

Blacksmithing – I’ve done it a few times and can probably beat out a machete or some nails but I need way more practice, and a forge, mostly the forge.

Communications – I have been drooling for a long time over a radio, something nice that does short wave & air to ground & am/fm. At this point I may just spring for a antenna and do am/fm in the short term so I can get some news when I’m out.

Distilling – Nothing beats a drink at the end of a hard day of manual labor, and I have no idea what it takes to make one from scratch. A still would be nice but I have been hesitant because there is not really a natural supply of sugar in Interior Alaska. Almost all the recipes I have seen call for sugar.

Tanning – I would love to learn how to properly tan a hide. Most of the ones I have done are fit for utility purposes but I wouldn’t dream of making underwear from them. And something to thin beaver hides with, have you ever felt how thick & heavy the leather is on a beaver hide that has not been thinned at a tannery.

I think that about sums up my dream list of skills I don’t have. I’m in town for a day to pick up my wife & back out to the cabin, so it’s no wonder that I have a hard time filling out the last of my skill sets. Trial & error only takes you so far.

June 30, 2017 RockinB 0

I have a 3 Litre Tiger Model NFA-B300 XS. We brought a pot of beans to boil, dropped in a chunk of salt pork, boiled for about 30 minutes, stuck it in the thermal case and 8-9 hours later it was luke warm and disgusting. It’s over 20 years old and may be too thin of a case for anything other than rice. Works okay for rice but that’s about it for this thermal cooking “helper”. Still has all the stickers on it. Never tried anything else in it. It will work for SHTF subsistence survival cooking but for day to day use we don’t use it.

Newer models probably have a better thermal case / heat retention.

Good luck and if you get a good one let us know. Might be time for an upgrade.

June 30, 2017 IceFire 0

Around my perimeter fences, there are places adjacent to the “neighbors” where the fence is doubled, with a 2-3 foot space between their fences and ours…we’ve started a bunch of prickly pear cacti there…just chop off pads from other prickly pears that are growing where you DON’T want them, and chuck them into the “no man’s land” between the fences; those suckers will take root and grow with NO assistance, and no one in their right mind (or even people OUT of their minds, for that matter) wants to tangle with those things! For the other areas of the fenceline, there are nice, THORNY brambles…blackberries, raspberries, boysenberries, and rugosa roses. Those have the advantage of not only providing a great deterrent, due to the thorns, but they provide me with food and natural medicine, as well. (The raspberry leaves are especially good to dry and use on my cranky mare when she’s in heat…they are the ingredient in “Mare Magic”.) Oh, and then there are the dogs (4 of them, including a Belgian Malinois and a Pit Bull.)

That leaves only the gate (which is kept chained shut at night or when no one is home) with a LONG driveway, but with any intruders within range.

A team of sled dogs running loose all over your property will generally let you know if anything living comes within a mile of your place. If you throw a few german shepherds in the mix the whole team will generally start to adopt the “guarding” nature of the shepherds, and not just instantly charge in for the kill. Nothing says stay away like a bunch of 120+ pound freight haulers with their hackles up. I’ve seen them stand their ground against a grizzly, and watch the grizzly walk away looking scared. Generally groups of 2 or 3 seem to naturally do perimeter security, walking around a outer border of the property looking for threats. You got to love the territorial nature of sled dogs, if they think its home they will guard it to the death. Once the barking starts the whole pack comes a running, including myself.

I’ve met some folks that I was considering forming a “loose” alliance with. I really don’t believe in groups but I do think that mutual aid might be beneficial if something were to happen, and it gives you another storage option for a spare kit & vice versa. If nothing else I figure I have a spare bug out bag stashed if my house in town burns down. I have a simple philosophy when it comes to looking at potential acquaintances, they must be at least somewhat competent enough to last a week (grid down) in the winter without getting into my stuff.

I’ve met some folks that I was considering forming a “loose” alliance with. I really don’t believe in groups but I do think that mutual aid might be beneficial if something were to happen, and it gives you another storage option for a spare kit & vice versa. If nothing else I figure I have a spare bug out bag stashed if my house in town burns down. I have a simple philosophy when it comes to looking at potential acquaintances, they must be at least somewhat competent enough to last a week (grid down) in the winter without getting into my stuff.

Gardening, and animal husbandry. Nothing more satisfying than growing/raising your own food, and then preserving it for later use. Plus, I REALLY like the steady supply of FRESH eggs from my own flock! That, and I’m happiest when I’m playin’ in the dirt!

Although, sewing is equally satisfying…I was a frustrated artist until I found FABRIC as a medium.

Can’t happen here – Really! Venezuela – Hugo Chavez – A collapse in confidence in the existing parties led to Chávez being elected president! Remember how well Bernie did in our last election! Swamp

I like cooking a variety of ways – on the grill, over a fireplace, on the stove, on the wood-stove. I also love making bread – not with a machine, but by hand.

I used to love quilting, but it fell out of favor for a while when so many people wanted me to make stuff for them, with their specifications. Now that I’m making stuff on my own again, I’m starting to think I might start liking it as much as I used to. I’m not sure yet. :)

Although I am by no means an expert, if someone around me is sick, I’ll go down the research rabbit hole and try to find a way for them to be healed – whether with conventional medicine or with something herbal that will help them. I have helped several people get the care they need, just by doing the research for them. One has taken my recommendations to a doctor and received some of the care I specified. Another person has been told the doctors can do no more for her chronic condition, so I researched and researched and she is now on an herbal that allowed her to eat food just in the last week, that she’s not been able to eat for years (if you’ve ever had c.diff bacterial overgrowth, IBS or GERD, and possibly chronic ulceritis, look into Saccharomyces Boulardii – https://www.amazon.com/NOW-Saccharomyces-Boulardii-Veg-Capsules/dp/B0053W995W/ref=sr_1_1_a_it?ie=UTF8&qid=1498776118&sr=8-1&keywords=NOW+saccharomyces+boulardii DISCLAIMER: Not a doctor, am not one on TV, and only requesting you look into it. What you do with that information is on you.

Foraging – I do not actually forage much, however, I’m getting familiar with the food plants that grow around us, and know the way they are meant to be harvested, and their uses.

They the libs could already be armed remember the mass amount of ammo and arms that was purchased and no one knows were it went or to whom under Odrama , so a shadow army could be ready .

One small step has been taken already that is the attempt to discredit Mr. Trump and the election results add in the Russian probe , and the fake news along with the call for impeachment by the Libs .
As for what I or our group would do well we will cross the bridge when or if it happens .
The fight for our independence also pitted us against each other . The group that held fast the love for England got there ace kicked by the local rebels as they were called . The Civil War was a war against the forced rule imposed upon us . It also killed all state rights an imposed federal law .
