Tactical Corner / Re: Preparing for an EMP (Electromagnetic Pulse)

Yeah some of these new electronics it doesn't take but one tiny little mistake, almost static electricity level, to cook something.
I sure don't miss fusible links though.

Excellent. The Technician license is easy. You might want to check the General book, it might convince you to give it a shot as well...

I will definitely be doing that I just have a lot going on right now so it's kind of hard to even make time. Radio is a perfect IV for someone like me though I've always been the person that has to know how things work and then I have to improve the mousetrap lol

Very comprehensive with lots of information:

Includes How to Protect Against EMP
One mistake I noticed most people make they think early 70s and older vehicles will be okay but even those had a electronic ignition module that would be toast and there's a good chance it could kill the coil. Also someone else may know more about that than me but the older vehicles had a lot of fusible links on them and I'm not for sure if those would hold up or not.

Well, they're missing out a great deal. Maybe they are afraid of the General exam, which isn't much harder than the Tech..

I'm new here as well but I bought a Yaesu ft-60r just because I got a really good deal on it so I didn't pass it up but I'll be upgrading already looking.

New To Radio / Yaesu FT-60R programming

I've been trying to find out if I need a computer or if I can program my Yaesu with Android. I don't have a computer and would have to find one but I usually can do most of the same things off my phone if there is a way to connect it. Hopefully will be ready to take my test next week.

Information is a vital commodity in a disaster situation. Whomever has any, in the absence of Internet, phone and power services will have a great advantage.

Radio Preppers aims to provide individuals interested in disaster preparedness with an independent tool for the exchange of information about emergency radio communications and preparations. Hopefully it will also help build a community of like-minded individuals who could contact and help each others in times of what is commonly known as 'SHTF' or 'TEOTWAWKI.' Like-minded here means self-sufficient, strong-willed and responsible people. Independent means regardless of nationality, race, gender, political and religious beliefs, as well as unrelated to any organizations. Whether you are a licensed HAM operator, CBer, or simply curious about radio preparedness doesn't matter here.

My motivation for creating this site came from my inability to find an emergency radio club that really wasn't related to some kind of organization, mostly governmental or politically affiliated. Survival is a personal, family or small community affair. I am always suspicious of organizations that plan on telling people what to do for their own good, or else... That said, anti-government rhetoric will not be accepted here. If you don't like your government, vote accordingly. There are plenty of other boads for political ranting. This one is not one of them.

Sign-up, it's free, and stop by once in a while. If you have anything to contribute, please do so! Topics will not necessarily be limited to radio but must be related to disaster preparedness. To avoid spamming, you do need to answer a couple radio related questions; nothing a quick Google search can't answer.

Rules are few: Be courteous. Although some civil political discussions are acceptable, try to avoid them; same goes for religion. Do not suggest anything against the law, or you will be immediately banned.

Note that members who do not participate at least once a year will be deleted.

Any suggestions would be appreciated. I hope you enjoy this forum and that it helps make you and your family safer.

Finally bought a hand held ham radio going to start studying
