malewithatail: growing in it, and practice with the whole family how to start the pump, what valve to turn on etc. Add roof sprinklers to dwellings and sheds, battery backed up, and u will be better prepared than 99.9 % of people are. Join yr local Bush fire brigade. Feb 2, 2021 16:57:02 GMT 10
SA Hunter: Rain, rain, rain!!!!! Feb 4, 2021 8:23:57 GMT 10
SA Hunter: 17mm rain so far today - yay! Feb 4, 2021 13:45:28 GMT 10
doglover: Glad your getting rain there! Water is the most important element for all life. I’m very fortunate to be in an area that has abundant rainfall, even if I don’t appreciate it when I’m trying to work in it! Feb 5, 2021 10:41:54 GMT 10
malewithatail: Have you got your comms organized for WYSHTF ? Hams, prepper frequencies are 7.128 mhz, and 14.235 mhz. Note them down and be ready, to others, get your ham license, or at least a decent short wave radio that can receive SSB ham transmissions.Time is short Feb 8, 2021 6:53:43 GMT 10
malewithatail: The thing we feared the most in combat was the lack of comms, not knowing what was happening. The battlefield weapon the Germans feared the most was the BC336 walki talki, even with a only a 2 mile range, fury could be called down on them by anyone anytime Feb 8, 2021 6:56:04 GMT 10
malewithatail: Knowledge, now is the time to learn, get hold of some old (1950's and 60's) ARRL handbooks and learn how radio works, be able to build your own simple receivers from junked bits. Check the communications board for more info. Feb 8, 2021 6:59:50 GMT 10
frostbite: How is ham radio important to a prepper? Feb 8, 2021 15:13:48 GMT 10
anonymousprepper: receieving updates on whatever is happening, communicating with any buddies you might have near you? Feb 8, 2021 15:16:03 GMT 10
frostbite: Isn't ham radio for very long distance communication? Feb 8, 2021 15:34:57 GMT 10
malewithatail: Ham radio can be as simple as communicating with your friend in the next town, or 1/2 way across the world. You can use the amateur satellites, bounce signals off the moon or Venus and communicate that way. The sky's literally the limit. Feb 8, 2021 18:09:01 GMT 10
jackosaur: delicious ham Feb 11, 2021 19:01:09 GMT 10

SA Hunter: Hi all - finally home after a long week awy - lots to catch up on here. Feb 13, 2021 20:32:46 GMT 10
malewithatail: Hope everyone is reevaluating their preps after the mess in Texas? Feb 19, 2021 9:23:00 GMT 10
malewithatail: We sure are. Feb 19, 2021 9:23:45 GMT 10
SA Hunter: mwt - it is interesting reading to say the least. Feb 19, 2021 10:50:06 GMT 10
