It means that the feds want to take over all means of communications, including this one (the internet). That isn’t going to happen, no matter how hard they try. As long as I have a source of electronic parts, I can get a signal out, and no one can stop me. The genie has been let out of the bottle.

My guess:

Maybe this is why the FBI will be shutting down parts of the internet on Monday. “This is a test, for the next 24 hrs... blah blah blah... this is only a test”

The virus warning is just a cover up for this EO.

Each and every state shall form a militia,to be defined as a “Continental Militia” that receives no funding nor direction from the Federal Government.

This Continental Militia cannot be disbanded by any other branch of the Armed Forces.

And those states shall train and equip its ranks to defend that states borders from invasion or usurpation of a higher elected office on the Federal level.

Give me 4 minutes with a car with a coil and I can make a spark gap generator and communicate like the guys in Cuba used to do.

If I have to do it from scratch, including building batteries, it might take a day, not counting cigarette and coffee breaks and lunch.

Got Morse?

I am reading it right now but not sre what it means. I notice it revoked an order President Reagan did and ammended another. “b) Executive Order 12472 of April 3, 1984, as amended, is hereby revoked.

(c) Executive Order 12382 of September 13, 1982, as amended, is further amended by striking the following language from section 2(e): “in his capacity as Executive Agent for the National Communications System”.

Here is what it means.

It means I despise Barack Obama a little more than I did before knowing he did this. I didn't think that was possible, until now.

Every day, drip drip drip. And to think there are people who will not support the Republican Presidential Candidate because he “is just as bad as Obama”.

Really? There are two guys, one of them HATES AMERICA AS FOUNDED and the other is a RINO. Yeah, they're identical twins. Geez...

Come November, what will be, will be. It will be the beginning or the end depending on your perspective.

I have my doubts the man would concede even if he lost in a landslide. There's NO WAY he will say the american peope have spoken.

If Obama loses he will surely blame republicans.

7.1 MHz is a good place to play. Math is easy, antennas are easy, coils are quick to wind, and receivers are actually easier than some other frequencies.

I'm not talking xtal controlled tube transmitters. Spark gap transmitters and cat's whisker receivers.

Does a 6 meter rig, rx and tx in an altoids can sound like a DXer? Longest I ever worked a station with it (CW obviously) was 400 miles, back when we had sunspots.

If I want DX, I'd put up a 100ft tower and slap a monster yagi on it.

I do like playing with milliwatt power homebrew transmitters.

Fun times. Keeps me off the streets. ;)

You know, much as I agree with you and am ready to vote for the RINO...I am really, really starting to wonder if we are ever going to make it to November.

And even if we do, there’s 2 more months before he has to leave, which he won’t.

I do believe the Devil is in the white house, and no law means anything to him.

0bama can issue as many EO’s as he wishes, he can pontificate and make all the proclamations his ego will produce but in the end there absolutely WILL be one or more loyal military officers who will not violate their Oath to “preserve, protect and defend” the Constitution of the United States, and they will do whatever becomes necessary before total darkness descends upon our Land.

Take that to the bank (if your bank is still open ;).

Sec. 5.6.

Sorry, I didn’t mean to sound like a smart alec. I don’t know what it means either, but he’s got the authority to put a commission together to come up with ways to do things in times of emergency, blah blah. The commerce clause has already been warped to give the Executive branch the power to regulate telecommunications, hence the FCC (part of the Dept. of Commerce) already has the ability to control radio, TV, phones, and the internet. And they report to the President, so this isn’t exactly a shocking development. The sticky part is - who determines what is an emergency and under what circumstances could the President could take control of things? That seems to be the kind of question this commission will attempt to answer...

Lots of spark gap guys from Cuba used to hang out there, right under the CCCP, until they got caught and killed.

I would never break a law tied to a treaty like the ITC agreement. I've had a licence since forever.

Having basic skillsets is important, though.

Freedom requires skills. 73's.

My question is...If Obumbo shuts down the Internet in the USSA, how will it effect the net internationally?
Other then FR and some Email contacts, a US shutdown would not have so much impact on me.

If Obama loses, look forward to ten weeks of Executive Orders that will make your head spin.

I'm sure he will also be Pardoning a few Black “Political Prisoners” who are convicted Cop Killers.

No doubt in my mind.

This makes sense. No one is stopping him, so he’s simply continuing to take, take, take. Dictators are like that.

Sorry for the gross political incorrectness, but can anyone name a prominent black national leader at the executive level who did NOT become a dictator? I mean in ALL of world history.

It doesn’t mean Obama is GOING to become a full dictator, no, but if he does not I believe he would then be the first or second in world history who did not.

That’s just a guess, and I’ll welcome it if someone corrects me.

My old S-line has 6146’s.

I have some 807’s, but there are better ways to generate a signal than those.

Need PC boards, I did that stuff for years. Still have material and lots of descrete components.

Wow, you just made my memory do a back-flip.

My Dad had an audio power amp he was very proud of, which had four 807's in push-pull-parallel, a couple of massive transformers (power and output, of course), a pre-amp/phase-splitter (6SN7?). I recall the amp being associated with a mono "Voice of the Theatre" system. He had it hooked up and running for many years, but retired it in favor of a smaller stereo receiver sometime in the 1970's.

I worshiped that amp from the time I was a kid in the 50's until he passed away in 1996, but when my sis and I went through his things, the amp was nowhere to be found. I was heartbroken; I imagine he or someone tossed it believing it had no value in the modern age of solid-state amps.

*sigh*

“Spark gap transmitters”

Did you ever see a real spark gap transmitter?

I did.

Knew a Ham who actually operated one before they were outlawed.

No, but I have other radios and a PK-232MBX that can fake a 110 baud TTY. Take me a while to dig out the serial converter and remember how to make a linux terminal window talk to it.

I dislike SSB and AM since I'm hard of hearing now.

Spark gap is pretty much CW only. And unlawful these days.
