Hi Mike, go in to Robinson Timber, the truck parts section, they can help you with an antenna. what you get will partly depend on your vehicle, Magnetic mount ones work pretty well, then there are the stainless steel whips, twin co-phased and lots of other options, but I would keep it simple for now. You could set a c b in the seat, plug it in to the power source in the cab, and run the coax out the window to a magnetic mount antenna placed in the center of the roof of the cab, easy to set up, relatively cheap, and it would let you know if you can reach anyone. you might also google C B clubs for the area you are interested in.

Thanks writers. So, I get one for the truck and drive the area to find out if a base can hear me. I buy a $50 mobile unit for the truck.

What about its antenna, not the base antenna? Should the mobile unit boost its sending power? If so, what are costs and options?

I will do this then seek information about the needs of a base station to monitor the mobile unit. Ideas?

CB with a 100 amp boost might work, it will depend on where the nearest base stations are. You can buy a nice little Uniden CB from General Trailer for around 50.00, You Might need a directional antenna, I once talked from Hershberger meadows above Prospect Oregon into Medford with one hooked to the booster, with an antenna we put up in a tree, we had it as communication for the vet checks on a horse endurance ride. I had one as a kid where we lived in a canyon 5 miles out of Myrtle Creek Ore. And I regularly talked to a friend in Myrtle Creek.
If you know some one who has one in their PU have them break for a radio check in the area you need to check out, and see if you get any response. Alternatively you could put an add in the local paper asking for help from local CBers, if they know there is a need they may well step up and help. Big Al

Thinking ham radio, but with no generator/power that is an issue.

If it is just solely for potential health issues, maybe get a SPOT emergency GPS transmitter.

Sat phones are pretty expensive, not my area of expertise but I am guessing
$500-$1000.

Thank him for his service to our country!!!

Satelite phone would be your best optiion.

My brief search on Google under CB radio left me in doubt about a situation. Our caretaker at property about six air miles and ten dirt road miles in mountainous Trinity County has health issues. There is no electricity or phone service. He has a truck.(he’s a 79 year old vet…(Marine). I want to get him communications that work. It seems like the antenna is key not the unit itself. Used equipment is okay as cost is an issue; however reliability in bad weather trumps all.

Comments or suggestions welcomed.

From Martin Armstrong:

The Pension Crisis is far different from the Mortgage Crisis. Now we are fooling around with the very issue that even destroyed the Roman Empire. Only a moron would promise pensions to state workers and then expect that they can just tax people forever so there was no need to actually fund such things. We are looking at state and municipal bankruptcies like Detroit where 50% of tax revenue was going to pensions. They keep raising taxes because they also refuse to reform or reduce the size of government. This causes a Phase Transition in the cost of government. We are going to see taxes soar in the USA to the point they will most likely DOUBLE. This will drive more and more capital underground, reduce LIQUIDITY future that is the destruction of a cooperative civilization, and this will further reduce the VELOCITY of money. This is how ALL empires, nations, and city states have died – by their own hand.

For better real-time data acquisition from the ground monitoring devices, gas sensors, equipments used in the Underground Mines, and most importantly for locating the trapped miner, the deployment of Wireless Sensor Networks (WSN) is very much indispensable. The traditional methods using wire communication was found to be inefficient and ineffective at the time of mine hazards such as roof falls, side falls etc... Before implementing any wireless system, the variable path loss indices that imply the losses of signal in different environment should be determined for better localization. Localization of low cost sensor nodes using Receiver Signal Strength Indication (RSSI) model gives some error due to the shadow fading of signal.

I reported that the object of the IRS is now to regulate accountants doing your taxes. The real idea is to expand the Draconian measures that any foreign bank that does not report what Americans are doing will be subject to have their assets confiscated in the USA. This has resulted in throwing out Americans from especially Europe. Now the IRS is seeking to impose regulations on accountants and then they will impose an obligation that they will also be required to report anything to the IRS. Barclays Plc has announced that it will cease offering wealth management services in about 130 countries by 2016.

What is entirely possible is the Sovereign Debt Crisis could be pushed off into the next 8.6 years wave insofar as the USA is concerned. The current wave may see the crisis in Pension Funds hit and we may then see the confiscation of all 401Ks as well 2017. This will be seen as a measure to regain national security by buying back bonds held by foreign governments. That way, if the US wants to invade someone, it will no longer have to worry about how to fund the debt.

California – Tax Man Cometh – As Always Their Mistake You Still Pay

Posted on September 15, 2013 by Martin Armstrong


California small business owners and investors are facing $120 million in back taxes after a 20-year-old tax exemption was struck down by an appeals court last year. That’s right. Government always wins. They make a mistake, and you still pay. We would be better off with the Mafia in charge – at least you can negotiate with reason.

Since 1993, California provided that you paid only half of the capital-gains taxes due on sales of stock in businesses with less than $50 million in gross assets. The hitch was that the business must keep at least 80 percent of payroll costs and assets in the state. In August 2012 the tax exemption was ruled unconstitutional ob the basis it interfered with interstate commerce. That was about as rational as a metal patient on drugs. If the court ruled it denied equal protection in the sense of “justice for all” I would agree with the decision. But to claim it interfered with interstate commerce by trying to keep people in the state with incentives is nonsense. New Jersey has an EXIT tax. You leave, and they want more taxes. That will never be ruled unconstitutional because the Supreme Court has held taxing powers are unlimited in a fundamental sense – nobody in government ever met a tax they did not like to suppress others with.

As always, in comes the bureaucrat looking to get even with those in the private sector for having talent they lack and money they get only by taking bribes. These are typically the people who were stuffed in gym-lockers in high school and it is pay-back time for them. They hate people who make money – look at one in the eyes. You see hatred paired with stupidity.

Faster than a speeding bullet, the state’s Franchise Tax Board was signaling plans to collect retroactive taxes dating back to 2008 from more than 2,000 small businesses licking their chops for an expected take of $120 million. The small business owners screamed and turned to seek a legislative solution. In February state tax collectors offered to hold-off on issuing tax summons that would not down include interest and penalties provided they signed waivers extending the statute of limitations so they could go after them later. The state Senate passed a bill that reduced the total amount of retroactive tax due by only 76%. So you see, the bastards just cannot keep their hands out of other people’s pockets.

The USA cannot grasp that this unilateral attack on Syria will set in motion the next stage of the Sovereign Debt Crisis that will ultimately lead to your pensions being confiscated when they cannot sell their debt to foreign governments.

Something you should know.

The G-20 summit has made a major decision that will enable the DEFLATIONARY destruction of the World Economy and life as we knew it. From here on out, the control of all data being collected internationally (including NSA) regarding the wealth of citizens worldwide, will be made available to every member state.Under the cover of terrorism, there is no profit in stopping terrorists. It is all about using them to further power. They are arming and funding terrorist organization in Syria. But if they turn those weapon against the USA, it will get more power.

Ostensibly, this is all about tax evasion in their mind for if they had everything there would be no budget crisis. Indeed, it is important that the community of G20 nations will assume complete control of the financial circumstances of each individual citizen. The summit marks a milestone on the road to full expropriation of citizens. The end is here. This is going to be the worse economic decline in modern history. They are hunting money everywhere and cannot see that they are shrinking the world economy and that means higher unemployment.

U.S. gold production down from January-May - USGS
The U.S. Geological Survey reports that May 2013 was the eighth consecutive month for gold price declines.


Author: Dorothy Kosich
Posted: Friday , 30 Aug 2013
RENO (MINEWEB) -

U.S. gold production dropped 4% in the first five months of this year, the U.S. Geological Survey said Thursday in its Mineral Industry Surveys gold report.

Total domestic gold production for the period from January through May 2013 was 89,200 kilograms (2,867,846 troy ounces). The state of Nevada led U.S. gold output with 64,900 kilograms (2,057,647 ozs) of production, followed by Alaska gold mining at 12,500 kilograms (401,884 ozs) and other states at 11,800 kilograms (379,378 ozs).

However, May 2013 production of gold by U.S. mines dropped 5% to 18,000 kilograms (607,649 ozs) compared with May 2012 with 18,900 kilograms (607,649 ozs) of gold output, the USGS reported. Average daily gold production for U.S. mines was 582 kg (18,711ozs) in May 2013, down from 609 kg (19,079 ozs) in May 2012.

In their analysis, the USGS noted that May was the eighth consecutive month that the average gold price decreased.

Some domestic gold mining companies announced reductions in production in May including Atna Resources, which deferred ramp up of the Pinson underground mining operation near Winnemucca, Nevada. Allied Nevada announced that it was considering scaling back development plans at its Hycroft Mine also near Winnemucca.

Politicians are clueless and their policies are more like strip-mining. They are destroying the economy right down to the foundation and fail to grasp that they keep raising taxes to support unfunded liabilities for state workers. This is destroying the productive sector of the economy to fund the sector that produces nothing to increase the national wealth.

The Major U.S. Banks Are Financial Hoods

Swaps Probe Finds Banks Manipulated Rate at Expense of Retirees
By Matthew Leising – Aug 2, 2013 2:00 AM ET

U.S. investigators have uncovered evidence that banks reaped millions of dollars in trading profits at the expense of companies and pension funds by manipulating a benchmark for interest-rate derivatives.

Recorded telephone calls and e-mails reviewed by the Commodity Futures Trading Commission show that traders at Wall Street banks instructed ICAP Plc brokers in Jersey City, New Jersey, to buy or sell as many interest-rate swaps as necessary to move the benchmark rate, known as ISDAfix, to a predetermined level, according to a person with knowledge of the matter.

By rigging the measure, the banks stood to profit on separate derivatives trades they had with clients who were seeking to hedge against moves in interest rates. Banks sought to change the value of the swaps because the ISDAfix rate sets prices for the other derivatives, which are used by firms from the California Public Employees’ Retirement System to Pacific Investment Management Co., said the person, who asked not to be identified because the details aren’t public.

By Kitco News
Monday July 29, 2013 12:11 PM
(Kitco News) -U.S. gold mine output was 17,600 kilograms in April, the U.S. Geological Survey said Monday.

April output was 5% under March production of 18,500 kgs. April output was also modestly below year-ago production of 17,800 kgs.

The average daily production rate in April was 587 kgs of gold, USGS said. This compares to March’s average daily rate of 596 kgs, the April 2012 average daily rate of 593 kgs, and the 2012 average of 639 kgs.

Spain Taxing Sunlight
Posted by Martin Armstrong


Spain’s Secretary of State for Energy, Alberto Nadal, has signed a draft royal decree taxing energy derived from photoelectric cells. If they can’t derive taxes from utilities, what the hell – tax the sun. Next comes a tax on clean air to breath to live. They already tax food.
-------------------------------------

Governments are having difficulty coming up with debt payments. All this is heading our way and is just a matter of time before new and expanded taxes become our obligations.

Squeeze the people.
