Amateur Night at the Dipole!

Amateur Night at the Dipole!
Micheal Kline “Reality Check” Audio player below!

Amateur Night at the DipoleFor this show, we are going to make a lot of ham radio operators mad. I expect to get a lot of flak for this show. In this show, we are going to be discussing amateur radio and why it is and is not important to get your license. Here is the cold truth. You do not need a ham radio license to use a radio and having a license does not mean you know how to use a radio. You bought that awesome BaoFeng, got it programmed, and now what? Did you know that you can use FRS and MURS channels without a license? Did you know that you need a license to use GMRS? Continue reading Amateur Night at the Dipole!

CanningGGsBoo will discuss pressure cookers, the canning process, the difference between water bathing and pressure canning. GaryL will expand the previous discussion on Pythagoras and Tesla by having some fun with numbers and amateur radio, how it all relates to frequency, energy, and vibration!

Ham RadioThese and more topics will be extensively treated as the trip continues from week to week as there is far too much to cover in a single hour, and much of what will be discussed is of an evolving and dynamic nature.

Rabbits and HAM: Food and Commo for the End of the World!

One of the 8-28Rabbits2simplest ways to prepare for disaster is to buy and stock up on ready-made foods and gear. There is nothing wrong with this unless it is your only strategy or unless you are only interested in being able to survive for a week or two. However, during any kind of disaster that might last weeks, months or indefinitely, it is necessary to have a longer-term plan. This involves sustainable food and sustainable, effective communications.

The most i8-28Rabbits3important thing to remember about long-term prepping is that there is a point where skills actually start to trump gear. Nobody can live indefinitely off of nothing but supplies if there are no skills to allow for sustainable resources. In the case of food, this realistically should include meat. Sustainable meat is very easy to provide in a number of ways, but one of the easiest and most convenient for the prepper is backyard rabbits.

Just like sustaina8-28Commo1ble food, the prepper also should be concerned with sustainable communications. That is, not only radio systems that work and have range, but also are powered by a sustainable, off-grid power source. If you could only choose one type of radio to become involved with as a prepper, learn about and operate, it should probably be HAM or amateur radio.

Join Sam Coffman on The Human Path in today’s broadcast as he explains some tips and tricks for back yard rabbits as a sustainable food source, and also discusses various forms of post-disaster communication to include amateur radio.

Communication in Time of Disaster!

After a disaster how will you communicate? No cell phones! No land lines! You are cut off from the world with no way to find out what’s going on around town, across the state or around the world. Think it couldn’t happen? Well, it did after Katrina, Andrew and other hurricanes and tornadoes like the ones that devastated cities and towns in the mid-west.  Join Karen and her guest Mike as we discuss the different options of communications available such as Amateur radio, GMRS, MURS and even CB.
