Antennas / Tacticool Antenna. (ABBREE)
« Last post by DragoSapien on Today at 12:42:22 PM »
 Check out this video and tell me what you guys think of this antenna.  I think it might be a good use for a backpack style of set up.  Not something I would use every day with my HT,  but definitely would come in handy in emergencies.

General Discussion / Re: Desert Rat Preppers is no more.
« Last post by DragoSapien on Today at 10:35:24 AM »
 I can tell you from experience having both the main website and the Facebook page does not work at all. The Facebook page will most likely take everyone away from the main page and it will die.  If your main page is getting some decent traffic I would stick with that.  The only plus to the Facebook page is that itís free and yes it has good advertisement potential.  Because of the nature of the site, prepping and  being prepared,  most of your loyal members donít even go to other social media websites so if theyíre regular on your site I would keep it.  My site started dying down quite a bit before I created the Facebook page and never did pick up after that. The Facebook page took off.  But hereís the big difference.  On the main site everybody discussed projects and teachings of their own personal life and prepping.  On Facebook everybody is just cut and pasting things they fine at a different site but nothing that theyíre actually doing.

FWIW, facebook and I will never interact.  I'll trust them about as far as I can throw a bull elephant, so even setting up an account for any reason just will not happen.  I'm a throwback when it comes to trust.

I don't like facebook for the tracking and filtering they use.
any prepared ideas seem to be filtered out...
or at least once they get noticed
if you are using facebook keeping in mind that, your best bet is only to use it to advertise this website

Digital Modes / DMR Prepper Talk Group on TGIF
« Last post by DragoSapien on June 23, 2019, 09:40:40 PM »
I can make a new talk group over on the TGIF server.  http://tgif.network/index.html

Im thinking about calling it MagComm.  ( Mutual Assistance Group Communications ).

What do you guys thing???  It will be a DMR Group to talk about all things prepping and ham radio.  A place for prepared hams to network by radio.  I know I know itís Internet-based but letís use it while we have it.  Social media has changed everything including ham radio.  This new digital age is proof of that.

If you guys can think of another name or a better one please let me know.

I thought about starting a Facebook page for Off Grid Ham.

My reservation is that the FB page would get a lot of activity, but that would not result in more visits to my website.

Off Grid Ham already gets a respectable level of traffic but I'd like to take it to the next level. I'm not sure Facebook would do that.

You may be right about FB.

 Well itís clear to me that social media sites have killed the private website.  I just remembered you have a Facebook page for prepared ham.  Maybe we should start using it.  I know the Ham Radio Go Box group on Facebook is full of activity.

 Same here with work.  Been so tied up doing things that I havenít even had time to think about prepping anymore.  As for my radios Iíve been able to take my digitals with me on the road and use my pi-star hotspot.
