Re: Overseas gig for ZSers -short fuse HOA

So, I find myself again looking for folks who might want to do some contract work. I'm looking for a couple of people with active secret or higher clearances and experience working with Cisco firewalls and/or Lenel access control systems. OEM certs are required. The gig is in Djibouti and should las...

Re: Home Security Camera System

The most reliable system is one where the cameras are POE, power over ethernet, They can be run off of a POE network switch that is located in a central area. They only need a single CAT 5e wire to operate. They would then be "pointed" at a DVR for recording. The POE switch would then be powerd by ...

Re: Goodbye from Kentucky

Who posts an angry goodbye thread? That's like sending an angry open letter to the editor of your local newspaper. I would respect you more if you called me a scumbag and sucker punched me in the face. But that's just me. :lol: As a newspaper editor, I received many goodbyes, many with the challeng...

Re: Critique my BoL Plans

As a homesteader, I recommend three books that will help you scale your project. Ten acres enough (1864) and Five acres and independence are great. The best though is I called the "The independent life and how to live it" and the diagrams provided for one, five and ten acre homesteads are what passe...

Re: ARRL 2016 Field Day

Is there any information available for the ZombieCon special event station? Many of us will be on the air during Field Day and it would be nice to know the station's call sign and any freqs/modes they plan to operate so we can be on the lookout for this station.

Re: Best Foods to Preserve?

I think potatoes are the easiest. Carefully harvested and dried they stay good over winter with no problem. They are easy to grow and prolific. Obviously, you'll need to supplement your diet nutritionally but potatoes are a good start. Onions store well too and the process for harvesting and storing...

Re: Looking for some ideas for a homestead pickup

Our 98 Ram 1500 has 200K on it and gets daily work on the farm. All it's gotten in last 10 years is new oil and filters. Here in Kentucky it appears that the order of preference is Dodge then Ford (250) with Chevy being a distant third. Goes great in snow but is a liability on icy roads. I blasted t...

Re: China MAY Put its Nuclear Weapons on High Alert

The logistics of power projection is the hardest part. Historically, very few countries have managed to do it across oceans (U.S., UK, France being the short list. Japan maybe for a short time prior to 1945.) In a former life I was the G5(Plans) for Marine Forces Korea and logistics drove everythin...

Re: Should ensuring food security involve a tractor?

We have a walk behind tractor, a diesel BCS, with the sickle bar and cultivator attachments. We've also had the rotary plow and hay rake attachments. This gear and 5 acres could easily feed a family. We've run this tractor for 11 years now and I've only changed the oil and filters. I get about 8 hou...

Whenever I could, I would trade an MRE for an Italian ration. In addition to the obvious attraction of 500 ml of brandy and 1 liter of wine, they had a toothpaste size tube of sweetened condensed milk that lasted forever and could even make usgi instant coffee taste good.

Enjoying this adventure. Nice catch on the lead configuration. I had one of these back in the 70s and it was a lot of fun.

I wholly agree that we get a lot of new radio these days for our buck but it is fun to play with the old stuff.

Quasi There is a lot of water in young asparagus and while a light frost won't hurt it freezing temps will. I'll get some pix tomorrow, but 10 days after our last freeze, unusable spears are still pushing up. I'd guess it has cut our production by 20-25% which hurts. It's probably costing me $40-75 ...
