If a civil war brakes out will we even have acess to the Internet?

2018-08-01 08:02:03 UTC  

@crazyBoer No but shit i would love to learn. Really helpful skill.

2018-08-01 08:03:16 UTC  

we can have local communications sorted

2018-08-01 08:03:45 UTC  

ctwug and jwug could help provide coverage along with mesh wifi networks

2018-08-01 08:04:55 UTC  

if a few people still have big pipes out (doesn't take much, fibre is widespread) but that will all most likely be cut

2018-08-01 08:04:55 UTC  

Perhaps we should focus on the baiscs first firearms, food, and medical care?

2018-08-01 08:04:55 UTC  

Ditsem! @crazyBoer, you just advanced to level 7!

2018-08-01 08:05:08 UTC  

communication is more important

2018-08-01 08:05:23 UTC  

2 way radio?

2018-08-01 08:05:27 UTC  

otherwise panic

2018-08-01 08:05:46 UTC  

walkie talkies are good, smartphones are great

2018-08-01 08:06:23 UTC  

smartphones can work with wifi etc and are nondescript

2018-08-01 08:06:44 UTC  

My father was in the army. he always said that the first step in conquest is taking over the radio stations.

2018-08-01 08:07:04 UTC  

also they include GPS and video cameras which can be good for emergency and PR respectively

2018-08-01 08:08:10 UTC  

I was reading the book Wardog by Al J Venter and one of the stories talks about intercepting enemy radio communications in sierra leone, editing it and rebroadcasting

2018-08-01 08:08:22 UTC  

causing major panic

2018-08-01 08:08:38 UTC  

so secure communications and keeping heads level is key

2018-08-01 08:08:56 UTC  

dunno if I'm talking too much @Graeme the Guerrilla ?

2018-08-01 08:09:09 UTC  

Also horses are awesome.

2018-08-01 08:10:23 UTC  

Attack and retreat back into the wilderness.

2018-08-01 08:10:29 UTC  

on your horse

2018-08-01 08:10:45 UTC  

🏇

2018-08-01 08:10:59 UTC  

Rob no offence you cant eat communication. He is right food shelter, warmth and safety or the corner stones of prepping. If you inclined try look at a few videos on you tube. Try learn TCCC tactical combat casualty care. You will face in a hostile area war like injuries. Gun shots. Burns gashing wounds

2018-08-01 08:11:50 UTC  

point taken, but ultimately in conflict can be impacted by low morale which is unrelated to the situation on the ground

2018-08-01 08:12:07 UTC  

we've had preparation, we have water tanks down here 😛

2018-08-01 08:12:20 UTC  

Boers have always been known for fighting in small ragtag groups.

2018-08-01 08:12:45 UTC  

Also try make friends with some US or European Ex Military guys on Social media. they have alot of info and maybe can help with logistics. Suggest a bug out bag with a US IFAK Individual first aid kit

2018-08-01 08:12:47 UTC  

most of us can go on a waterfast for a few days(week?) without much issue

2018-08-01 08:13:12 UTC  

You need to start documenting teh situation and build allies from across the water

2018-08-01 08:13:18 UTC

http://www.meddev.co.za/ These guys sell basically everything you need for an IFAK including a hug medical back pack for soldiers

2018-08-01 08:15:14 UTC  

Suggest also joining suid landers

2018-08-01 08:15:39 UTC  

just from my readings of the mercenary history in africa in the last 50 years, communications trumps logistics, because it is a dependency of logistics. The RUF had logistics in Sierra Leone and the EO boys confused them, when they heard the RUF general saying 50 trucks were arriving and only 4 did, it demoralised the enemy

2018-08-01 08:16:00 UTC  

What is the name of the prank call site again that allows you to change your caller ID I think it could be usefull.

2018-08-01 08:16:44 UTC  

This is not military grade but works Unless you go for Motorola which will cost you more

2018-08-01 08:17:19 UTC  

how far does it go?

2018-08-01 08:17:30 UTC  

5KM give take

2018-08-01 08:18:34 UTC  

what about we go in the voice chat to avoid all the typing

2018-08-01 08:19:04 UTC  

enough to get you out of a bad area. you need to focus on getting out of cities and towns safely with your family. that is first the most important. You can worry about soldiering later.
