    Possibly the BEST overall site - and Rawles DOES cover COMMS, including Ham, CB, GMRS, and others - is Jim Rawles Survivalblog.com. Because he also knows his limitations, he solicits subject matter experts to chime in, which allows questionable info to be corrected quickly. His archive of info is also easy to search.



    While Offgrid Survival focuses more on "roughing it" (in my observation), they did have this handy COMMS post a while back, that might especially be a handy handout for newbies.

    Just had to go there and correct the misconception of AM, USB and LSB being different "channels".

    Yup. I learned that in 1977 at the ripe old age of 14. Been trying to beat that into people's heads for the last 38 years.

    It doesn't help that the manufacturer 's advertise them that way!

    If only it were that simple. The trash can Faraday cage should be grounded for best results. Also the article only deals with antenna connections to the gear but what about penetration of the case itself? There is a reason it costs $$$ for a truly EMP hardened piece of gear.

    I don't think I will blindly accept information as being correct and factual from a website that the sites technical "expert" is a Technician class licensee that doesn't even know the difference between A1A, J2b, J2d, and J3E emissions.

    Dude,

    what the hell are you talking about??? The person asking the question is NOT the guy who is running Survival Tech Nord!!! He's a simple beginner member (Jim “K7JLJ” Linch) needing help and asking the question on the Survival Tech Nord Google + page!
