I know we have these threads all the time, but what is interesting is the topic of HAM radio is now being purged from 4/pol/. 4cuck mods are moving threads on HAM to /bant/. If kikes don't want us to talk about it then you know it is worth discussing.

The thread got to the topic of software defined radios was brought up. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Software-defined_radio
>Software-defined radio (SDR) is a radio communication system where components that have been traditionally implemented in hardware (e.g. mixers, filters, amplifiers, modulators/demodulators, detectors, etc.) are instead implemented by means of software on a personal computer or embedded system.[1] While the concept of SDR is not new, the rapidly evolving capabilities of digital electronics render practical many processes which were once only theoretically possible.
>A software-defined radio can be flexible enough to avoid the "limited spectrum" assumptions of designers of previous kinds of radios, in one or more ways including:[2]

>Spread spectrum and ultrawideband techniques allow several transmitters to transmit in the same place on the same frequency with very little interference, typically combined with one or more error detection and correction techniques to fix all the errors caused by that interference.
>Software defined antennas adaptively "lock onto" a directional signal, so that receivers can better reject interference from other directions, allowing it to detect fainter transmissions.
>Cognitive radio techniques: each radio measures the spectrum in use and communicates that information to other cooperating radios, so that transmitters can avoid mutual interference by selecting unused frequencies. Alternatively, each radio connects to a geolocation database to obtain information about the spectrum occupancy in its location and, flexibly, adjusts its operating frequency and/or transmit power not to cause interference to other wireless services.
>Dynamic transmitter power adjustment, based on information communicated from the receivers, lowering transmit power to the minimum necessary, reducing the near-far problem and reducing interference to others, and extending battery life in portable equipment.
>Wireless mesh network where every added radio increases total capacity and reduces the power required at any one node.[3] Each node transmits using only enough power needed for the message to hop to the nearest node in that direction, reducing the near-far problem and reducing interference to others.

If you don't have a HAM license now is the time to get one. If you are an engineer or programmer (and I know we have several of you on mlpol) now is your chance to work on something that will make a real difference in our cause. A viable uncontrollable alternative to the internet will be a game changer.

No license OP.

Of course it is, but the government will be forced to be more overt with their censorship and they won't be able to hide behind their proxies like google in the case of HAM.

Ham Radio. Awesome.

I been very interested in ham radio for a while now. Most of my interests came from just chatting with other radio heads that did the radio refits on a lot of WWII warships, then finding out that my grandfather was the radioman 1 on a US destroyer in WWII really all ties it together.

Now though with all the hoopla, I figured would be an even greater time to study up, and get the Amateur Extra license. I don't just want the technicians or the General, I want full range. I don't know much about Ham, where to and how to get your license and all that it will take but shoot, if there are others out there just as enthusiastic, then I hope that this will turn into some sort of amateur radio club.

So I am going to share this. I been watching videos off of youtube of W4EEY https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCI3DKjqB4OLY2UXm2KqDpwQ Which started videos October of last year. I JUST started watching so I haven't got that far yet in watching. In his first introduction video, where he introduces the class as well, he mentions that there are places in the USA which you can test remotely.

https://nescitech.org/exam/
https://kl7aa.org/vec/remote-testing/
https://glaarg.org/remote-sessions-examinees/

In order to take the test remotely however, you would need a bit of tech knowhow to set up multiple cameras and a phone so that they can see your workspace and you as you test. If you can't get to a place to get a test in person, then this is an option.

Another option is to use here: http://www.arrl.org/find-a-club

If you are an American to find a local club and test site. There is one near me that meets up every last Thursday of the month and is doing testing.

The great thing about the tests, is that you pay once, and right then and there will be told if you passed or failed. If you passed, you can then take the next license and don't have to pay again. So if you have the time and the smarts can only pay a small fee and get your extra license the same day.

I also bought this https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/162595087X/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o00_s01?ie=UTF8&psc=1

For you Americans, I would advise getting a few books as well then we can study together.

And if you are already Ham Licensed, Share your handles! Because you will also be a great influence in helping others here study and we can contact you when we too get official license.

Sweet!
Do note, this is the Technicians Class. This is the Entry Level license. But note too, that you MUST take the Tech level test to then proceed to get your other level licenses.

Thank you for sharing. I will read this tonight. The book I ordered will arive by tomorrow so I am happy about that.

I just ordered myself a small Baofeng UV-5R Plus Qualette. This is a very small walkie talkie ham radio which I hope will arrive quickly since it just a state away!

I hope in learning for my license I can listen in, and if the shit hits the fan, it be a great bug out tool.

I also heard some other things about the radio in that the FCC doesn't like that you can remove the whip from it, that it allows you to listen in and transmit on non amateur channels and some other hoopla which I am unsure about.

So it won't be my primary unit as I would like one capable with more wattage for when I get my extra license. I got the manuals for the technician, general and extra. I am shooting for the moon here.

they have easy ways of doing this, this is not a blackpill this is a problem that needs solving even if its hard. the whole point of the liscence is to clamp down on people, the only real way around this problem is either mass civil disobedience (or as I like to call it, the wizard shotgun/siren solution) so that they cant do anything about it, or infiltration of the people who do the testing and botching the liscence registry.

You can make a DIY J-pole or a Ground Plane (G-Plane) antenna pretty easily (see The ARRL Antenna Book or use Googlag) Yagi-Uda antenna is good directional antenna which is good for "fox hunt" and increasing range.

Police continue to suppress free speech, protect antifa and shut down small businesses, and still you can't help but continue to suck police cum on a daily basis.. you are unironically the same traitor you accuse the left of being.

How to remove what? The Whip? The whip is a single pole long antenna. I can face palm so hard right now because I don't have my license at this time, but I am not that much of a noob. But I am not here to criticize I am here to help as everyone here should be doing so we all learn about radios.

The whip seriously just screws on. Easy peasy lemon sweesy. I need to get an adapter though. The whip is female and the radio itself is male. The larger antenna that I have is male which means I need to convert male to female. And no, my radio isn't transsexual.

So far I been trying to map the channels that actually do come in clear and I am listening into several people on 440.450 Mhz. A great way to hear in action how stations call other stations and also who is around me locally. So far I heard people that sounded like they were in their late 70's to seriously 7 year olds.

The radio came in late yesterday and I have been playing around with it in my spare time, I haven't got everyone's call signs that are near me but so far have listened in on KN4OSQ and KO4KVR.

What I hope to find is a radio that would allow me to access the CW bands as I wish to send and receive morse. I already am quite proficient at morse and trained many others. Hey that would be fun to do also, if anyone is interested in learning morse! Perhaps we can work something out.

Of course it is to control who can use it, and in certain context should be that way. In other context can limit actual free speech. The part of control even I wish, is so dumb asses don't do the way of radio the way of Television. Sex, Drugs, Profanity, Toilet Humor, and total degradation of the airwaves. That is not what the Amature bands are for.
But to actually have a convosation with others and speak freely with out selling your soul to Facebook, Twitter, Amazon, or any other social media outlet; well this could be a viable option as long as it is all civil.

What worries me though is with the whole "war on domestic terror" and how anyone that supports Trump is no implicit in as being a terrorist, well watch what you say as everyone can hear and they got your number already.

You can't send encoded messages as they say over the air so don't go pulling out your 3 rotor enigma machines from the Krigsmarine anytime soon. No XJDI LDDK SHEI GKQX GVLS JUYE messages or anything. However you can still send encoded messages. Just have to get smarter!

Prepare your speeches or convosations, have a cypher and in your speech you can have something like 1W 2S 3P for first word second sentence, third paragraph and have certain words hidden along a story about you baking cookies the other day and how a bit of baking soda can go a long way. To the adverage listener they will only hear the story about cookies, to another with the cypher however, they would be able to decypher it. But you can't make it so obvious either. If you use words over and repeatedly like LOVE TRUMPS ALL and MY COOKIES TRUMPS OVER ANYONE ELSES. I think people will start catching on quickly.

Unless you plan on pirating the airwaves, there is no discretion about it. You have to register for a license with the FCC or any other government organization. https://www.fcc.gov/rofrn You must set up a profile and FRN which you have to provide your name and SSN. This must be done before you then take your license exam. After you pass, your instructors will send it back to the FCC which then you will be assigned a permanent call sign. Though the type of license does determine the type of call sign such as a 2x3 or 1x3 which as example KO(4)GUI vs W(3)LOX This is assigned to YOU and only (((YOU))) and no one else in all of the United States and the rest of the ENTIRE world has that call sign. But the government knows who you are.

So do you really think that you can be discreet about using Ham radio? No, absolutely not. Can you be discreet how you communicate to and from with others? Yes. Do you have to tell others exactly where you live? Nope, I can say I live in Miami or Huntsville or Louisville and still won't be able to pin point me unless you wand to use some sort of RDF like HuffDuff on a Marconi MDF-5, Oh but big bad RadioDirectionFinding doesn't exist goys... That just propaganda from the British to scare little old uboat captains, don't worry goys, remember to also turn off you Metox, or they will detect you via radar (eyerolls)

The only thing you need to be discreet about is how you intend to use Ham radios, not that you have one. Perhaps you wish to be a bit discreet about your set up as well if you are reaching into frequencies you aren't supposed to, or the power you are actually transmitting on but other than that, you CAN own a ham with or with out a license, but you can only TRANSMIT with one and only on certain frequencies.
