• Effective immediately we will be deleting, without notice, any negative threads or posts that deal with the use of encryption and streaming of scanner audio.

    We've noticed a huge increase in rants and negative posts that revolve around agencies going to encryption due to the broadcasting of scanner audio on the internet. It's now worn out and continues to be the same recycled rants. These rants hijack the threads and derail the conversation. They no longer have a place anywhere on this forum other than in the designated threads in the Rants forum in the Tavern.

    If you violate these guidelines your post will be deleted without notice and an infraction will be issued. We are not against discussion of this issue. You just need to do it in the right place. For example:

    ‘Friendly’ EMP improves survival for electronics

    I came across this article from Sandia Labs while doing some non-related research. Since some previous posts touched on EMP, I thought this would be worth sharing. It's a quick, easy read, too, which isn't the norm from the majority of Sandia papers...

    Affordable radio for storage

    Hey y'all I have been doing some research on EMPs (Electromagnetic Pulses) and was looking at how to protect electronics from an EMP attack. I started wondering what Motorola radios would be good to stock pile for an emergency such as an EMP attack. I think I would prefer something with a...

    10 Meter Simplex Group for, say, Grid Failure

    Any ideas about how to establish a MN group (perhaps more than MN) in case of local or national grid failure-- using 10 meters? Several ideas relating to why we would need to rehearse member communications: 1. Our antennas might not be compatible at relatively short distances. Example: dipole...

    FRS/GMRS use after an EMP

    Hi all, First time poster on the site. I'm looking for specific information to protect my FRS/GMRS radios from an EMP or other natural occuring event that is similar. I have been building and testing several Faraday cages to block out the over powering RF/radiative signals caused by these...
