It's a drill, I repeat, it's just a drill.

That being said, things happen during drills, and nothing happens during drills.
The only thing im aware of going on during these drill dates are the atifa idiots running around doing stuff on the 4th.

Either way, here's a heads up!

Communications Interoperability Training with Amateur Radio Community Set



(arrl.org)-Elements of the US Department of Defense (DOD) will conduct a “communications interoperability” training exercise November 4-6, once again simulating a “very bad day” scenario. Amateur Radio and MARS organizations will take part.

“This exercise will begin with a national massive coronal mass ejection event which will impact the national power grid as well as all forms of traditional communication, including landline telephone, cellphone, satellite, and Internet connectivity,” Army MARS Program Manager Paul English, WD8DBY, explained in an announcement.

And that's why it's a good idea to at least know when things are going down. Even if nothing happens, thanks. It's good to be informed just in case.

Isn't that the same day as the hyped up ANTIFA uprising or whatever. I realized it's fearmongering but still, the dates are exact.

Ya, I think the Antifa thing is on the 4th.

I even heard something a few days ago about a Anonymous mask march thing on the 5th.

I am aware of the mischievous happenings that have been known to take place during drills, however a c.m.e. is at the moment not as significant as an e.m.p....wonder if there is some correlation as the two would produce similar results to the power grid...the big difference is that one would be regional and one would probably affect the whole planet. I honestly think we are overdue for a massive volcanic motion at this point in time...especially considering the ring of fire and yellowstone...but I guess that is something we cannot prevent total destruction from at this point in time.

Our power was out five times in the last week for over an hour each time. The longest was three and a half hours. There were also some small outages, the lights went out for about twenty seconds then came back on. That happens when someone's house line goes down. That is the most times ever in a week since we have lived here, we have had it out for three days straight a few times, but not so many powerlines broken at different times.

So, can we put this off till after Christmas, I am tired of the power going out.

You know what happens when the power goes out for awhile?

You actually start thinking about stuff, like your life.
You might even go outside and meet a "neighbor".
Neighbors are the people next door. I know some of you old timers know this stuff but the kids these days..

It's always a coincidence when drills take place during terrorist attacks. Especially when it's time to Remember remember the 5th of November. I'd stay the hell away from public places.

I'm looking at the linked article right now, this seems to illustrate my point about how the licensed amateur radio operators are in bed with government. The HAM guys will be coordinating with Uncle Sam in a crisis or disaster, so as a prepper/survivalist citizen I wouldn't advocate getting a license and using their frequencies, unless you want to be a government snitch. It's good to listen to the HAM chatter with a receiver, but I wouldn't get involved.

From the article:


During the exercise, a designated DOD Headquarters entity will request county-by-county status reports for the 3,143 US counties and county equivalents, in order to gain situational awareness and to determine the extent of impact of the scenario. Army and Air Force MARS organizations will work in conjunction with the Amateur Radio community, primarily on the 60-meter interoperability channels as well as on HF NVIS frequencies and local VHF and UHF, non-Internet linked Amateur Radio repeaters.


If you are going to communicate with two-ways for personal use, I advocate using the unlicensed frequencies and staying away from the HAM radio club guys. They are going to be gathering local intelligence information and helping the government, they likely wouldn't have much time to help you.

Old timer here.

I remember neighbours. They were other humans that lived nearby that would smile and speak every time they saw other people. You knew everything about them and their lives because all your family grew up with all their families.
Sadly almost extinct these days.

In their place are mute strangers that move through life gazing at their phone screens and wearing a headset full blast. Seeing nothing around them, hearing nothing around them. How will they communicate when all technology gets fried to a cinder?

On topic.
If I was a radio ham I'd be a bit wary of co-operating with military operations in a disaster scenario, I'd be wondering if they really need my co-operation/help in an emergency situation, or if this is just an exercise to identify all the amateur radio buffs out there by getting them to come forward voluntarily under the guise of assisting with communications in a 'bad-day' scenario, in order to take control of all radio ham equipment. Then they will have total control over any information floating through the airwaves should a real bad day situation befall us.

ATS radio hams, don't step forward. Hide your rigs and twigs.

But then I'm a conspiracy theorist and an ATSer so it's normal for me to think these things.

Blast from the past:


Lights out
A-ha
Blast, blast, blast

Lights out
A-ha
Blast, blast, blast
Lights out

Dancing in the dark
To the radio of love
Dancing in the dark
To the radio of love

Things do happen during drills, but, as far as I know, it's always found out after the fact. Never once has a posted known drill ever had an incident.

Neighbors...

That's why I am glad I retired to a very rural area.

I know all my neighbors by first name and we all get together from time to time.

If I need help, all I have to do is ask....if they need help, all they have to do is ask.

The 4th is a full moon sooooo anything is possible but we will be camping anyway unless the snow's too deep to get out.

My electric company outage map. Very unusual to have 0 people out in the upper left corner. Have it on my phone too. If a job sites dark no sense in going.

Power outages

hmmm I didn't see any earplugs mentioned because you know there might be some loud noise from people screaming

Not true. At all. They almost all are posted in advance. Just because you didn't see it, doesn't mean it wasn't posted or published.

I miss living in a small town,I had neighbors just like you describe, they even helped us unpack the moving truck. I tell you I have never had neighbors like that in a big city.

All pre-planned to drag people down into a doom porn fear factor emotion.

There is supposed to be something amazing happening 3rd-5th Nov and good things will happen to people who are optimistic.

If emotions are dragged down then people will miss the opportunity to better their lives.

So ge tting involved with the ham radio guys could be a good way to get some inside info since they work directly with gov, maybe get a lead on some resources since uncle sam has em all. Thx 4 the tip.
