At the request of a fellow prepper I decided to put this post and video together.

Some things I forgot to mention in the following video…

  • EchoLink – This is a program where Ham repeaters are wired into the internet. This is obviously only going to work if the grid and the internet are working but if you mask your IP, use proxies, VPNs, TOR, etc… you’re location will be fairly secure. This program only works with a valid call sign issued by the FCC. You can also use this on a laptop and (illegal activity warning) jack into the outside phone technician box on a random house to get your access, hell, everyone has high speed internet now a days… OR, use someones free WiFi like the public library or McDonald’s. The options are literally limitless if the grid is still up. They also have smartphone apps but as I said in the video, USE A BURNER PHONE and DO NOT link up any accounts on that phone or BINGO you’re busted!
  • FLDIGI – I mention it in the video but here is the link DOWNLOAD ME HERE.
  • National prepper frequenciesDON’T USE THEM!!! You can bet your ass these frequencies will, as well as already are, being monitored by the bad guys. OPSEC, OPSEC, OPSEC!!! These plague frequencies are as follows:
    80 Meters – 3.818 MHz LSB
    (TAPRN Net: Sundays at 9 PM ET)
    40 Meters – 7.242 MHz LSB
    40 Meters Morse Code / Digital – 7.073 MHz USB
    20 Meters – 14.242 MHz USB
    20 Meters Morse Code / Digital – 14.073 MHz USB
    2 Meters – 146.420 MHz FM
    440 (70 cm) – 446.420 MHz FM
    FRS/GMRS – Channel 4 (462.6375 MHz)
    CB – Channel 4 (27.005 MHz)
    MURS – Channel 4 (154.570 MHz)
    Stay the hell away from and avoid these like you would the plague.
  • Receive Only. If all you want to do is gather as much information as you can then just get receivers. A good, digital police scanner and a good, side-band capable shortwave receiver with continuous frequency coverage are all you will need.

This video was 100% off the cuff so I’m sure I said something inaccurate. If you have any questions or comments don’t be afraid to ask.

Always, always, always do your own research. I can’t stress that enough. I AM NOT A RADIO GOD!!! I am just another average extra class ham radio operator that happens to also be a prepper wanting to share my knowledge with the community. There are so many things you need to know, this is just a primer. For instance, proper grounding of equipment, antennas, etc… is not only critical to keep your expensive equipment safe from lightning but also diminishes noise in the signal and allows for clearer communications. It’s a whole other world to learn about.

I’ve included some pictures of my setup for reference. You can click them to zoom.

As always Like, Share, Comment, etc… Share the Love and keep on prepping.

They’re called BURNERS. Google it! Watch my video but here are the basics:

  1. Always Pay Cash. Never use a credit card and Never give out your information.
  2. Buy the simplest phone you can find. Preferably a flip phone with no internet or camera. I realize these are really hard to find.
  3. Leave battery out when not in use & charge battery only in vehicle in a non-critical location.
  4. When in use make sure you are not at a critical location.
  5. Never use names or other personal information over phone or text messages.
  6. Never give out the burners number to anybody except critical team members… eg. family or key people in your prepper group.
  7. The person on the other end MUST also have a burner phone.
  8. Never slip up, NOT EVEN ONCE. If you do you need to chuck the burner and get another one.

Following these steps should ensure 95% or more privacy but keep in mind if you’re a target of the NSAs they have voiceprint software that can identify you with just a few words and then you’ll be linked to that burner. So text messaging is the better choice.

Also keep in mind this only works if the system is up. If the grid goes down your S.O.O.L.

I’m quite embarrassed to say I never thought of this. Excellent read!

In an EMP attack, or a major power grid failure, GPS systems would be out of service along with cell phones and other electronic communication systems.  So all you rely on today for getting from one place to another will be rendered useless and all you’ll have left is your knowledge and your skills.

That is if you have them, because not a lot of us have ever been put in a situation where they had to get from A to B using the underground sewage system. Or even a map or a road atlas.

That’s why it would be to your advantage to know how to navigate using these older, tried and true methods. It’s never to late to start learning and practicing your skills, so I won’t drag this on anymore and get to the point.

Boy, this September shit is really making people panic, even those who aren’t preppers. Case and point, my in-laws are freaking out right now because the pope is coming.it’s going to be world wide financial collapse, Armageddon, etc…. if it is world wide and you just took all your money out of the bank, the next day you might be able to buy a sandwich with it. Learn skills, don’t just buy shit.

When planning for disaster, we run through scenarios in our mind and those scenarios give us a visual baseline for which we make plans. As preppers we talk a lot about the steps you can take right now to get prepared so that you will have a plan, supplies and options for when that disaster may strike. Often preparedness deals with the immediate effects of disaster like having a vehicle to bug out or having plenty of food and water to deal with shortages. The next logical step from that is a longer term plan, but those long term prepping plans usually revolve around extensions of those same basic needs: Food, Water, Shelter and Security.
