The HAM Radio Board / Re: Testing tomorrow
« Last post by fritz_monroe on October 20, 2019, 01:21:59 PM »
I use mine a lot for MARS. Used HF equipment can be a good way to go. Prices are down right now because of the IC 7300 selling for $1079 with power supply. It's quite the radio at that price. I've been asking $350 for my Ten- Tec Paragon with no takers in part of the IC 7300. I've had my 7300 for about a year and only wish I could get it to talk with my ALE software. Very stable and good ears.
So I know MARS is something to do with the military, but what exactly do you do with that?

I've watched a couple videos about that IC 7300 and it looks like a great radio.

ANNOUNCEMENTS / Re: Does anyone want to save Walking To Freedom Forum?

If there is any "walking to freedom organization", nobody has told me about it.

Still no responses from WTF Forum's current members, so making a permanent backup and nuking it is on my to-do-list.

Is this something to see if someone inside the walking to freedom orginanization would want to take over to use? I mean what org puts on the events he speaks at? Maybe they'd be interested in reviving and utilizing it?

Yeah, I'm going to try to avoid that.  I'm starting out real slow.  Ordered one of the Chinese radios the other day, should be here tomorrow, the same as when I should get my callsign.  I do think that once I get some experience under my belt, I'm likely going to sign up for my local RACES/ARES groups.

So how do you guys make use of your radios?

One of the best starting points is to get a VHF/UHF transceiver, even a  handheld, and start checking in on your local repeater's weekly emergency prep net.  Most also have a weekly ragchew time you can listen in on.  This way you will hear what others in your area are doing and have interests in.  If you hear something you are interested in, speak up!  They would love to talk with you and help you.  Many will even let you try out their equipment so you can get a feel for it.

Look at Chrip to see if it supports the radio.  Program the local Freq would be the next step.

The first two tests are 'easy'.  The 3rd is a bit harder.

What to do with the radio depends on which radio you picked up.   Another Freq to program is NOAA

All NOAA Weather Radio stations broadcast on one of eight frequencies in the VHF Public Service band: 162.400 megahertz (MHz), 162.425 MHz, 162.450 MHz, 162.475 MHz, 162.500 MHz, 162.525 MHz, and 162.550 MHz

I just poked my head into a real Ham radio store yesterday.  Some real nice hardware, I should have made time to pick up a few antennas....

Yes, with all the low cost Chinese radios the cable is responsible for the majority of the problems people encounter.  Pay the extra $5-10 for a Baofeng or TYT branded cable from a reputable seller.  You'll be glad you did. 
If you need a little help with the programming there are plenty of tutorials online.  You're BF8-HP actually has some pretty nice features for a $50 radio.

« Last post by iam4liberty on October 19, 2019, 08:09:13 PM »
Received email today.

-------------------------------------

We have several important updates we want you to be aware of.

A change in ownership occurred in late August of this year when JM Bullion acquired Provident Metals. This is good news because as the second largest eCommerce dealer in the country, JM Bullion is able to provide a variety of improvements to the Provident customer experience. In addition, we believe the combined company will now ship more transactions annually than any other eCommerce metals dealer in the USA.

Provident Metals will retain the same quality you have come to expect as your bullion dealer. However, the acquisition allows for several positive changes to help enhance your shopping experience. Let us review some of those highlights:

1. PayPal

It’s BACK! You can once again pay for your order with your PayPal account. You will now see this option appear during the checkout process.

2. Stored Payment Methods

No more entering and re-entering your card and account information. Now you can choose to store your preferred payment method to speed up the checkout process. For security reasons, you will still need to manually enter your CVV number, but you will find this new feature much more convenient!

3. eCheck/ACH

All customers are able to pay for orders with eCheck/ACH. Now you can SAVE MORE by using eCheck right away and receiving the 4% cash discount on your order! Learn more about how to verify and link your bank account today >>

Whether on your computer or on your phone or tablet, ProvidentMetals.com is faster and easier to use than ever! You will notice a big enhancement in your mobile browsing.

6. New Fulfillment Center

We will be using a new fulfillment center to process and ship your orders. This allows us to offer a greater number of products on our website, with room to grow. But best of all, it allows us to provide FASTER SHIPPING! This means that in many cases, we’ll be able to ship your order on the same day that we receive cleared payment.
 

We're also saving you more—not only do orders $99 and above ship for free, but all orders below $99 ship for a lower cost of only $3.99! We heard your feedback and we answered!

A single bad guy is one thing, a violent mob is quite another.

With a large mob the best bet is to redirect them using barricades and, if necessary, suppressing fire.  Just like the battle for k-town. 



But the vast majority of rampaging will be by small groups of vandals.  Except in a few cities, the numbers of violence oriented protesters is small and will be easily handled.

In most areas, if the police need help they will just draw upon us citizens they know they can trust.  They have started doing this in portland despite the cries of 'no fair' from ANTIFA.
