    According to The National Association for Amateur Radio (ARRL), elements of the US Department of Defense (DOD) will simulate a “communications interoperability” training exercise across the United States on November 04-06. The announcement released on October 24 has not been widely distributed to the media, because the drill is simulating a total grid collapse and could spark public fear.

    Explained by Army MARS Program Manager Paul English,

    “This exercise will begin with a national massive coronal mass ejection event which will impact the national power grid as well as all forms of traditional communication, including landline telephone, cellphone, satellite, and Internet connectivity,”

    In July, we warned about the US government quietly preparing for a massive coronal mass ejection with the passage of an Executive Order – “Coordinating Efforts to Prepare the Nation for Space Weather Events”.

    Here is snippet of section 1 of the executive order:

    Space weather events, in the form of solar flares, solar energetic particles, and geomagnetic disturbances, occur regularly, some with measurable effects on critical infrastructure systems and technologies, such as the Global Positioning System (GPS), satellite operations and communication, aviation, and the electrical power grid. Extreme space weather events — those that could significantly degrade critical infrastructure — could disable large portions of the electrical power grid, resulting in cascading failures that would affect key services such as water supply, healthcare, and transportation. Space weather has the potential to simultaneously affect and disrupt health and safety across entire continents. Successfully preparing for space weather events is an all-of-nation endeavor that requires partnerships across governments, emergency managers, academia, the media, the insurance industry, non-profits, and the private sector.

    Back in April 2017, we wrote an article titled ‘Yesterday’s Broad Power Outage Likely Caused By Geomagnetic Storm‘. While everyone thought terrorism was to blame, we correctly pointed out that large power failures in major US cities was due to an intense geomagnetic storm registering 8-10 on K-Planetary Index.

    Earthsky.org provides an easy understanding of what is a coronal mass ejection…

    A CME can launch a billion tons of plasma from the sun’s surface into space, at speeds of over a million miles per hour. Every so often, the sun burps.  But, unlike myself, when the sun burps, it does so with the power of 20 million nuclear bombs.  These hiccups are known as coronal mass ejections (CMEs)—powerful eruptions near the surface of the sun driven by kinks in the solar magnetic field.  The resulting shocks ripple through the solar system and can interrupt satellites and power grids on Earth.

    Back to the exercise on November 04-06,  the US Department of Defense headquarters entity will work with the US Army and US Air-Force MARS organizations and the Amateur Radio community to request status reports for 3,143 US counties. During the exercise, communication frequencies will use HF NVIS, VHF, UHF, and non-internet linked Amateur Radio repeaters.

    In addition, Army MARS Program Manager Paul English said,

    We want to continue building on the outstanding cooperative working relationship with the ARRL and the Amateur Radio community,” English said. “We want to expand the use of the 60-meter interop channels between the military and amateur community for emergency communications, and we hope the Amateur Radio community will give us some good feedback on the use of both the 5-MHz interop and the new 13-MHz broadcast channels as a means of information dissemination during a very bad day scenario.

    Full Report from The National Association for Amateur Radio (ARRL):

    Bizarrely enough, this was first reported by Rob Dew of InfoWarsthe US Department of Defense (DOD) training exercise will occur on ANTIFA’s day of rage across the United States.

    On refusefascism.org, a post titled: November 4 It Begins: The Trump/Pence Regime Must Go! has more than 33,000 shares on Facebook…. The post explains what the group’s intentions are during the day of rage.

    The bottom line: The United States government is quietly preparing for a major space-weather event to paralyze communication systems and energy grids across the entire country. As a citizen, you’re not allowed to know this knowledge and frankly you will not be prepared—only the government will be. The writing is on the wall of what is coming through an executive order and DOD drills.

    No wonder public trust with government is at historic lows, because you’re not allowed to know the truth.

    Simultaneously, the wealthiest families who own mega corporations in the United States are plowing millions into their proxy armies called community organizing groups. Let’s just hope, a coronal mass ejection doesn’t occur when these severely misguided folks are protesting.

    Here is the curve ball: Is the United States really preparing for a North Korean EMP attack?

        Funny thing – Nazi stands for National SOCIALIST Workers’ Party (NSDAP) which adopted explicitly socialist planks at their first convention, Munich Feb. 1920, Dinsh D’Souza states their funder, Geo. Soros, was a collaborator with the Nazis in WWII (the fascist left Snopes will deny this, of course, but who believes these CNN wannabes anymore?), anymore, and in fact these H8TE-filled leftists use the EXACT same tactics as Hitler’s brownshirts.

        But I will grant you that they are more communist than their cousins the Nazis (both socialists).

        I believe strongly in non-violence. But that does not mean one cannot defend oneself. And should one of these brownshirts ever attack me, let’s just say I attended university in the US on a football scholarship, and they will quickly find out how that fits against their spineless (only attack in packs), chicken-livered, craven jr high intellects and physiques.

        Always remember folks: H8TE, bullying and violence are bad… unless the fascist left does it: then it is “understandable,” “justifiable,” and even “good.” At least, that is the word from the fascist/Bolshevik leftist hypocrites

        • Torok

          Oh my..Ok you seem a little confused.

          The current Antifa are exactly like the Antifaschistische Aktion in Germany. This was a communist party that carried out assassinations and attacks on Hitler supporters and the main parliament building.

          The “brown shirts” were created as protection after these attacks.

          Hitler’s NSDAP was created to directly OPPOSE communism. (Germans were very aware of the tens of millions who had died from Jewish bolsheviks/communism in Russia)

          The actions taken from there were kicking out all communist supports and the Rothschild banks.

          I recommend taking everything Dinish says with a heaping spoonful of salt. He has ulterior motives…

        From today’s Illinois State Rifle Assoc:

        E ABOUT YOUR GUNS, YOU’LL BOYCOTT THE NFL AND ITS SPONSORS
        If you’re not boycotting the NFL and its sponsors already, you really should be – especially in light of the league’s latest assault on our Constitution and our liberty. First, the NFL provides tacit approval of its players’ belittlement and desecration of our flag and our national anthem. Now, the NFL has announced it has paid its first $500,000 installment to gun control groups to fund a program designed to take your guns away from you.

        Many of us remember the days when the NFL provided wholesome Sunday afternoon entertainment. Players were humble heroes who inspired children and adults alike to give it their all – whether it be on the playing field, in the classroom, or on the job. In contrast, the ranks of players in today’s NFL are a loathsome collection of sociopaths to include animal abusers, sex-perverts, wife beaters, rape artists, drunks and drug addicts. Greed and self-indulgence have plunged the NFL into a cesspool of debauchery.

        Now the NFL wants to drag you and your guns down into that same cesspool.

        The NFL is clearly an enemy of our national anthem, an enemy of our flag, and has now committed itself as an enemy of your gun rights. The best way to fight back against the anti-American, anti-liberty stance of the NFL is to shut the league out of your life. Don’t watch their games, don’t buy their licensed retail items, and boycott the league’s sponsors. Stay true to your American ideals and hold tight to your self-respect. Boycott the NFL.

        To help save your guns, please do the following:

        a. Pass this alert on to all your gun owning friends and family.

        b. Post this alert to any and all social media sites to which you belong.

        c. Join or donate to the Illinois State Rifle Association.

        • Genius

          I don’t watch football. I’m not going to watch it to find out who sponsors it either. Can you put up a list of sponsors? I will gladly boycott every fookin one of them!

            • Red Leader

              This is a very wise exercise by the government. I participated in this same exercise, Commex 16-4, last year around this time. I was able to make contact with MARS Operators in Oregon and Nevada on 60 Meters with a wire antenna 20 feet of the ground.

              All forms of long range communications depend on complicated infrastructure. If we were ever hit with a CME or EMP that infrastructure would be down for months or years.

              HF Radio, requires no complicated infrastructure. All that is needed to communicated is a HF Radio, 12 volts and a wire antenna that you can throw up in a tree. The signal travels long distances by bouncing off the Ionosphere.

              Communicating Ham Radio operators from every county in America, is the only way government officials would know the condition of the country after such an event.

              HF Ham radio works so well that it was banned for civilian use in both WW1 and WW2 so that spys could be tracked down.

              I don’t see anything nefarious in this exercise. Hams are involved in emergency communications missions throughout the year. During the recent hurricane in Puerto Rico, the Red Cross flew in scores of Ham Radio operators to establish reliable communications on outlying areas.

              When all else fails, Ham radio works.

              • Not So Free

                All true; but if your radios are fried they won’t be much use. I “assume” you have your equipment in a faraday cage for protection.

          Is this the “BIG” distraction that I just mentioned a couple of posts ago?

          If it turns out to really be something I guess that would take the focus off of Hitlerly and the DNC

          I wouldn’t put it past our own government to be complicit on hitting us with an EMP. Little Rocket Man will get the blame of course.

          Actually I don’t think “they” are done raping us just yet. So most likely it will be business as usual.

            North Korea may be building biological weapons – 10/23/17
            According to the Belfer Center, North Korea “is producing the biological weapons in facilities disguised as agricultural research labs.”

            “North Korea has 13 types of biological agents that it can weaponize within 10 days, according to the report, which cites a 2015 South Korean Defense Ministry parliamentary audit.

            Anthrax and smallpox are the likely agents it would deploy “in bioterrorism or in an all-out war,” according to the report.

            Others pathogens include the plague, cholera and botulism.”

              Hmmm. It’s been awhile since people have been lined up around the block for flu shots. And the panic that ensued when the shots ran out due to a shortage. Not surprisingly, an expert has just come out and said this flu season could get really, really ugly.

      4. Hides and Watches

        The world will be better off without so many snowflakes. After a couple of months only ones left will be the prepared ones, the smart ones, the mean ones, and the adaptable ones. Then it’s going to be dangerous.

      5. Stormy

        Hmm … Maybe the anarcghist’s cell phones will just happen to stop working. Very funny.

        All the “weapon” I need is my brain. No guns required.

        Ha!

      6. Stuart

        “The United States government is quietly preparing for a major space-weather event to paralyze communication systems and energy grids across the entire country.”

        – if not attempting to prepare, then what should they be doing?

        “As a citizen, you’re not allowed to know this knowledge”

        – This is simply not true.

        “…and frankly you will not be prepared—only the government will be.”

        – Again, not true. Speaking personally, I try very hard to be prepared as do most of the folks who visit this site.

        Unfortunately,SHTFplan is following it’s sister site Daily Sheeple down the National Inquirer road. More and more mindless drivel replacing thoughtful preparedness dialog. Pity.

      7. Yohan Smythe III

        Well here is another opportunity for something to turn into an actual event as the drill is happening. – blame it on the little fat boy.

        Maybe a stupid question. Will Red dot and Tritium reflex sights survive a EMP Without being protected by a cage.

        • anonymous in Michigan

          Red dot will be affected because it is an electronic device. Tritium is a radio active gas tube with no electronic controller so it will be ok.

        • Marcus

          trit sights will, they work off of tritium illumination, not a circuit. Red dots, probably not.
          Iron sights, always 🙂

          • Anticommie

            Don’t know if it will affect tiny circuits. From what I understand it will generate an electric field in metal. So the more wire it has the more prone to an EMP it will be.

            • Marcus

              Its the strength of the current generated thats the issue. Plug a typical 110 household appliance into a 220 outlet and see the same effect, on a much larger scale 🙂

              Introducing more current than a circuit can handle will cook it like a blown fuse.

        • Red Leader

          Dr. Arthur Bradley sells a EMP proof Cloth that you can wrap around your red dot sight while mounted on your rifle. The cloth has stainless steel fibers in it.

        Looks like a communications exercise, to see if everyone can talk to one another. Protocol wise. Not really a big deal.

        • Marcus

          its not, honestly. The HAM community does similar exercises on a regular basis, work with DoD and emergency services to improve services, etc. The drill isnt even original, its one that generally is performed yearly the last few years.
          Preparedness is a good thing. The article paints it like its some big secret, its been public knowledge for weeks. no reason to put it out in the media because most of the population does not care and wouldnt understand if they did. You know how sheep are.

          • babycatcher

            We are doing several preparedness exercises. One was done here locally a week ago.

        I am good on all but one. Red dot on my mini 30 does not co witness to my Irons. I will change it to tritium.

      11. watching and waiting

        For years, the U.S. Government has been quietly preparing for an event.

        Not long ago, people got excited over casket liners in Alabama, Georgia. I read that in the 1990’s and during Bush’s administration they collected #10 cans and it escapes me what the contents were, I want to say freeze dried food/dehydrated, but also GP Tents Large,ex-large, Cots and such and at that time, it was speculated that The Sun was going cold, quite, a solar minimum in which such times, the worst earthquakes occurred also.

        I think we are following a script, like in a play.

        Also, about that time John Casey who worked for Nasa,reported that The President was briefed regarding future activity from The Sun that would cause great Calamity on the earth.

        Of course the Government knows more than they want us to know.

        The fear factor? Really? Many people have already experienced the fear factor since August 21. Those who have lost everything in floods, storms and wildfires.

      18. WIprepped

        We won’t be getting advance warning before it happens. Sucks if you’re a city dweller. Everyone caught during their time away, get home safe. Otherwise hunker down, let the sheeple battle it out, come out when it’s safe.

      19. Yohan Smythe III

        Hmmm, so they want everyone to have their radios on at certain times.. and when would be a good time to set off the EMP to do max damage to all electronics and communications? When everyone has their radios on?

        No thanks. Since I only have 1 radio, it’ll remain safely in the cage.

      20. tahini

        During part of the year I live in (liberal) Olympia Wa. There have been several often violent protests and snowflake acting out sessions, around the capitol building and Evergreen State College. In spite of all the publicity, the only problems are concentrated in these area. The overwhelming rest of the community is quiet and uneventful. I would say to avoid urban areas and colleges on these so called protest days.

      21. Brian

        dWhy bother with drills when the real thing is going on in Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands? The more you see of that crisis, the more likely you are to buy solar power systems and gas generatora.

      22. Jim in Va.

        Be interesting to see how the snowflakes react to such an event.

      23. Brian

        Remember how people reacted to Orson Welle’s broadcast of H.G.Wells “War of the World’s”. Most Americans are so badly informed that panic would set in. To lose power for a long time and not be able to find out what is happening would start all kinds of rumors. People might do the unthinkable and actually talk to their neighbors to find out.
