    Freepers: Due to last night's storms in Central Arkansas, our family found out the HARD WAY just how important communications (commo) is when the power goes out, telephone lines get blown down, the cell towers are destroyed, and we are left in the dark with multiple tornados inbound.Anyways, I wanted to solicit Freepers help on unconventional communications with family such as Citizen Band (CB), FRS, GMRS, etc. I am going to attend our Central Arkansas Ham Radio meeting next month and see about going "one step further" to get my ham radio license. Please read below for my situational needs.
  • Better have a Plan before it all hits the fan

    Americans are dangerously inter-dependent upon cell phone towers and Internet servers throughout the nation. Whether intentional or by natural disaster, ALL of these can be instantly shut down during “emergencies”. The CB Patriot Project is organizing around a simple technology and making it the back-bone of an emergency plan. By linking patriotic Americans across their homes, cities, states & country, we will be prepared for national or regional emergencies that could otherwise shut down our ability to communicate with one another. After the financial meltdown of 2007 and the 2008 elections, millions of Americans organically organized and united with one...

  • Looking for Info - Kali Oka Road hoax - VANITY

    03/05/2011 6:58:33 PM PST · by Sokol · 8 replies
    I am looking for information for an article I am working on. In the 1970s in Mobile County, Alabama (where I was raised), there was a weekend where a lady's voice could be heard on a CB radio - perhaps asking for help following an accident. Almost everyone in Saraland was out looking in every ditch for this supposed victim. Turns out to have been a hoax. It actually made the local news. If you know anything about this, please let me know. Thanks for any help.

    In the event that the catastrophe takes place which we all are thinking about and talking about in these days under this regime, whether it be a global financial shut-down (see this scenario: http://www.grandpappy.info/honehour.htm), a military strike somewhere, or some such dire event unleashes sudden freeze-up of our society: How do citizens communicate? CB? Short wave? Our lifeblood is communication. What are our options to maintain this link to patriots across the country?
