The recent SurvivalBlog piece titled "Survival Tips for the Business Traveler",by F. Russell was well written with lots of good information. I also travel on business and didn't see anything I disagreed with but I would add a couple of items if you care to link my comments to the article.1) No matter how well you plan, if you travel much over the road you are going to be places where the fuel in your tank is not enough to get you home. Be that because of the distance you are from "home" or that traffic congestion or your attempts to find back road routes burns more fuel than normal. The assumption is that obtaining fuel, especially along interstates during a melt down will be Neigh on impossible as either the electricity is out and they cant pump fuel or thelines are so long that waiting puts you in danger.Build your own 12 volt fuel transfer pump (better yet build two). Go to your local auto parts supply store and order or purchase a fuel pump with as much GPM asyou can afford. The one I got was about $100 for the pump. Then purchase a goodfuel filter, a cigarette lighter "plug" with an in line switch and 25 feet of tubing. I mounted mine to plywood squares that are about 10" X 10". With that device you can pull up next to another vehicle or even into the gas station and putyour hose down into the ground tanks at the station and transfer fuel into yourtank. I am not suggesting stealing the fuel...this device has saved my bacon already.2) Cary a bicycle with you. You can go to pawn shops and get pretty decent bikesfor $40. Put some extra tubes and patch kits and bike pump in your BOB. I frequently travel to a city that is 180 miles from home. That's only a three hour drive but it would take someone even in good shape a long time to walk. IF you could cover 20 miles a day it would take you nine straight days to walk home. That'sa long walk. On a bike however its a much different matter. Riding a bike 100 miles in a day is a hell of a workout but it can be done.3) Consider putting an EMP ground on your vehicle, especially if you perceive high risk time frames.Carry an extra ignition coil, points, condenser, and spark plug wires to EMP-proof your vehicle. (pre-efi and computer),later vehicles will be inoperable in an EMP situation.4) If you have the resources, this may not be the ultimate road warrior machinebut its up there. I travel in a 2007 Itasca Navion (The Winnebago "View" is basically the same vehicle) At 24 feet in length its not much longer than my pickupand on the Sprinter chassis its more maneuverable than my pickup. Its Mercedes Benz 5 cylinder turbo diesel engine and Mercedes transmission run like a sewing machine. There are stories of people getting 22 MPG. I haven't done as well but did get around 19 MPG. Small enough that you can parallel park in downtown name the city but large enough to be fully self contained and carry a lot of stuff. Rest stops and truck stops are dangerous places...you don't need to "go there" asyou have your bathroom and your kitchen with you...the only stops you need to make are for business and fuel. If you have a large distance to cover in an emergency you can run that engine for days without shutting it off..do that in gas motor car and you could be in for trouble.Regards,GUNPAL Logo

Many of these countries transmit powerful signals that are some times beamed toward North America. These broadcasts can often be heard on portable shortwave radios. International broadcasters often cover stories not reported in the American media. If youuse or are learning another language there are many non-english broadcasts. These signals travel thousands of miles via the upper atmosphere and they may have static, fading or interference. These signals are also affected by the seasons, time of day and solar activity (sunspots etc). Broadcasters often change frequencies, languages and times. Any schedule would soon become out of date. I have never used a "schedule. In stead, I just tune around the dial and listen to any interesting stations.Usually good only at night:2.300 - 2.495, 3.200 - 3.400, 3.900 - 4.000, 4.750 - 5.060, 5.900 - 6.200, 7.100- 7.450Usually good day or night:9.400 - 9.900, 11.600 - 12.100, 13.570 - 13.870, 15.100 - 15.800Usually good when sun is active:17.480 - 17.900, 18.900 - 19.020, 21.450 - 21.850, 25.670 - 26.100Listing of English shortwave broadcasts sorted by time.Listing of English shortwave broadcasts sorted by country.Listing of English shortwave broadcasts sorted by frequency.An excellent web site: "Shortwave Monitoring Guide"SHORTWAVE EMERGENCY FREQUENCIESThere are many shortwave frequencies used for long distance emergency communications. AM and International broadcaster's transmit a carrier with two sidebands [lower / carrier / upper ]. Both sidebands have the same information therefore redundant. Shortwave frequencies use single sideband modulation ( SSB ). SSB removes the carrier and one sideband, only one sideband is transmitted. The advantage of SSB is a narrower more powerful signal. Disadvantages: SSB signals are harder to tune, when mistuned they sound "quacky" and when the talking stops the entire signal disappears. Almost all signals on shortwave are uppersideband ( USB ).
