Seriously guys...if we ever hope to stand a chance at countering TPTB, we MUST do more to THINK LIKE THEM in the scenarios we generate that is
intended to help the masses (well ourselves really as the masses are STILL ASLEEP for the most part). With that said, YES I do believe that it would
be outright foolish of them to think that they could do something so bold as to just strip us of internet access...
I can see how some sort of "NATURAL DISASTER" could do the job at causing various "outages" throughout the Nation where an estimated time of
repair (ETR) could literally be days if not weeks out. AS IN they too know that it would be outright foolish to think that they could just walk in
with some piece of "legislation" empowering them to just turn of the internet....that is why they would never approach the objective in such a
fashion, they would simply create the necessary "crisis" that would just so coincidentally provide the cover needed in order to successfully
accomplish said goal.
SO YES we STILL need to consider even what we might initially view the "impossible" from happening....happening ya know? Remember we must really
begin to think like the enemy if we hope to successfully resist/counter the enemy. Thinking outside the box in search of solutions to our problems
should be the order of the day....everyday. Thanks
With that said...I too have been kind of tossing this possible scenario around in my head over the last month or two...essentially from the very
moment I had heard of our current criminally corrupt American governments wishes/intentions of gaining the the ability to shut down/severely
restrict/control our internet access. In addition to the OP, or basically in addition to the OP's suggestion of Radio, my wife and I have discussed
purchasing some sort of HAM Radio/shortwave radio giving us both a transmit and receive capability. A radio that could broadcast in the VHF/UHF/HF RF
frequency spectrum would be ideal.
Gone are the days with having to have chassis mounted radios with separate transmitter/receivers/couplers/power supplys/etc because with technology
today...you can get those capabilities all within a hand held.
The Harris Falcon II RF-5800U-HH:
The RF-5800U-HH is a small, lightweight UHF radio built on the popular Falcon II architecture. Applications include closein air support, urban
assault, and counter-terrorism missions. 5W output power and continuous coverage in the 225 MHz to 450 MHz frequency band ensure that the Falcon II
radio can provide reliable, secure voice and data communications in places that other radios can’t reach.
Outside of the internet and all other forms/means of being able to stay connected/communicate, that is where I will be putting my money. Just
understand though that actually having the radio is only the first step. Ensuring that those in which you wish to maintain contact with/your main
element are also equipped AND that you establish a Comm's Plan of sorts so that you will be able to build and maintain a successful circuit (one in
which I would STRONGLY recommend having some sort of "frequency hopping" included in order to minimize jamming/deliberate interference so that
successful two-way comms are maintained, and to also make it somewhat harder to locate you.
Same thing with antenna placement. I would recommend establishing both a local and remote antenna capability as well as doing everything you can to
encrypt your voice communications (both digitally and in code that will be included as a part of your established comms plan). It can all go pretty
deep from here. If any of you are working towards a goal such as this and require more information, please feel free to hit me up and I will call
upon my experience to aid you as best I can in setting up and maintaining an effective comms node
