Citizen C.I.A.

"Calling all Americans of above-average intelligence
College graduates, apply today
Come decimate dictatorships and overthrow regimes
In exotic far-off places the vacation of your dreams
You'll assemble puppet governments and play the hand of God
We're an equal-opportunity crime fighting squad
Citizen C.I.A., Citizen C.I.A
Now I've trained an army for my kids to fight one day
We'll teach them all of our secrets, and then we'll walk away
We're knee-deep in guerillas, yeah the party never stops
United States of America, undercover cop
Citizen C.I.A., Citizen C.I.A
You said I'd be working with Sydney, man this sucks"

Moving Sucks

Well, I have a new job.

It requires me to move.

The Catholic charity that runs the "spiritual recovery community" (or family, as they sometimes refer to it) wants to make me an actual employee.

My job will entail moving from the present country home where I live now (another part of their network) to the farm where all the new guys arrive right out of detox, rehab, and jail.

I will be required to live on premises as a night watchman , and facilitator to monitor attendance at mandatory AA meetings, educational groups, and to make sure the place is being kept clean, orderly and quiet.

The financial incentive, while not making me rich, is in my situation a Godsend.

I have a single room in a farmhouse, how I've managed to accumulate so much shit is a miracle in and of itself.

Unfortunately, this will put a crimp in my online activities (which isn't really necessarily a bad thing), as there is very intermittent cell service at the farm. I will probably need to buy a WiFi hotspot for my room.

In the big picture, I get to offer a hand up to those who are sick and tired of wasting their lives, as I once was.

Thanks to all my friends here for making life a lot more fun.

New digs -

get a picture of

P.S. - I'm still me in here!

Sacrificing a Chicken in Every Pot

Happened across the channel of the guy with the funny hat, he is actually very knowledgeable.

The other guy is the chicken sacrificer. Notice the guy with the funny hat starts chanting before the interview, I assume he is creating a circle of protection to keep him safe, upon which the Colonel Sanders magician takes a big hit from the bottle.

Edit - he is not creating a protective spell, he is saying the other guys magical name.

"Go to War" Sirens accidentally sounded at Camp Casey, South Korea

Omaha World Herald- W Post

By Alex Horton

A U.S. Army base in South Korea accidentally blasted an emergency siren Thursday night instead of the somber notes of taps, officials said, igniting brief panic on the base amid North Korean leader Kim Jong Un's threats of an unwelcome "Christmas gift."

Taps, the melancholy bugler's song played at military funerals, was supposed to be sounded on Camp Casey's announcement system at 10 p.m., as is custom at Army installations to mark the end of the day, said Army Lt. Col. Martyn Crighton, a spokesman for the 2nd Infantry Division.

But Crighton said "human error" instead prompted the sounds of an emergency siren wafting through the freezing air throughout Camp Casey, the closest U.S. Army base to the North Korean border — and a likely prime target for missile strikes in the event of an attack.

The mistake bewildered service members on base, who said in a Reddit thread posted soon after the incident that soldiers were "riled up," and some ran through the halls in full uniform before the error was realized.

County Comm GP5 Government Pack

I have one of these with government markings.

I believe they were for embassy people and spooks.

It works very, very well and I feel like Jason Bourne when I play with it.

Virginia Radio Amateur will Recreate 1906 Fessenden Christmas Eve Broadcast

Virginia Radio Amateur will Recreate 1906 Fessenden Christmas Eve Broadcast
The Canadian inventor, experimenter, and entrepreneur Reginald Fessenden has been credited as the inventor of radiotelephony. Fessenden claimed to have made his first voice — and music — broadcast on Christmas Eve in 1906 from Brant Rock, Massachusetts, although his account is disputed. As he has done each December for the past few years, Brian Justin, WA1ZMS, of Forest, Virginia, will transmit a program on 486 kHz, under authority of his FCC Part 5 Experimental License WI2XLQ ito commemorate Fessenden’s accomplishments.

Justin will transmit for at least 24 hours starting at around 2000 UTC on December 24, with a repeat transmission on New Year’s Eve likely, “keeping in step with what Fessenden was reported to have done on both nights in 1906,” Justin explained.Fessenden’s transmitter was most likely a high-speed “dynamo” or alternator — a predecessor to the later Alexanderson alternator — modulated by placing a carbon microphone in series with the antenna feed line to create an amplitude modulated signal. Fessenden a few years earlier had limited success making voice transmissions using a rotary spark gap transmitter. Fessenden fed his signal into a substantial antenna system erected in Brant Rock for his experiments. Accounts say on Christmas Eve 1906, he transmitted recordings of two pieces of music and read a verse from the bible.

Justin will use somewhat more modern equipment — a home-brew master oscillator, power amplifier (MOPA) transmitter based on a classic design from the early 1920s. It uses a UV-201 oscillator tube driving a VT-25 tube — a modern equivalent to a UV-202 — to generate “a few watts” on 486 kHz. His modulator consists of another VT-25, which uses a large inductor in the RF amplifier’s plate supply to serve as a Heising modulator. The audio program comes from a laptop computer.

“Heising modulation was used in World War I as an easy way to achieve AM in rigs such as those used in aircraft,” Justin said. “My particular Heising modulator can deliver only around 60% modulation, so an audio processor is used to help boost the average volume level ahead of the modulator tube.”
