200 person aerospace company mix of manufacturing and engineering. two person IT also handles facilities and property management. We get by OK. Get a good ticketing system for help desk shit. (kayako.com is what we use, the in-house version on a VM.) Use clonezilla for builds. Keep shit as simple as you can. Outsource as much as you can.
You said the answer: coax cable.
Just like Heinlein's Stranger in a Strange Land today is a good read but not that special. But back in 1960 when it came out, holy fuck!
Don't know where you live but in my state it's at 97.5% compliance.
The 'e' is silent, thus invisible.
So he should us Special Information Tones Tones?
Are you sure that wasn't just coax gain?
Volvo. 'nuff said.
"...the app itself uses over 2GB of ram after it caches all of its data."
And this is why we can't have nice things.
Plasma sets put out so much RFI that it makes working HF hell if one is in your neighborhood.
Nope, operate under State authority for the tribal EOC. Wouldn't want to lose my ham ticket or radio-telephone license. I'm also good with my county radio officer. I just don't play the vest & badges game. When the shit hits the fan, they know who I am.
It's not like I don't have my ICS-400 and shit.Hell, I even put up a D-Star box on the tribal tower so we can go digital with the county EOC. You just won't find any laminated card around my neck or me checking in each week on the net. When you've built broadcast stations, radio becomes just a tool.
I haven't talked on the radio for months. But I still know how to pass traffic.
Yeah, mine's mostly floppy these days, too.
I have Turbo Pascal for CP/M on an 8" floppy if you need it.
You are incorrect, uninformed, and perpetuating misinformation.
And you, sir, are what we call an ECommie. Get your reflective vest and callsign hat, and jog off. We don't need no stinkin' badges. Your radio ain't going to dig you out of a fallen house. What you need is a good set of demolition tools, food, water, first aid and tarps. Get to know your neighbors and help them when the shit hits the fan. CERT training can help but just don't go all happy with it and make it your whole life. Enjoy the now.
If you want a radio for emergencies, then get one on your state EOC frequency so you can bypass all the ECommie wannabes.
I've got a VHF-low Maxtrac channeled up for Washington State CEMNET and the Red Cross. I'll be grabbing that before I grab my 2m.
