Faraday comms case

Long on my ToDo list, today this one got TA-DONE! ๐Ÿ™‚ … HOORAY!!! PROBLEM: More often than not heading out without key components of my communications plan. RELATED PROBLEM: Want some protection from an EMP for my comms gear. I have tried less expensive solutions, but they always fail to satisfy form, function, utility and aesthetics. I finally recognized that I had to spend a little more to achieve satisfaction. The $140 T.Z Molded Aluminum Attache Case is an excellent choice. Real Aluminum – not plastic with a spray-on aluminum-colored coating. I looked above and below that price point with nothing competitive showing up. The other component that has had several false starts in my projects was THE FOAM. I […]

surviving great ugliness

Daisy Luther at her website The Organic Prepper has a lot of great information. Spend some quality time there, fershur. She ran a number of articles from a man who lived in, and survived a serious SHTF situation when evil overtook Bosnia. Some of us are much more ready than his community was, but they did whatever they had to do. Obviously planning and preparing could have made things a whole lot better. We can learn from their experience, or … Have you ever wondered how to defend your home and yourself if the SHTF? In this interview, Selco provides us with information from his personal experience during the occupation of Bosnia. There are many lessons we can learn from […]

Cascadia subduction

Risk management utilizes a probability/severity assessment guiding rational response. If the probability of something happening is high, but the severity of it very low, not a lot of preparing is rational. A low probability, high severity event is worth a bunch more attention. Such is a Painted Rocks dam failure, Yellowstone Caldera blowup or, today’s example, a Cascadia subduction movement. Wassat, you ask? Ah, let’s have Katherine Schultz writing for The New Yorker magazine tell you about it. I encourage you to click the headline links and read these articles. I merely tease with excerpts. The picture she paints is hugely impressive, to say the least.   ……………………………….. The Really Big One An earthquake will destroy a sizable portion of […]

12-volt lighting

Last month in Studio wired I showed you my breakthrough getting my studio 12-volt emergency lighting operating. I accomplished a couple of refinements recently. Besides the obvious advantages of having lights regardless of power grid failures, my 12-volt LEDs provide lighting options in addition to, instead of, or in combination with the various 110-volt lights I have installed. Prior to connecting up my antique meters, I was running on a gut-feeling that I had to be real conservative in my use of the 12-volt to avoid excessive depletion of the batteries, thus shortening their lives. The meters tell me I was wrong by A LOT. While modern digital meters consume almost no energy, my antique analog meters have a […]

handheld radio recommendation

Tytera MD-390 Progress in two-way radios is similar to that in all other electronics. That is to say this recommendation will not be the optimum choice years from now. Nevertheless, this radio can serve you well for many years. The other caveat is there are many good choices. This is only one of them. I am making this suggestion to help the novice find a solid handheld transceiver that is well received within the amateur radio community. In a crowded field of feature-rich radios, the MD-390 has most of what you would want while being in the lower part of the $25 to $500 price range ($130). IMPORTANT NOTE: Make sure you order this in the 400-480MHz UHF (ultra-high-frequency) model […]

Don’t Worry, Be Happy

Alfred E. Neuman Those who see chemtrails, Potomac Swamp corruption, organized evil, criminal international bombings, central bank theft, pharmaceutical poisoning, looming WWIII, false flag EMP, and other assaults you read about here are accused of being constantly negative, unhappy. Click the video button to the left for an important musical accompaniment to this article. Why should the ignorant have all the fun? I grew up in a world where the phrase “Fat, Dumb and Happy” was okay to say, we all knew what it meant, and understood there were times to choose one attitude over the other. I ‘run in those circles’, among aware friends, and find we as a class are more at peace than those we consider oblivious. […]

Chaos is a certainty:

The lack of preparedness among city people is truly horrifying Sunday, March 18, 2018 by: Mike Adams Tags: Austin, chaos, city life, civil war, Collapse, disaster, lawlessness, preparedness, social chaos, survival     (Natural News) Most people who live in cities are stunningly unprepared for almost any kind of disruption, and the situation has grown far worse in recent years. Although I usually stay out of large cities, I just finished some travel that took me through several cities (and a few suburban areas, too), giving me a fresh new look at the situation. My conclusion? Red alert alarms are going off about the exploding problem of homelessness, lawlessness, gang activity, open drug use and what seems to be […]

what would you do with A Hundred Trillion Dollars?

This is what paper currencies do. Every time. The US Feral Reserve Notes have had a phenomenally long run, but the pattern will not be broken… those who ignore history, however, will be. Today you can buy ONE HUNDRED TRILLION DOLLARS Zimbabwae for 250 FERAL RESERVE NOTEs. You could, on the other hand, buy a dozen or more real, solid, sound-money dollars for an equal amount. Of course when the international banking cartel took over the USofA currency, you could exchange our dollars for one ounce of silver straight across. They stole the difference. While fiat governments and their fiat currencies come and go, precious metals in known purities and quantities hold their value for centuries, generations and without […]

What is an EMP? Why should you care?

Your have read about it here; heard about it in many places. Perhaps you are one of the rare birds who have done a few things in case one comes along. Elias Alias, at his Mental Militia website put together a primer on the subject, along with many of its permutations… Ya’know, how it would completely change your life, and that of everyone on Earth. Of course it won’t happen… Unless it does. The probability is low (or is it?). The severity is high (extreme, actually). In business and personal life, any possible event with high severity merits attention. I will let Judge Jeanine Pirro tell you a bit more in this 3-minute news clip: The full course of study, […]

November 4th EMP

Next Saturday may well be very interesting. (As in the Chinese curse: May you live in interesting times) PART 2 As Elias Alias covered handsomely in the post EMPBS, coronal mass ejections or man-made EMPs could thrust us violently into the stone age. If you just arrived at my website and haven’t heard of these, use the above link to study up in a hurry. Next weekend The Deep State’s Department of Homeland inSecurity is running an EMP drill. Eeeek!!! Federal drills have a bad habit of coinciding with a very real version of what they are practicing for. Even more disconcerting, The Drill coincides with the widely publicized beginning of the Soros-and-Friends financed revolution against Trump and FOR […]

EMPBS

A friend, compatriot and exceptional analyst artfully crafted the following article. I share it here because he published it for the widest possible distribution. You can see it in its native environment here: The Mental Militia I encourage you to go there, or here read, comprehend and follow the links where they lead you. Knowledge will ensue. Ted   E.M.P.B.S.   by Elias Alias October 2017   Coronal Loops I recently (September 2017) had a conversation with a Deputy Sheriff in Montana who asked why I would wrap an external hard drive in tin foil, then place it inside a tin-foil-lined box, then seal the whole box with an outer layer of tin foil.  I replied that I had done […]
