Comms for Hacking & Profit Part III: Being Digital

My life priorities have a very explicit order:

  1. God
  2. Wife
  3. Kids
  4. Work
  5. Everything else

The above, of course, is idealistic versus realistic. Ask God. He will tell you.

Currently, the Everything Else is being occupied by amateur radio. I recently invested in Icom’s D-Star and have been, like a dictator drunk with power, allowed free reign into a world that is at least to me, endlessly fascinating.

See below:

Let me preface what I am about to say with this – using this technology outside of the scope for which it is licensed and governed in a federal violation. Ok, now, on to what is possible.

Like the Net, just about everything with regard to this digital mode is logged, tracked, and easily queried by the authorities. However, there are ways around that system of logging, mush like the Net as a whole.

Imagine what FREFOR could do with a global, digital, and encrypted radio net. Just imagine the possibilities. One could even envision the possibility of our very own Darknet.

As I go down the digital radio road, I will do my very best to elaborate on what I figure out what is possible. It will be up to you to determine the application and ultimately, the value.

Resistance is the Path of Least Resistance

Like Mike said, opportunity:

As for me, I also see opportunity. Personally, I would like to thank the Clinton, Bush and Obama administrations for spreading out all this military hardware into the hinterland where, in an emergency, the armed citizenry can get its hands on it without having to trespass on a military base.

Listen to Deacon fellow III. Bob the local deputy will forget to put the lock on the armory, but that really doesn’t matter because his response to you taking it won’t be much of anything as it will likely take them days to figure out that it walked out on a Tuesday when the moon was full.

Imagine the disruption. Imagine the cover up as the local constabulary would be remiss to tell the truth that the suppressed and full auto G36 they got from dotgov up and disappeared.
