  1. Communications
    I passed my Technician and General Amateur Radio exams last weekend, so now I am shopping for my first gear. I want to start out with a simple man-portable walkabout/bicycle-friendly kit for urban or woodland recon, bugout/bugin, and get home. (Later, as I become more proficient, I will explore...

    FirstNet was proposed after 9/11 as a high-tech interoperable comm system for first responders. So far no good. http://www.theatlantic.com/magazine/archive/2016/09/the-47-billion-network-thats-already-obsolete/492764/ "FirstNet is in such disarray that 15 years after the problem it is...

    I'm sure this information is somewhere in the archives of this great forum. I've searched and can't find it. I am wanting to get an effective range of 20 miles (give or take) using 2 meter ham and NOT using local repeaters. Any suggestions on equipment, antenna's, etc? Again - sorry if this...
  4. Communications
    I am looking for something to attach to the outside of my B.O.B. that could help me in the communication department after and emergency. I am not interested at all in sending information, but rather I am interested in receiving information. I would like it to be able to have the following...

    I am just getting started with HAM radio, I got a deal on a NIB Uniden 2600 10 meter radio. It says mobile but I am setting it up at home. I would like advice on an antenna. I have no idea what i need. No local support group yet, as I am taking the class on line. This information may already be...

    FRS threads come up now and again, and I usually don't pay them a whole lot of attention as a licensed ham. But if you want to build a small go-kit for emergencies, you'll toss in your ham HT (at the very least) -- but you may also add some FRS radios for your non-licensed family. The models...

    I've put together some code for a portable simplex repeater based on an arduino board. The parts are on a slow boat from China, but here's what I have so far (see design guide for example schematics.) Hopefully this will turn into a fun little tutorial someday and I can move this to the DIY...
  11. Looking For - Want To Buy From Vendors
    Looking for a couple of Radio Shack 19-1210 radios (preferably on the cheap) or something comparable. This is for MURS usage, so the reason I'm looking for these in particular is that they are 2Watt, which is the legal limit on MURS. If you have anything, let me know. Thanks!

    I've thought for some time that there's a need to enable texting to 911 -- for example, if you're hiding in the office copy room and there's an active shooter on the other side of the door. Apparently the FCC is about to do something about that...

    As anyone who has read the SS-0131 or MCRP 3-40.3C knows; protecting what your transmitting is just as important as who you are transmitting it to; you don't need "Charlie" hearing every dad'blamed transmission because you're using pop's CB with a 2000W "kicker" while you scream into the mic at...
  14. Communications
    I am a new member and have missed a lot, but what are most doing about longer range communication (over 1 mile +) besides ham radio? I heard (rumor) that marine radios can be used 'in emergencies' over land to communicate, are there any other options?? Of course this means mobile and not...

    I've had a ham license for a while now but never took the time to learn Morse code. I started learning Morse using the Koch method and http://lcwo.net/ and it's working pretty well. What I'd like is to augment that with a trainer but I can't seem to find exactly what I'm looking for. There may...
  16. Disaster Preparedness General Discussion
    They are two unrelated questions but I thought i'd just put it in one thread. First off, how are we (the forum) to communicate after TEOTWAWKI, if a EMP happens? Secondly, (saw this in another forum) What if the government were to take away are right to own firearms? What would you do?
  17. Disaster Preparedness General Discussion
    Found a used Grundig FR200 in great shape on Craigslist for $15. I don't know a lot about these but googled some reviews and seems like knowledgable people speak highly of it. For now, its my only emergency radio, so its better than nothing and I got it dirt cheap :D:
  18. Disaster Preparedness General Discussion
    I was looking at radio/charger and now it's not available. Does anyone know of a comparable radio that is freely available at a similar price. The one cool thing about it is it has cell phone charges included.
