Keeping In Touch

Radio and Internet CombineI was neither joking nor exaggerating when I stated in the Me3 Trilogy that 5.5 Billion would die. This year we have seen increasing evidence of the hidden Influencers, exercising the power they have to disrupt our lives.

But back in November 2019 I saw the need to prepare for our normal communications to come under attack. I saw the need to set up my own communications facilities.

At first, last year, I obtained a small HF Transceiver. My background includes twenty years as a radio technician in the Royal Australian Navy. I worked on much larger equipment there.
XIEGU G1M SDR TxRx RadioThis first rig was a portable, 4 Band Software Derived Radio set. I made a small station desk, that I could carry in the back of my vehicle, if I needed to work in the field.
Mobile StationThe little XIEGU worked well, using an end-fed wire antenna from my balcony to a tree in front of my home. But the wire was objected to by neighbours, so that had to go.

To maintain contact then, with the local Amateur Radio Club members, I obtained a Dual Band VHF/UHF Hand Held unit – a BAOFENG UV-9R.
BAOFENG UV-9RBy then we were entering the Covid-19 lock-down period but I needed to test my programming of the Baofeng radio. Against the backdrop of Self Isolation and police fines for being outside without an “essential” purpose, I found myself juggling with the idea of driving round the corner to a nearby hill, to get a clear path to the club Repeater. Would I risk a fine, or invest in something with more power and versatility.

That day I saw a person was fined $1652 for being out of their home.

The sensible answer was to buy an All Band All Mode Base Station. I settled on a YAESU FT-991A, for only a few dollars more that I would risk by using my Baofeng from the street round the corner.
YAESU FT-991ABut my problems were not all solved. With no wire antenna, I had no way to use the new radio. The solution suggested was to construct a Magnetic Loop Antenna which I could set up free-standing, inside my home.

But for a MagLoop antenna, you do need a Vintage Air-Dielectric Variable Capacitor. This was where a member of the local amateur radio club came to my aid. He gave me a couple of old Broadcast Radio Capacitors to see what I could do with them.

Variable CapacitorsThese old capacitors are needed because MagLoop antennas can generate high voltages around the tuning element, which would cause a present day variable capacitor to go up in flames!
Wired CapacitorNo trouble so far with these monsters and I doubt they would break down easily even if I transmitted on higher power. They are so big it takes two boxes to enclose them – I set one box piggy-back on the other, sealed with hot-glue.
Then I needed to experiment with the actual size of the antenna. I have tried a couple of versions. The best one has a Loop dimension of 322 centimeters. It operates across a range of 3 MHz (80 meter band), 7MHz (40 meter band to 16 MHz (20 meter band).
By the time I had obtained some sort of result with the Magloop, I had found that it was possible to access the Club Repeater Network via a spare room in a corner of my home.
Radio StationFor the record, while the YAESU is perhaps a more impressive piece of rig, when I tested the XIEGU GiM this week, 5 watts output, connected to the magloop antenna, which operates inside the brick walls of my home, it worked quite well for Regional Communications.

Outside my local region, I would need both a better (long wire preferred) antenna and perhaps more power. The point to keep in mind though when dealing with radio range is that:
a. you cannot transmit far on an antenna that won’t receive; and
b. if the frequency is not right, more power will still not get you there.

My entire station however can be bundled into my car and taken “Bush”, where I can operate on solar powered battery, with a wire antenna strung in a suitable tree. Under the right conditions, I could reach stations hundreds or thousands of kilometres away.

So what is the context of this Post?

Today I saw a report that the authorities in California, USA, are attempting to close out Amateur Radio Operators (HAMS), particularly by closing out their access to Towers on Public Land, for locating their Repeater Antennas and infrastructure.

Now we see quite plainly that when ‘progress’ is made in America, there is a follow-on effect across the remainder of Western Civilization. So we should expect bureaucrats in Australia to attempt the same thing.

We see also, such energetic attempts to deny free speech even on Social Media that the President of the USA has said new Laws might have to be used to prevent Twitter and others from denying even him and the People, from sharing their views in public.

Meanwhile we see Communist China using it’s ample means to shut down any and all dissent, even international dissent. This also includes trade embargoes to restrict foreign criticism of how China mismanaged and failed to publicise the emergence of this Covid-19 pandemic. The latest in a string of Corona Viruses unleashed upon us.

So in the midst of heightened international tensions and nations balanced on a war footing, we see attacks on all sides upon the Communications Channels available to the Public across the entire world.

And I have stated quite clearly, in the Millennium 3 Trilogy, that this will continue to deteriorate globally.

Meanwhile the effectively unnamed and unseen perpetrators, who manipulate and control all this evil in the world, continue to believe that they can rule the earth. The United Nations, one of their Instruments, also calls for the global population to be lowered by 5 Billion!

Whether it be by abortion or chemical castration or induced civil conflict or by outright war, the intention is to “Cull” Humanity of it’s non-essential members.

They don’t intend that YOU speak about this publicly nor hear of it in private, by any means.

So I invested in Communications Equipment.

During this, Humanity’s Final Emergency, I will keep the lines open where I can, for as long as I can.

But this is a War between Good and Evil and as I have stated before: 5.5 Billion people will die, leading the Survivors in to a thousand years of peace.
