The Latest and My D-Day Contribution of Feelz

Greetings!
Sorry for the paucity of poasting. It’s been busy around Ye Olde Casa De El Grande Campesino. Haven’t had fuck-all time to do any real poly-ticks anal-lysis.

Been trying to bust out 10 hour days at Glorious People’s Tractor Factory #187. I like either getting a full day worth of overtime, or if I need it, taking a day off with pay so to speak.

Also, Been working on the Prick 77.

Took it completely apart, and did the ‘basic Dash 20 Inspection’. When I ‘cracked the shell’ and pulled the ‘guts’ out of it to inspect it to make sure all the modules were in it, the interior was fucking pristine. Like as if this thing had never been opened/serviced since it was made!!!

I also got a battery pack that takes “D” Cells that powers it, and wow… I gotta say it works! I mean at least it makes static… I have to do a IRL transmit/receive test shortly. The -only- thing that was ‘broken’ was the little light that illuminates the dial when you put it on the “lite” setting. The bulb was blown, but I got a $5 replacement on the ‘Zon, which works perfectly. I mean, hell… it turns on, has static… I already had in my possession a mike and antenna rig that I use on my Falcon II.

I mean that’s one of the bonuses of being overseas soooo long I scrounged a PILE of ‘crap’ that I eventually ended up using. From NVG mounts and Rhino horns to fucking antennas and shit… even the Medical side I have enough bandages to mummify a fucking platoon…

Anyways… I painted it as well… I personally think it looks good:

And Of Course I had a spare Torii decal laying around…
Don’t you!?!

The ‘glow cube’ is courtesy of my bro the Tactical Hermit who sent me some slick stuff as a giftie… I appreciate it and you bro!

The next step is to bust out the Falcon… according to all things I read online, they’re both compatible as long as I turn off the ‘scramble/secure’ on the Hand-Held. And then try the Baofengs. Sapper bough like a ton of them on Prime Day… I think he got like a 8-10 pack of them for short cash. I mean, Granted, limited range, easily trackable, but ultimately disposable.

In fact now we have so much Commo Gear, the quarterly ‘battery service day’ is going to be instead of a single day, it’s going to be more like a full fucking weekend. I mean now I literally have an entire .50cal Ammo Can that’s stuffed with the rechargables. The commo gear itself is in a 40mm Ammo Can. Those are some big bastards and just my shit that I’ve ‘allocated/reacquired/scrounged/bought’ over the years has it filled to the brim.

Here’s hoping a CME/EMP the shit doesn’t get fried.

And yes, I know it should be/needs to be grounded but that’s hard in the middle of the living room or as Gretchen calls it “The War Museum.” Can’t zigzactly jab a grounding rod into the concrete floor Aye?

Unless one of you malcontents have a suggestion?
I’m all ears.

But as far as everything else, I’m “Keepin’ on Keepin’ on” as Dio says all the time.

I will say one thing about today however:
Per the Commander In Chief, June 6, 1944:

SUPREME HEADQUARTERS
ALLIED EXPEDITIONARY FORCE

Soldiers, Sailors, and Airmen of the Allied Expeditionary Force!

You are about to embark upon the Great Crusade, toward which we have striven these many months. The eyes of the world are upon you. The hope and prayers of liberty-loving people everywhere march with you. In company with our brave Allies and brothers-in-arms on other Fronts, you will bring about the destruction of the German war machine, the elimination of Nazi tyranny over the oppressed peoples of Europe, and security for ourselves in a free world.

Your task will not be an easy one. Your enemy is well trained, well equipped and battle-hardened. He will fight savagely.

But this is the year 1944! Much has happened since the Nazi triumphs of 1940-41. The United Nations have inflicted upon the Germans great defeats, in open battle, man-to-man. Our air offensive has seriously reduced their strength in the air and their capacity to wage war on the ground. Our Home Fronts have given us an overwhelming superiority in weapons and munitions of war, and placed at our disposal great reserves of trained fighting men. The tide has turned! The free men of the world are marching together to Victory!

I have full confidence in your courage, devotion to duty and skill in battle. We will accept nothing less than full Victory!

Good luck! And let us beseech the blessing of Almighty God upon this great and noble undertaking.

General Dwight D. Eisenhower, June 6th 1944
The D-day Pre-Invasion Speech

The saddest thing about it?
Be prepared… this’s hard to take but it needs to be said and shared:

Our country’s going to hell in a handbasket!”
“…that isn’t what we fought for…”

That right there
Fuck
Any wonder guys like me want to take up arms and start shooting motherfuckers in the fucking face???
Sgt. Dekle, USMC deserves(d) better.

God help us.
Any wonder why I’ve been dodging the news lately?
Jes’ Sayin’
And as an afterthought, Sgt. Dekle died about two months after that was filmed…Link HERE

Think About It…

More Later

  1. Couldn’t you just make a fake 110V outlet plug? Plastic for the two blades and metal for the grounding plug and use that for ground?

    1. dont even need to do that, just a simple plug with ground pin and only connect the ground pin.

      1. A little more to it than that. a standard 14 or 12 gauge ground lug is not large enough to carry a CME/EMP static discharge. You would need at least a 6 or even better a 4 gauge to make a difference, going to a 2 or 1 or even ought (0) gauge would be primo, but difficult to bend and snake through a house to a ground rod that is buried vertically 8 to 12 feet depending on soil type and underlying rock.

      2. And I wonder if any cme emp charge could would jump from live to ground since their adjacent as they route through house…

  2. “God and the soldier are like adored in times of danger, never before. When the danger is gone, and all wrongs are righted, God is forgotten and the soldier is slighted.” – Rudyard Kipling (I think)

    The lesson to be learned here is that this man, and all those like him, fought for nothing. Because the vast majority of western society, through three generations, have grown to be irreverent, haughty, greedy, spoiled little bastards who flip off God and Country at will. Kipling’s poem leads me to believe that it was always this way.

    So the time comes round again for another ‘cataclysmic’ battle. Another ‘War to End All Wars?’ Too bad. The fags, junkies, and lunatics those left wing bastards running things can look to them to fight.

    Me? I did my time, which wasn’t anything in comparison to better soldiers, yet it all amounted to the same thing. I won’t ever pick up a weapon in defense of the west again.

    Never again.

    1. Never woulda thunk I’d hear myself agreeing with all that, JL. And you’re right about it always having been this way too. We never learn. The west was not prepared for WW1 or the meat grinder that it became. Ditto for WW2. And here we are, poking at a Russian grizzly bear with record low recruitment and retention numbers. It will always be like this, I’m afraid…

      1. I dunno…. I have a feeling Leviathan is going to attempt to draft it’s citizens, only to find out how many people have revoked their USA card.
        … I have 2 sons about that age. They’re not going anywhere. We’ve already discussed it. Surprisingly, the (high school aged) boys talk about this on their own. They’re well aware of what’s happening, and how it may impact them. Interestingly, the one’s here all feel the same way – would rather shoot up uncle sugar’s 69th intersectional dildo brigade than hop a plane to die in Banderistan.
        Clown world has already collapsed, the decision has been made, they just haven’t gotten the memo yet.

    2. “I won’t pick up a weapon in defense of the west ever again.”

      Well, if it’s any consolation, none of us fought to defend the West…we fought to enrich the small hat people.

      1. WORD. Also, for their useful idiots on both sides of the aisle and in the White House.

      2. Problem with hindsight is you don’t have it until after you need it.

        But when you’re young and stupid….

      1. Been a few times I have cried with rage while beating thee shit out of someone. Of course, I was not a Marine, just a soldier.

  3. BCE, I was wondering about an antenna and a head set with the selector switch. We used to pick up German radio stations on our Pric-77 when the switch was off.

  4. I would say Faraday Cage but search says no for CME/EMP.
    A power line is down about two hundred yards away and arcing so bright it hurts the eyes, I thought it was D-Day fireworks.
    We owe it to those guys to smash the homegrown useless idiot commies.
    Dayam you know the defecation has struck the roto-oscillator when USMC is in tears.
    It isn’t fine.

  5. Old mate **DID** fight for what he now cries about.

    There’s a reason the so called Greatest Generation were reluctant to speak about what they did in WWII and why they will never be honest about their motivation for joining.

    1. My Dad joined so he could get training and food. He had never been as well fed before he joined the navy.

  6. I’m trying to remember if it was Germany or stateside…..but in the analog b’cast pre-cable pre-satellite TV days, we were able to pick up TV FM audio on the RT-524 & RT-246. The PRC-77 covers the same frequency range (30-75.95 MHz).
    Look up your local b’cast TV channels, then research the FM audio part of the station signal.
    Have fun!

    1. Unfortunately all parts of a TV signal are now digital due to the amount of $$$ paid to the FCC by equipment mfgs to mandate the change (both for TV and for Public Safety radios). Said mfg’s then got paid $$$*100K to replace all of the analog stuff.
      Shorter range, poorer audio quality (especially if the digital is also encrypted), and the signal is either there or not there…unlike audio where a trained operator can dig the voices out of the background dirt when necessary.
      Even HAM radio, once a bastion of “we don’t need any infrastructure” is being polluted by “has to have an Internet connection to reach more than 10ft” and “has to have a computer to enter any frequencies”.

      1. President Elect Toxic Deplorable Racist SAH Neanderthal B Woodman Domestic Violent Extremist SuperStraight says:

        Not this amateur. I’m still old-school non-internet analog.
        I’m working up to digital modes, but those still don’t involve internet.

  7. I wouldn’t let the prospects of a draft bother you too much, by the time WWIII starts it will be over before they can even begin arguing over starting one.

  8. Short-short version…. Twenty-five years ago, I had the opportunity to informally interview some WW2 vets and ask if what they saw around them bore any relation to the things they had been told they were fighting for (I had just seen Saving Private Ryan, and it got me thinking…).
    To a man, they answered in the negative.
    By this measure, and I continue to believe it was accurate then, there was writing on the wall to be read by those who could. It is only in the last few years, that it has become legible for anyone to see.
    The 69th intersectional dildo brigade has no idea how bad this get. They will learn, however.

  9. Grounding for EMP is misunderstood by most people. They read the EE literature on it, and assume you need tons of grounding without realizing that this is for devices that have penetrations for power and antennas so they can be used in the extreme environment. You are not going to be trying that. You want a box that stays closed. Skin effect does the whole job there, no ground needed. In fact, a ground might end up detrimental (prob not, but its another conductor.)
    Its like over pressure on a bunker. Yes, you need blast valves on it — if you are using an air handler. If you just want to bury shit against over pressure that doesn’t need to breathe, you don’t put ANY penetrations in the bunker.

    1. adding to this, line the entire box/vessel/container with packaging cardboard (including the lid) to isolate the contents from making contact.

  10. The EMP problem can be solved by the faraday cage.

    However, I suspect that SOP is several EMP strikes over an irregular timeframe to get “saved” electronics.

    I figure if your allies are far enough away that a whistle code or runner isn’t going to work, just how well can they arrive to help you in a serious situation. The pickup truck of buddies from 10 miles away is apt to be in an ambush if they are reasonably competent.

    I have some comms for listening but between my lack of understanding South American gang language-code and Chinese what’s the advantage?

    Advice?

  11. There is another message that Eisenhower wrote out as a contingency late in the evening of June 5, 1944 that never needed to be sent: “Our landings in the Cherbourg-Havre area have failed to gain a satisfactory foothold and I have withdrawn the troops. My decision to attack at this time and place was based upon the best information available. The troops, the air and the Navy did all that Bravery and devotion to duty could do. If any blame or fault attaches to the attempt it is mine alone.” Not many high officers now would take responsibility so head on and squarely.

  12. They shouldn’t of been running off to kill their brothers in Europe instead they should have been taking up arms against the (((bankers))) that just put them wringer and killed off a bunch of them…What is it with White Men that they won’t band together with their brothers and instead will go fight for people that hate them and want them dead…I just don’t get it, boggles my mind…

    1. If we had an answer for why such pernicious pathologies are extant in the minds of so many White people, and had a way to successfully counteract those innate tendencies, nearly all our problems would be solved.

      Regrettably, the greatest mind the world has known – that of the White Western European Man – which created all the great art, science and architecture, which invented and built all of the marvels of the modern world, is afflicted with a nearly fatal bug in its base firmware.

      This ends up manifesting as a tendency to do stupidly self destructive shit en masse. Their agreeableness to take on responsibility and suffer for causes that aren’t their own, has been their undoing throughout the last century, and continues unabated to this day.

    2. It’s the white-man’s savior complex… it’s an intrinsic fault? bonus? Not sure… these days it’s definitely a fault…
      Like that recent story of the older sister (age 14 I think) who saved her drowning younger siblings at the cost of her own life, or the Dad here in Florida (my age) who saved his girls from a recent (and all too common) riptide, and got his chips cashed as well…
      Mongoloids, Goblins, blaqs and Krainians all lack this… not sure if it’s genetic or what, but there is something that makes good Northern Euros do stupid things, even to the negative to themselves…

      1. Not really talking about sacrificing to save someone you love more about not taking our own side but fighting for someone else’s causes even when it’s too our own detriment…

        1. Well my point is even strangers jump in and die to save an ‘unknown’ and at the cost of their own… sorry if I wasn’t clear enuff… it’s been a long week

  13. If you do decide to put in a ground rod in the middle of the slab, use a hammer drill. Drive the rod, then use a bit of welding cable for the grounding conductor. Might be able to score a used piece from a welding shop. It doesn’t matter if the jacket is cracked or missing in places. It is quite flexible. Just be sure you know where all the services are under / in the slab.
