I am happy to announce I am planning a regular podcast. My objective is much like others: to learn, share, and teach. I already listen to quite a few podcasts out there and I really enjoy them, but it always leaves me feeling as if I have my hand up in class and the teacher walks out of the room.
I was trying to decide what I could do about this, and it came to me that the real answer here (for me at least) is to start my own podcast. We can cover topics others are covering and break new ground on our own..
I am currently seeking guests for our show and even topics to cover..
Since hunting season is here I am currently looking for an experienced hunter (which I am not) to visit with us and talk to us about some hunting basics for survival, things like avoiding detection, field dressing, tips for your first hunt.
I am also looking for a 12 volt and Solar expert and someone with creative engineering experience!
I am very excited to have my first guest lined up Micahel Knight from the Portland Preparedness Center will be joining me for our first guest show. Topic to be announced.
If you know someone who would be a great guest please have them email me.

Catastrophe Network and The American Preparedness Radio Network (TAPRN) have teamed up to create a Standardized Amateur Radio Prepper Communications Plan. This plan outlines a standard set of frequencies that should be used by all preppers following a catastrophic disaster. These frequencies will serve as a meeting point where information about the event can be shared and actions between like minded preppers can be communicated.
This plan will not and cannot work if it is not widely publicized in the prepper community! All preppers must know and understand these frequencies in order for them to become common meeting points. This is your call to action, if you are a licensed Amateur Radio operator and a prepper, please spread the word about this new communications plan. Tweet about it, blog about it, and most of all…share the document!

IF THIS LINK DOES NOT WORK EMAIL ME I HAVE A COPY
The following are the frequencies that have been designated by Catastrophe Network and the The American Preparedness Radio Network (TAPRN):
- 80 Meters – 3.818 MHz LSB (TAPRN Net: Sundays at 9 PM ET)
- 40 Meters – 7.242 MHz LSB
- 40 Meters Digital – 7.073 MHz USB PSK-31 (TAPRN Net: Sundays at 7:30 PM ET)
- 20 Meters – 14.242 MHz USB
- 2 Meters – 146.420 MHz FM
Aside from the TAPRN nets held on 3.818 and their digital net on 7.073, formal prepper nets will not be held on these frequencies. However, future exercises and drills may be held on-air between preppers and preppers are encouraged to use these frequencies to coordinate activities. Along the same lines, during catastrophes, it is unlikely that a formal net control will be established. The Standardized Amateur Radio Prepper Communications Planoutlines protocols for calling and communicating with other preppers.
