The Midwest Prepper Report “NET” is a twice a week radio event on HF radio for preppers in the midwest to share information relative to their particular location. You can learn about the status of other areas and have a reliable method of communication in the event all other means of communication are down.
Unlicensed listeners are welcome and we encourage non-Ham participation.
So what is a NET?
A Net is a meeting on the air between Ham operators where one operator is the lead or NET Control Station (NCS for short) and he/she will call out for “check ins” where other stations call back with their callsign, county and name. After everyone is “checked in” the NCS station will call each of the checked in stations one at a time and ask for their “Traffic” (the information they want to share or ask for ).
A listener can learn a lot about the status of surrounding areas and potential good deals at certain stores or possibly what areas to avoid.
On the Midwest Prepper Report NET last night it was brought to my attention that I have not shared any information about our GMRS Repeater in Mayville Michigan. We are running an Icom FR4000 Commercial UHF 50 watt Repeater with a 6db antenna on a 60ft tower.
The Mayville repeater reach is roughly a maximum of 25 miles when using a mobile or base radio. A handheld will generally max out at about 10 miles unless you can find some substantially high ground to transmit from, then the handheld range will go up considerably.
Our repeater does announce itself every 15 minutes. You may hear a female voice or you may hear morse code but it does announce itself every 15 minutes.
Our Repeater settings are : Receive : 462.625 and transmit 467.625 with a Tone of 141.3 (This will be channel 18 or channel 26 depending on how your GMRS radio is setup)
We hope to hear you using the repeater soon!
This is a simple python script, you change the last two lines for the url you want it to spider and the folder you want the files deposited in. The Spider will go 3 levels deep and it will find txt, zip, pdf and html files.If there is a link menu on the page, it will follow the links down.
This script is simple but effective for scouring Prepper files and loading them on your computer or memory stick.
NOTE : This tool must be run from the python3 command line
Change the url to match the url you want it to scour.
Change the folder path you want it to save the files to
type : python3 spidertrap.py
It will start displaying the file count in the console window.
Here is the link to the spidertrap.zip file
