Not everyone has free flowing streams and rivers for reliable power generation so steam provides a good alternative. Wind power requires sustai...

Wow, that is so cool! Did you make the engine/boiler yourself? From scratch? It sounds from your video like you make and sell them. .
They are not my videos. I am just sharing the videos of others as I thought it would be a good topic.

I kinda like it. I also heard good reviews about this earmuff.

They are a pretty good deal for the price. Since they use batteries I don't leave them in the truck. Foam earplugs are good enough for the BOB

Re: Articles of Interest at the "American Partisan" site

What about jamming radio, cell phone, or internet/wifi access? Especially if combined with other attacks. Maybe hacking and infrastructure attacks? I could see them jamming the uplinks to satellites but cell and wifi signals on the US Mainland are over 225 miles away and harder to disrupt from Cuba

Re: DTMF remote control

The relays work and have so far proven reliable, important since there's no positive confirmation from outside the building that the alarm was turned off or on after the tone is sent.

Re: Check your batteries, even the ones you have stored

I think this good topic should also extend to batteries in your cars, generators, cell phones and so on. Take the time to perform the checks and ensure there are no surprises on the day you will need to count on these energy storage marvels.

Re: Check your batteries, even the ones you have stored
