    Thanks for asking.
    Not many folk have a clue what a PRC-104 is.
    As a matter of fact, yes, I've used them for many years and even tho I use a PRC-138 now,I keep a PRC-104 around because they're darn near indestructible. That's why the Marine SO's still use them when newer more modern are available to them.
    Thanks for asking.
    Best regards,
  3. Don't get down to FL at all. However, I'm going to try to make one of the camping trips eventually.

    I need to get used to the blogging. It's my first attempt. Also I have a lawn service I run and in the summer I just don't feel like doing things in the garden when I get done mowing all day in the heat. Plus there is not too much growing to speak of in the summer. I plan on redoing some beds this fall with concrete block and trying some different varieties of plants and I will be blogging about it.

    The solar system does fantastic when the sun is out. The summer is the worst time though because of the afternoon storms. July has been the worst month so far in output. One day last July the whole system only made .3 kwhs or 300 watt hours. It was dark all day.

    Congrats on the new job!! I have been getting my feet wet more and more with Oracle, I have found out that GRID lies to you (told me a backup was running but when I asked the TSM team they said no backup is running right now). We are migrating them to Linux slowly but surely same with our DB2 db's. Have fun learning! Of course in our profession learning goes without saying, can't make a career in this field without constantly learning.

    My team does Windows/Oracle and we are migrating from Unix P-Series Frames to Linux on commodity servers for our DB2 stuff. There is some SQL Server in the company but not in my group. Linux is sweet!!

SR101 part 2b: The Point is to Get on the Air.

by qrprat77 on 01-04-2013 at 08:00 AM
Get On The Air. Usually that refers to a specific ham radio station as part of a larger set up during an event called "Field Day". Field day is when Hams practice their skills together, cook out, and have a good time generally speaking. It's a great place to pick up new ideas for your home stealth setup. As an added bonus, you may discover that some of the guys in the club may be into preparedness too!
So getting on the air is a matter of having a powersource,

Time for part 2 on keeping your station hidden. In this section we will discuss how to use 'unconventional items' as antennas, even though they are not the best. We will also discuss the pro's and con's of having an antenna in your attic, and the importance of antenna tuners to your station's operation. Some of the techniques here presented could be dangerous, or could place you in a position of danger. Some of these techniques are designed for 100 watts or less of power. Use caution! First of all,

This is going to be a multipart Blog on making your SHTF radio station as unobtrusive and efficient as possible.

Primary Goal:
Because people with perceived knowledge/stuff will be targets, we want to keep our stations hidden, while still maintaining as strong and efficient a signal as possible.
