Survival Net Update: February 17, 2013

Lifeboat

by Jim Saemann, AB3RA

THE SURVIVAL NET must be making an impact, because we ran into several instances of intentional interference both on frequency and near frequency Sunday night. Band conditions were difficult even without the interference, but we managed to have a great discussion anyway.

Tonight on 3983 kHz we talked about the social aspects of survival.  Specifically, we talked about forming groups of like-minded individuals among your friends and neighbors — the premise being that none of us should be a “lone wolf” in a crisis. We can share mutual assistance and support with our friends and neighbors.

SURVIVAL NET Session 6 took place on February 10. While we normally like to use 3.983, the frequency was occupied so we moved to 3.977. Band conditions were decent but we did run into some QRM from another net on a nearby frequency.

The topic of discussion was financial survival in times of economic distress. Before summarizing our discussion, I would like to thank Dieter (K3DK) for standing in for me as net control on January 27.  I was taking my daughter back to college that night and Dieter ran a lively discussion about emergency power generation.

Survival Net Update

aquaponics

by Jim Saemann, AB3RA

THE SURVIVAL NET had its third meeting on Sunday, January 13, at 9 PM Eastern Time on 3983 kHz. We had an in-depth discussion about aquaponic gardening and keeping warm in a crisis. Aquaponics involves having a vegetable garden connected to a fish pond. The fish produce waste which fertilizes the vegetables. Water from the fish pond is filtered through the garden and returned to the pond. The result is high quality organic food, year round, without weeds, chemicals, etc.

Listen: Survival Net 1/13

One of the subtopics discussed was the very real possibility of a world wide hunger crisis due to drought and dust-bowl type conditions in many agricultural areas. The food shortage, combined with currency manipulation and devaluation, could lead to massive food inflation and possibly even riots. The importance of emergency food supplies, as well as sustainable personal agriculture, cannot be overestimated. Does anyone really want to rely on FEMA for their food?

Liberty Net: January 14, 2012

by Kevin Strom, WB4AIO

IT’S NOT ALWAYS EASY to find a clear frequency for the Liberty Net, but one thing you’ll notice is that our net is one of the very few that does not merely fire up on an accustomed frequency, but instead is frequency-flexible. That means you’ll have to search for us — almost always between 3950 and 3990 kHz LSB — but W1WCR’s signal is strong and distinctive, so we shouldn’t be too hard to find.

Listen: Liberty Net 1/14

Here’s a small sample of what you’ll hear on our latest recording:

• Be prepared for even more inflation as the Fed, and the banks that control it, start more “quantitative easing” under the banner of “QE3” — meaning that the oligarchs will get trillions in free money, while the people hold fewer and fewer dollars, each of which is rapidly dropping in value. (14 minutes)

• More and more companies, though nominally “private corporations,” have in reality become creatures of the banks because of the mountains of debt that have been loaded upon them by corporate raiders. (22 minutes)

Liberty Net: January 7, 2012

by Kevin Strom, WB4AIO

SOMETIMES OUR CONVERSATIONS, both on and off amateur radio, seem like a vast wasteland of empty chatter, small talk, and gossip — but that can’t be said of the conversations on the historic Liberty Net. Some of the most aware and articulate people I’ve ever known are regulars there. Taking part in Liberty Net conversations is a direct connection to bright minds and new perspectives — perspectives that often are suppressed or vilified by the billionaires’ media.

Listen: Liberty Net 1/7

Here’s a small sample of what you’ll hear on our latest recording:

• The protests aren’t just on Wall Street: In Israel — on Rothschild Boulevard, no less — one of the protestors against the financial oligarchs, many of whom have connections to that country, actually erected a guillotine. (18 minutes)

• Only 13 senators had the courage to vote against the outrageously illegal so-called “National Defense Authorization Act” (NDAA), which strips us of our most fundamental constitutional rights. There is a patriotic movement afoot to have the 86 who voted for it removed from office. (22 minutes)

Liberty Net: December 31, 2011

by Kevin Strom, WB4AIO

JUST ONE OF THE AMAZING things you’ll hear on this week’s Liberty Net recording is the live transmission of automatic weapons and shotguns being fired in a Detroit neighborhood at midnight on New Year’s eve.

Listen: Liberty Net 12/31

The initial launch of our own live chat and audio feed was a success and we continue the experiment this week. While we experiment with this new feed and chat, we will not be using the old Stickam page. If you can’t check in over the air, please use our new live feed at:

http://3950.net/live

The discussions and debates promise to be as intense as ever as we celebrate the 38th anniversary of our historic net. Here’s a small sample of what you’ll hear on the latest recording:

• As trillions of computer-generated “dollars” are being illegally created out of nothing to prop up failing foreign banks in the EU, some European countries are preparing for the possible implosion and abandonment of the Euro: Germany has now joined the club and started to print Deutschmarks again, though they haven’t been issued yet. (49 minutes)

• More than 70,000 people have dropped GoDaddy as their domain and Web hosting provider because that company supports the government’s misnamed SOPA (“Stop Online Piracy Act”) and PIPA (“Protect Intellectual Property Act”), which are just censorship power grabs under innocent-sounding names. (53 minutes)

WE BEGIN the New Year with the test of a new ad-free audio feed and chat room which will be live during the next Liberty Net — please check it out at:

http://3950.net/live/

Before the net begins, and after the net is over, we’ll be sending Liberty Net recordings and other tests on the audio feed, so feel free to try out the new page and learn how to use it. As always, here’s the archived recording too:

Listen: Liberty Net 12/24

Here’s a tiny selection of some of the ideas brought up during this week’s Liberty Net discussion:

• Why has there been a huge explosion of the population of disease-bearing ticks in northern New England? The epidemic is spreading Lyme Disease in humans and is causing a mass die-off of moose, some of which are literally carrying more than 100,000 ticks each, which essentially immobilizes them before they die. (21 minutes)

• Now that Ron Paul’s frontrunner status has become too obvious to ignore, the banker-owned media have brought out their dirty tricks to smear him. Their current tactic is to make him appear “racist” or “extremist” because he has occasionally told the truth about freedom of association and other “radical” things. (38 minutes)

Liberty Net: December 17, 2011

by Kevin Strom, WB4AIO

LIBERTY NET participants wish you and your loved ones the very best of Yuletides this year, and hope that you remember, and remind all your family and friends about, the vital importance of freedom of speech and freedom of association in the coming year.

Listen: Liberty Net 12/17

Here’s a small selection from the topics discussed during this week’s free-ranging Liberty Net discussion:

• Politicians lie all the time, but it’s useful to point out one of their most sneaky lies — one in which the billionaires’ media are complicit: They constantly claim to be “reducing the deficit,” which really means little or nothing because they never reduce the debt. In order to reduce the debt, the deficit would not only have to be totally eliminated, but reversed. But, since the bankers want us to work for them forever, and since most of the voters are so ignorant that they don’t know the difference between the debt and the deficit, the debt will never be reduced unless there is a coup or revolution to restore legitimate government. (21 minutes)

• From the 1970s to today, there have been at least a dozen repeated claims by the Zionist lobby and their sycophants in Congress about the “danger” of “imminent” construction of a nuclear bomb by Iran, all in an effort to start a war to decimate this rival of Israel’s. Why, by the way, are none of the billionaires’ media outlets calling for bombing Tel Aviv, since everyone acknowledges that that Israel has nuclear weapons? (27 minutes)

Liberty Net: December 10, 2011

by Kevin Strom, WB4AIO

THE LIBERTY NET is an oasis of free speech for radio amateurs who care about the kind of world that our children will inherit. We don’t always come to the table — or go away from it — agreeing with each other. But we always come away with increased understanding — and a growing sense of community. And, as civilization declines and tyranny spreads, we’ll need plenty of both.

Marty, N2IRJ’s phone patch brings voices to the air who are temporarily without antennas or transmitters. If you’d like him to patch you in, just drop him a line via the “contact” tab at the top of this page.

Listen: Liberty Net 12/10

Here are some excerpts from this week’s discussion:

• A Black Georgia Congressman has recently claimed that merely stating in public that Obama has lied “will bring about a resurgence of the Ku Klux Klan.” (27 minutes)

• Would switching our nuclear power stations over to thorium reactors make them just as safe as conventional power plants? (1 hour 13 minutes)

Liberty Net: December 3, 2011

by Kevin Strom, WB4AIO

THE LIBERTY NET, if our download statistics are any indication, is becoming more and more popular, and that’s reflected in the many new amateur radio operators checking in and sharing their views.

Listen: Liberty Net 12/3

Below you’ll find a few samples of the ideas brought up this time on amateur radio’s longest-running issues-oriented net, on the air since 1974:

• Newt Gingrich seems to be getting a huge amount of unwarranted publicity from the billionaires’ media these days. Having been an indirect employee of the oligarchs for decades, there is little doubt where his loyalties lie — hence the publicity, and the likelihood that he will be the oligarchs’ “anointed one” for the Republican nomination. (18 minutes)

• Guess who a leading Jewish group excluded from their Republican debate? That’s right — Ron Paul, of course. They say he’s “too far outside the mainstream,” despite the fact that has trounced all the other candidates again and again in polls, debates, and money raised. (20 minutes)
