Re: Transmitting Power Over Distance

Trump just put out an executive order to investigate ways to protect our grid from the Russian & NORK emp threat. As the entire public power grid needs to be protected, I suspect they will be making their findings public standards and this will all be public information: https://www.whitehouse.gov/p...

Re: Hurricane Preps

I finally finished the prep rotation. Lessons learned this year: 1. I can substantially reduce future purchases of D cell batteries by using the AA batteries in DCell adapters. That and finally phase out all but a few Dcell lights. AA flashlights are much better for all but a few uses. Just go to 1...

Re: Coal powered Generator - small / home sized?

Raptor, thank you so much for the very informative post. Those turbines look awesome. Any recommendations on boilers? I’m guessing that company (green turbine) will have plenty so I can reach out to them.

Re: Coal powered Generator - small / home sized?

Curious if OP has looked into a good gas conversion that can run an ICE? Actually now that I think of it you can do the same with coal if I'm not mistaken? I’m looking for things with 18 months of reserve power. The assumption is all utilities will be down for that time frame. If it’s outdoor (sola...

Awesome post Raptor, do you know what breaks the most?

I’m wondering if it’s an adjustment issue or “we need lots of spare parts & rebuilds” issue.

Coal powered Generator - small / home sized?

Does anyone sell or has plans for a home / personal coal generator (electricity). Coal is one fuel that lasts forever. Diesel lasts only 6-12 months. So it’s easy to buy coal and forget about it. Seems like all the coal boilers are for large power plants. Guessing 5 to 16 kilowatt range would be ide...

Penetrating 1/4 inch plywood at 40 meters this can definitely finish off a zombie.

https://preview.ibb.co/nh8fik/IMG_2944.jpg The new eLoran has an accuracy radius of 26 feet according to Stanford. That's similar to un-enhanced GPS. Is it possible to employ something like this on a more local level? The range on professional systems is huge. 800 kilometers which is enough for you...

Also, what recommendations would you have for me should i want to safely store off site? I would of thought a safety deposit box is the only way to go. For your own safety, please be careful how you answer this question.

Typing of the phone right now but look at the photo of the garage with purple lines. Or watch the video. That is impressive.

If this thing keeps its accuracy for "only" 2-3 hours that's plenty of time to scout a city for resupplies. Set your position when you enter, scavenge for food and then bug out to the country side. Give me a passenger side human GOOSE for real time navigation updates for added insurance. 2-3 hours o...

However, once in a blue moon F/A is a good thing. Like when you just feel like flipping that giggle switch. Or maybe, j...

Not my scenario. Maybe yours but not mine. I'm personally a fan of 28 Days Later Zombies. Body shots are legal with those.

Re: Ensuring sustained fire and gun life... water cooled jac

No... just no. Unless you're using squad tactics and simply using volumes of fire to suppress a target, a 240 would be worse in every way than a semi auto AR style rifle. Not only that, but it typically takes at least two guns hot swapping barrels intermittently to achieve proper suppression. Talki...

Any modern / current production options in semi auto available? The Ohio Ordinance M240 option is $16k and no spare barrels.

I'm not worried about semi as the are easy to convert.... Should society collapse.
