An hour outside of Nashville, Tennessee, down a dirt road and up a steep, curving hill in the woods, you’ll find fermentation guru Sandor Katz in a solar-powered log cabin cooking goat testicles for lunch.
The 12 students accepted to Katz’s early summer 3-week fermentation residency eagerly crowd around the kitchen table, watching him trim and slice the bulbous product, a gift from a nearby farmer friend.
They have come from as far as Costa Rica and Germany to pitch tents outside this log cabin and learn, in essence, how to incubate bacteria and grow mold into edible delicacies from the master himself. It’s hard to call one of the oldest forms of food preparation a trend, but home fermentation has been rising in popularity in recent years, among everyone from health-conscious foodies to high-end chefs.
Katz’s residents, for reasons varying as much as their origins, find themselves incubating tempeh by day and sleeping in tents in rural Tennessee by night. Katz, who is 52 and sports a striking, bushy mustache, grew up on the Upper West Side of Manhattan with parents who were both good cooks, his father the more experimental of the two. After the goat testicle lunch, the students again surround the kitchen table, watching Katz demonstrate how to make a wild hodgepodge of fermented beverages. First he pours a bubbling vat of sweetened raspberry liquid through a sieve into old Pepsi bottles; the next day it will be a lightly carbonated soft drink.
Part extreme dirt bike, part motocross racer, the original Motoped was one of my favorite discoveries of 2013. Jo Borras I've been involved in motorsports and tuning since 1997, and write for a number of blogs in the Important Media network. Gas 2 is a Technorati Top 10 blog, and part of the Important Media network of blogs working to make the world a better, greener place. You’re finished; connect the distant PL-259 to the pigtail adapter to your handheld transceiver and have fun!
I got the original dimensions and spacings for this antenna from an open-air boom-based yagi design  published by DK7ZB. After this experiment, I  adjusted all the wire lengths (7% shorter than expected for 146 MHz or 440 MHz as appropriate), rebuilt the antenna (to the dimensions given here) and the 2-meter antenna worked perfectly with an acceptable SWR around 2:1, a good bandwidth, and great forward gain (measured experimentally as shown below). The Prepared Prepper's Cookbook: Over 170 Pages of Food Storage Tips, and Recipes From Preppers All Over America! As an alternative that cost little and can be gotten for free, you can use cable vision wire. The only problem with cable vision wire is adapting PL-259 or BNC (the cable end connectors) to it. Although the forward gain of the Yagi does boost the signal considerably, probably the biggest thing is simply getting away from the electrical short rubber ducky.

I also stop and ask for tarps from guys putting up billboards when I see their truck parked under a billboard. I also get lots of free plastic sheet (Lexan, Acrylic and all kinds of plastic) from a company that builds display cases.
Oh well, these kinds of articles aren’t terribly controversial, but I hoped it would provide a really cheap way for people to get much longer radio communications in a pinch. The ARRL has an incredibly helpful YouTube video on getting your technician license, simply Google ARRL and technician license video.
The ARRL antenna handbook is a good book to have, it’s a bit heavy in HF antennas, but still a good book. The beam antenna above is good to have, but I would want a J-Pole to go with it so you can listen to signals from all directions not just one direction.
PrepperDoc you said you teach a class on getting a ham ticket, just wondering what age group the class attendees are? With smart phones and global net communications I don’t see many young people interested in ham radio. Have you thought of using the corrugated plastic sign material (like that used for campaign signs, or yard sale signs)? Over the years, he has studied all facets of survivalism, and has learned works and, more importantly, what does not work. This is in part an effort to reclaim something lost in the generations raised on convenience and processed foods.
After attending Brown University, where he studied history, Katz worked at the Manhattan Borough President’s Office. When he began teaching fermentation workshops, Katz was surprised?by the fear exhibited by his students, namely a fear of bacteria. He transfers another vigorously bubbling crock of liquid — a mead, made with?only honey, water and grapes — into a glass carboy to ferment. It’s a frame, in other words, with all the difficult engineering like mounting points, swingarm, and the Motoped’s patented pedal-drive system already in place.

The Roach is the latest in the company’s long history of offbeat customs, with post-apocalyptic styling that harks back to the motorcycle gangs in Mad Max.But it’s a classic case of appearances being deceptive. This is so the elements will NOT stick out the bottom and get bent, when the cardboard rests on the floor, until you have it mounted; the 2 meter elements will stick out the top.

RG-58 has a lot of loss at 144 MHz, it’s better suited to HF (30 MHz and below) frequencies.
I have a friend that has it ran up an 85-foot tower feeding a set of 13-element beams and he is getting great results.
His calling is to show ordinary people how to become better prepared for an uncertain future. To combat the notion (as he writes in “The Art of Fermention”) that bacteria are “our enemies,” he holds classes and workshops around the world, traveling for roughly half of the year.
The motor has been overhauled, fitted with oversized forged pistons and new clearances cases, and the transmission has been rebuilt with back-cut gears for smoother shifting. At the base of the antenna is a small black 50 ohm resistor with an isolation capacitor with the helical wire attached. He is the author of four books The Prepper's Guide to Surviving The End of The World as We Know It,  31 Days to Survival, The Dirt Cheap Survival Retreat, and The Prepared Prepper's Cookbook. They came to satisfy their own curiosity, to improve their understanding of the science of edible bacteria, to get healthier and to reclaim what they consider a lost art. He hands out samples of a tropical beer called “mavi,” a rye bread-based drink called “kvass” and a kombucha, or fermented sweet tea, the class made the day before. I asked for some from a guy driving a cable truck (saw him at a gas station buying pop) and he gave me some odd ends of it and I ended up with several lengths of it.
Many came because they want to be more self-sufficient in a world of uncertainty — uncertain weather, growing conditions and food sourcing. And although it’s essentially a road bike, the Roach can also handle the dirt: the 19” rims are shod with Maxxis DTR-1 dirt track tires, and new shocks and modified forks from Progressive Suspension keep the rubber on the ground.
Icon has built three bikes to complement its new Icon 1000 range—a collection of premium quality apparel that marries off-kilter retro styling with the latest materials and technology.
The Chapter Jacket, for example, has the cut and feel of classic leathers from yesteryear, but cleverly conceals the latest D3O armor in the shoulders, elbows and back panel. Their support will keep the steady flow of customs and classics of all genres heading your way. Icon’s backing has already resulted in a big change behind the scenes here—a switch to a dedicated server that’s better able to handle the ever-increasing traffic we’re seeing.
