    It's all across , businesses don't have product, gun store out of guns and ammo, the Kawasaki dealer out of UTVs, Stihl chainsaw dealers shelves are bare, lumber yards short of most everything, work is another subject.....

    blame the Asian flu, blame the election, doesn't really matter, the world is changing, massive species die off that hasn't been seen for 10,000 years, a planetary weather shift, and the consequences are ...



    get out of the victim mentality and see clearly

    sorry I know radios are hot ticket, people are waking up, one of my old mentors put the bug in my ear about 10 years ago, he told me when shtf if you don't have com you don't have sh*t

    The shortages we see are a glimpse of what socialism is going to do if it takes root. Everyone is accepting the new normal. What is next? The great reset. The green new deal. Be prepared.

    There's safety in numbers.

    IT's harder to listen in on a conversation that is between two locals during skip conditions when the sheer noise can drown out their conversation when they using QRP modes - when you can be listened into by a covert 5G eavesdropper that would be more than happy to turn you in for their granted sanctuary in service to their country and you not knowing about it..

    These reasons are why I'm so glad I do CB radio repair. I can go on the FB Marketplace, or Craigslist, and buy up 40ch AM/SSB CB's on the cheap, and stick a $30 capacitor kit into them, and get them restored, and I'm good to go. No need to go out and try to buy junk "exports", when a CB will perform better on 11M. There are MANY options out there. :)(y)

    ~Cheers~

    6 or 7 years ago(EDIT: 8 years and 3 months) I worked for a company that was supplying and installing hardware at the Utah Data Center. It was a huge complex that does not show up on any Garggle (misspelled intentionally) map. One of those places that you had to have a security background check, you and your vehicle were THOROUGHLY inspected upon entrance and exit from the "compound".
    If you think your cellular calls, e-mails and text messages are not being tracked, you are sadly mistaken.

    Not all electronics. It sure won't kill tesla, solar panels, or stupid windmills. It might kill small electronics, SMT already has damaged user serviceable electronics, unless you happen to have all the new micro size equipment.
