Hi All!!! Let me first say I am Amateur Radio Operator (AKA Ham Radio) as already talk about this in my first post. I like to give a little history of Ham Radio in 1909 the first callbook of Wireless Telegraph it listed a total of 89 amateurs stations in the USA & Canada. One of the oldest club is American Radio Relay League (AKA ARRL) which was founded in May of 1914. There is approximately 154,000 Ham in the League in the USA and about 7,000 in other countries. In Feb of 2007 the FCC ended Code (CW) at the time I writing there is approximately 731,536 Ham in the USA and another 11,501 Ham Radio Clubs in the USA. http://www.hamdata.com/index.html There is a little history of Ham Radio to date.
There is ways to find Ham in your area is you can go to http://www.qrz.com/db/ and if you are looking for club near you can go to http://www.arrl.org/find-a-club
there is other information I will include 3 PDF files for the test and yes they are up to date.
Due to 2 fellow Hams I now have which I greatly appreciated so now have radio for 80 to 2 meter ham bands I now can talk world wide and I have talk to Italy. So see Ham are friendly and helpful. Just check around if there is a flood the first people there will be fire & police then come the Hams with equipment and set-up many Hams have what we call BOB and they are not much different the ones we have. http://www.qsl.net/ares-22/gobag.htm you check it out here.
The radio I have now is a nice old tube type which is good in some ways and bad in some ways which is that I need 110v to run the power supply which has 600v out so I would need a generator to run it but this now bring me to the other thing that Hams use to do and that is to build his own equipment which I am going to start building a radio Bitx 20 which is a 20 meter radio I am looking at one call Bingo Star SSB Tri-band Transceiver the problem is I have to get the manual in English I will have to wait to see which bands I can build it in 80, 40, 30 or 20 or 17 meter bands it also both will run off battery or any 12v supply I will keep all you up-dated.
I read some where here that some one was asking about radio parts. You check out this web site I will help http://3955.us/Radio%20Components%20&%20Parts.htm
I will be posting on communication message blog and on Lone Wolf Survival and doing cheap.

Hi All!!! I said I'll be back so here I am... First let me say that that Ham Radio is the best way to communicate.
I can go from 160 to 2 meters also other which are what is call line of sight communicatios. You can go around
the world or around the neighborhood the following is off the web which is a forgotten communication.
However, one unlicensed frequency band often overlooked is known as MURS (Multi-Use Radio System),
which includes five VHF frequencies (154.820, 151.880, 151.940, 154.570, 154.600 MHz).
The FCC formally defines MURS as “a private, two-way, short-distance voice or data communications service for personal or business activities of the general public.”
MURS is different from other license-free radio spectrums that the FCC offers:
First, the radio may be of a higher power than other unlicensed spectrum.
Under the MURS rules, a radio may have up to a maximum 2 watts of Transmitter
Power Output.Secondly, the FCC puts no restrictions on the amount of gain that a
MURS antenna may have. The only restrictions are the antenna cannot be higher than 60 feet from the ground if free-standing or 20 feet higher than the structure it is mounted on. The third advantage is that radios in a lower frequency range are less prone to having signals blocked by hills, foliage and other objects. However, the lower the frequency the larger the antenna must be to receive
and transmit the signal. As with all radio services, the environmental conditions and terrain can
effect transmission distance but with a proper radio survey and antenna configuration, users
of MURS should expect a distance of 3 to 15 miles.
Stevens currently offers the MURS-certified TS4000 radio modem that can be shipped with settings to
facilitate the easy setup of a MURS radio network.What is MURS?
MURS stands for “Multi-Use Radio System” and is a set of five VHF frequencies that have been set aside by the FCC for free personal or business use within the United States.
There are rules that govern MURS radio transmission, but in general radios are limited to 2 watts of power and can cover a transmission distance of up to 15 miles.
MURS Frequencies:
154.820 MHz
151.890 MHz
151.940 MHz
154.570 MHz
154.600 MHz
So this would be better then FRS or GMRS as for CB Radio well it has its good and bad points is good is that there are all over the place and that is also one bad part to. SSB CB radio is better then AM radio as for coverage very at time you can talk in the neighborhood and at times you can't talk to you neighbor but can talk all around and yes I have been around at the times you can talk to the world but not your neighbor the problem is call skip so its up to you. If you do go this CB go with SSB CB radio which is better. But If you can I would go MURS radio it can go up to about 15 miles

Back to more gear that will help you carry your gear. I blanket or 2, or a quilt ( like the Ugly Quilt by My Brothers keeps Project ) http://www.uglyquilts.org/ Also you can use house wrap (DuPont Kyvek) for many thing beside house wrap like Leggings http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Qt8MMLzqJ2I&feature=related for shelter, ground cover, made into cover around your blanket or your quilt bag to help keep you warm and dry. (see more on YOU TUBE). You need a flashlight like 9 LED light which you can pick-up at any Auto Zone or Family Dollar for under $3.00 dollar and a couple P-38 or P-51. You need a cook set ( mine is no more than a couple of tin cans of different sizes) I still looking for a small frying pan. You will need some type of pocket knife, a multi-tool. A fanny pack, which I use it for carrying Meds, I also carry a letter from your Dr. that lists all your Med's and their uses on a Dr's letter head. Important papers (certified copies of the documents) I would not be carrying the originals, that way no one can seize them and if they do the copy will do them no good or you could burn them if need be.
Here is a way to carry your clothes and gear without a backpack let take step back in time, for this check out the 3 YOU TUBE videos http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RsHUhKe0wLU&feature=related
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E0U9efRJw6w&feature=related
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8GNOhmA0gx4&feature=related

So in closing I may have forgot somethings or added somethings that may not be needed at the time but some area you may need it. There is one more thing that I DID FORGET that is rain wear a large poncho and maybe legging made out of house wrap. This is made as cheap as you can and to help you get to one of cache. If I could I would have in the 4 directions small ones that will help get you to the next one on your route to your base of operations.

3 months without HOPE

AIR is all around us some times its may not be the best but its all we have for now.
SHELTER if you some tools you can be done with materials on hand, a tarp or a poncho some paracord or nylon cord around 5/32 inches. You can make a tarp out of house wrap (also know as DuPont Kyvek)
WATER we all need water, I carry 2 1 liters (pop bottles) on my belt in pouches I made out of old blue jeans pants leg. You also can make a shoulder pouch you will able to a 2 or 3 liter bottle in. ( see message here, under FOOD & WATER under RECIPES for Emergency Survival Bars & Gatorade) You can make up a 2 liter of Gatorade but DO NOT drink only Gatorade you also NEED water.
FOOD (as above check message here) Carry only emergency ration Bars (home made) also there Pemmican that you can make ( http://www.survivaltopics.com/survival/how-to-make-pemmican/ ) something else you can make is hard tack ( http://www.survivaltopics.com/survival/how-to-make-hardtack/ ) and you may carry along some coffee in the morning. DO NOT forget fire making gear and know how to use it before you need it. Here the next item you need is a stove. It can be one of the following stoves that I came across http://www.practicalsurvivor.com/hobostove
Myself I like the second stove. This next stove I the one I would take this me any time.
http://thru-hiker.com/projects/nimblewill_stove.php As you see this stove pack smaller making it easier to carry. There is one more stove that need to be look at, to me its a little big and the stove is a rocket stove. ( check out YOU TUBE)

The following is something my wife ask me. First, she asked why I wanted camouflage clothing. Seeing we live in the city. Don't you think you will STICK-OUT like a SORE THUMB. You know she was right. As I started to think about it, I came up with the fact that I wanted to become invisible. What I came up with was the people that are all around that most of us (people) don't even see or or pay attention to. You may them HOMELESS, HOBOS or some could call them BUMS. It is my observation from the news and living around them. I walk right by the HOMELESS myself and pay little attention to.
First, I say NO camouflage or any other type of military equipment. What you want to do, is to have some caches. Within a day or two walk. Have more supplies somewhere else. One more thing I would NOT carry a firearm. As we should take a lesson from the people in Louisiana. Something that I heard from somewhere. I'm not sure where it came from, but The Law Enforcement were removing and taking firearms from Law- abiding citizens. ( I know there are some that will disagree with me). But it is safer that way.
NOW! Let's start with some clothing out-wear, old wore-out blue or black jeans or a pair of old cargo pant would work better. If someone is able to sew, I would look at finding a patterns for something called scrubs like (Simplicity #4101 or 5443), they can be made out almost any fabric or color. I believe that the one above have 5 pockets in the pants. A couple of colored Tee-shirts a old baggie shirt, and yes a couple pairs of your favorite underwear. Some sock, a couple pair. A pair or 2 of wool or wool blend. A sweat-shirt would be nice, pair long john because you never know if you will need them. A good belt and coat. Also have a pair mittens ( which will keep your hands warmer then gloves), a cap, I have a bicycle helmet that I a liner with ear flaps (mittens, cap, and liner are all crocheted which I make myself).
This is the most important item of all. Foot wear, I agree, I also have to disagree with some boots. First, boots should NOT be steel-toed they will and do get very COLD. If your boots are new be sure that they get broke in very good. If you find a used pair boot, you still will need to beak them into your feet. It is of my opinion boots have a place to wear them it is, in the woods. I recommend the roads, walking or bicycling sneakers are better with these.
Here some you may find interested:::: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0YjFLmExzNM&feature=related
NOW! Here is equipment you should carry or have access to at all times, is a pocket mini survival kit. Here check out the following web site::: http://www.equipped.com/ here another one::: http://www.survivaloutdoorskills.com/ or you can make your own kit. The equipment that follow is only an emergency kit. This is NOT for a BOB. This is only to help you get out and around the authority with lettle or no problems.
