So I feel this is the most important subsection going so far, we need to establish a BROAD network of communications, but the question is what platform? What does everyone have at their disposal, telegram, HAM radio IDGAF what do we have

2020-04-27 21:57:48 UTC

There is a telegram chat.

2020-04-27 21:58:13 UTC

I also use Signal, Wickr, Fort Knoxster

2020-04-27 21:58:29 UTC

Links to access?

2020-04-27 21:58:42 UTC

I use Wickr as well.

2020-04-27 21:59:00 UTC

What we need is an IRC server that runs off of TOR Relays.

2020-04-27 21:59:14 UTC

I could do it but I currently dont have the funds.

2020-04-27 21:59:17 UTC

If you go to the facebook page I know a link is there for telegram. I'll try to get one and post it here

2020-04-27 22:00:08 UTC

Bridgefy is my preference, but I'm open to learning about other preferences.

2020-04-27 22:00:26 UTC
2020-04-27 22:00:41 UTC

Doesnt share as a link. Not sure why

2020-04-27 22:00:58 UTC

try http:// ahead of it

2020-04-27 22:01:33 UTC
2020-04-27 22:44:25 UTC

If you want to use a secure message protocol thatโ€™s not reliant on a social network. XMPP is a versatile one. I use Pidgin with OTR.

2020-04-27 22:45:00 UTC

Why not use something basic but functional like an IRC Sever that runs of tor relays?

2020-04-27 22:45:11 UTC

That is also an idea

2020-04-27 22:46:00 UTC

I have HAM since I Storm Chase

2020-04-27 22:46:02 UTC

Still based on someone else securing and hosting the network

2020-04-27 22:46:20 UTC


2020-04-27 22:47:04 UTC

Iโ€™m not much with computers tbh, but if someone could explain how to set things up Iโ€™m down for whatever the group decides

2020-04-27 22:48:02 UTC

XMPP is like an IM protocol that you can use and host without relying on an network like Telegram or FB

2020-04-27 22:48:35 UTC

Using a program like pidgin you can create accounts and conferences rooms on a computer or server and invite users to connect from their device.

2020-04-27 22:48:39 UTC

The thing is not many people are using PC's so we have to brainstorm something phone friendly but still secure.

2020-04-27 22:49:06 UTC

Itโ€™s 2020 my guy

2020-04-27 22:49:49 UTC

I mean, Iโ€™d definitely prefer to use my phone if at all possible

2020-04-27 22:49:56 UTC

Discord has an app for both iPhone and Android. One nice thing about it is you can do a notification that will broadcast to everyone who has the app.

2020-04-27 22:50:05 UTC

Discord isnโ€™t secure

2020-04-27 22:50:21 UTC

depends on what you're communicating.

2020-04-27 22:50:25 UTC

Admins of Servers need to communicate securely via Wickr, Signal, or something else.

2020-04-27 22:50:46 UTC

Nothing posted here should be incriminating what so ever.

2020-04-27 22:51:42 UTC

If wickr is secure I can definitely use that

2020-04-27 22:52:08 UTC

And if wickr terminates your acc?

2020-04-27 22:52:56 UTC

Is that common?

2020-04-27 22:53:14 UTC

Doesnโ€™t matter. Itโ€™s possible is this issue

2020-04-27 22:53:37 UTC

We should be careful about outsourcing communication

2020-04-27 22:54:07 UTC

Oh I agree there

2020-04-27 22:55:56 UTC

Wickr doesnt leak information. From the best of my understanding they couldnt even if they wanted too.

2020-04-27 22:56:17 UTC

Hence why if you forget your account info your fucked because they save absolutely nothing.

2020-04-27 22:58:33 UTC

I've got a list of every Intel member's fb id up until this last week.

If the Boojiebastard groups get yote, we can split the list and start inviting them here over DMs


Platform's a tricky thing. I wager most of us lack the technical proficiency to host anything of consequence, and very few of us want lemp'd.

I propose that rather than a "boog platform", we subdivide topics into a federation of forums and chatrooms dedicated to specific topics hosted by different people, and with no explicit boog branding.

Strong encrypted com's don't scale well, and should be kept to your local groups with strong vetting.

2020-04-27 22:58:53 UTC

For everyone who doesn't already know, a Mewe has been set up by i believe the TBL group, here's the link

2020-04-27 23:28:40 UTC
2020-04-27 23:28:46 UTC

Get interconnected

2020-04-27 23:29:10 UTC
2020-04-27 23:48:07 UTC

Found it!

2020-04-28 00:16:15 UTC

Yes itโ€™s alive ๐Ÿ˜

2020-04-28 00:18:10 UTC

I want you to join my group on MeWe: https://mewe.com/join/bigloosradioshack

Basically a guide to forming groups.

2020-04-28 01:17:13 UTC

https://freetofindtruth.com/groups/boogaloo/members/all-members/ I started a group on another platform for redundancy...

2020-04-28 02:14:35 UTC


Not quite sure how to get this to link directly to the telegram group but copy paste into a url then switch to the app and you should be g2g.

2020-04-28 02:34:48 UTC

So I saw the cheap $25 radio and got mixed reviews. What's the least you can spend for a radio what's worth a fuck.

2020-04-28 02:41:09 UTC

If you're going above Baofeng, the Yaesu brand has a good following. Same with Wouxun.

2020-04-28 02:42:13 UTC

When it comes to cheap radios, steer away from "Onn" brand. They're trash

2020-04-28 02:45:10 UTC

Thanks ill look into both of the other brands

2020-04-28 03:29:33 UTC

So around $100 is the minimum starting price.

2020-04-28 03:31:13 UTC

> So around $100 is the minimum starting price.
@[TX]YimYam You wanted something over the $25 starters, this is the next tier.

2020-04-28 03:33:46 UTC

But they are worth while right?

2020-04-28 03:35:08 UTC

Ham operators swear by them. You will eventually upgrade if the bug bites you.

2020-04-28 03:37:41 UTC

Ok cool I wanted a good one for emergency use and there is no signal where I hunt and my buddy and I both wanted one. Thank you so much.

2020-04-28 03:41:42 UTC

Read up on MURS, FRS, and GMRS. Those are FCC regulated frequency bands. MURS and FRS are unlicensed while GMRS is licensed but no test. It is a $70 application fee good for 10 years.

2020-04-28 03:42:29 UTC

Hmmm I have some reading to do

2020-04-28 04:09:27 UTC

It's quite fun and useful to get two radios and see how well they work out where you hunt. You'll probably be disappointed at the distance at first but then you buy better antennas and learn how to make it work for you

2020-04-28 14:27:39 UTC

I found that the Motorola T465's are awesome. Multiple ways to charge them, 35 mile range, around $85 for two of them. There's multi-packs up to 8 and 10 on Amazon I believe.

2020-04-28 14:35:03 UTC

For the price, baofengs may be more versatile. Of course there's way better, stuff like higher end Motorola, kenwood, yaesu, and so on

2020-04-28 14:36:06 UTC

Yeah, Iโ€™ve fucked with Motorola and thatโ€™s some badass shit.

2020-04-28 14:42:12 UTC

Motorola's real products, not the consumer grade soccer mom road trip stuff, is built like a tank. Very robust equipment.

2020-04-28 14:43:08 UTC

My dumbass coworkers still manage to break them though >.>

2020-04-28 14:44:22 UTC

Me being around a FD, I can attest

2020-04-28 14:47:28 UTC

The T465 are like, medium-duty consumer radios. Not total junk like most FRS radios, but they're still limited by the FRS rules (2 watts, fixed antenna) and the price indicates they're not quite as durable as a $3000 APX. But for hunters or whatever they probably work great

2020-04-28 15:51:40 UTC

Legal is up on mewe

Legal Advice & discussion:

2020-04-28 16:18:59 UTC

Comms specific if you are also using MeWe.


2020-04-28 17:15:14 UTC

Thoughts on this model? Keep in mind I have to buy two.

BaoFeng GT-3TP Mark-III Tri-Power 8/4/1W Two-Way Radio Transceiver with 7.4V 3800mAh Battery, Dual Band 136-174/400-520 MHz True High Power, Upgraded Chip, High Gain Antenna, Car Charger https://www.amazon.com/dp/B014J5RJ7I/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_i_x0fQEbXHTT6PR

2020-04-28 17:54:53 UTC

If it fits your needs, go for it. Personally i have a uv-82 but whatever you go with, I'd suggest getting an extended battery and a nagoya antenna

2020-04-28 17:59:48 UTC

You need the cable too right to program it?

2020-04-28 18:00:21 UTC

Yeah, and a free software called chirp

2020-04-28 18:01:10 UTC

Generally best to program it to gmrs frequencies since that's what most people use but if you have a team, you can use whatevers in your radios range

2020-04-28 18:02:27 UTC

Technically illegal without one of the ham licenses but fuck it, they can't find you unless you're broadcasting pirate radio.
That being said, getting your license will teach you everything you need to know for the most part

I got the uv82hp with the na771 16โ€.

2020-04-28 18:19:01 UTC

GMRS is not a Ham license. It is a no test required application fee of $70 for a ten year license. Your license can be extended to cover family as well.

2020-04-28 18:32:22 UTC

shoot wrong one, yeah you're right

2020-04-28 18:32:32 UTC

still suggest picking up a book though

2020-04-28 19:23:14 UTC

A lot of the basic questions people ask can be answered if you study for the technician exam. Not saying you have to get the license but if you can pass a practice test you'll know you are at a good starting point for learning

2020-04-28 19:23:54 UTC

You don't NEED a cable and chirp, but it's super annoying to program Baofengs by hand

2020-04-28 19:26:28 UTC

I can second the UV-82, have been using them for years. Plenty of batteries available- does the GT3-TP take standard shape batteries? Also paying extra for 8 watts is not the best use of money, get a better antenna first. My opinion

2020-04-28 19:28:01 UTC

Judging by the pictures it looks like it does take standard UV-5R batteries which is good

2020-04-28 19:31:15 UTC

I'm definitely not part of the radio community or anything but I've always been told "wire is cheaper than watts"

2020-04-28 19:31:47 UTC

I believe you are allowed to use FRS and GMRS at low power without a license

2020-04-28 19:32:15 UTC

FRS, yes, but not with Baofengs. GMRS needs a license. Technically.

2020-04-28 19:32:56 UTC

There's literally no way for them to find out though. Unless you're broadcasting some radio 24/7 at high power, someone gets annoyed with it, calls up the FCC, and they have the one guy for your region drive out all over the city searching for it, you're fine

2020-04-28 19:35:31 UTC


2020-04-28 19:36:10 UTC

And the FCC enforcement bureau is getting smaller every year. Avoid malicious interference and you're fine

2020-04-28 20:42:18 UTC

I recall when the FCC cracked down on the import of Baofeng radios they admitted in a bulletin that the country is flooded with radios not type certified for FRS/GMRS that are using both services. The FCC basically said they didn't have the enforcement ability and would only address the worst offenders but there was no way they could address the widespread usage of "illegal" radios.
