Hello, We are located near Williamsburg, Virginia. We are hoping to find an established prepper group. My parents are members of the Frontiersmen, but there are no groups in Virginia.

We vet each potential member before accepting. Not looking for freeloaders or dead weight. We are planning for medium and long term survival. We meet and do a show and tell. Everything from stocking up, packet (ham) radio, butchering chickens, reloading ammo, etc.

We can set up a sked. All in our group are studying to get their Tech ticket and want to communicate that way. I also have a packet BBS on 145.05 that will be serving the whole area soon. Right now it's at my house and I'm running tests on it before putting it up.

Tango17 checking in. I'm southwest of Woodstock and interested in your Winchester group. Not so much to join, but to have contacts for info relay. We may be able to reach each other on simplex but if not I have another contact a few miles north of me. For some reason 42 breaks squelch every few seconds at my location sometimes whereas 52 doesn't, so I monitor 52 more than the other. I have general so can reach out if needed.

I sometimes check in on 146.82 and 145.39 PL 146.2. See if you can hit either.

Yeah. Rixy is pronounced RickC which is my name. Puzzles. Most TNC's will work. Instructions and hookups can be seen here: http://www.neatcircuits.com/packet The 145.05 BBS should be up sometime this summer. If anyone wants to learn more about Packet and BBS's visit my site: http://www.neatcircuits.com/bbs

146.82 is easy for me here, Tango17 and I checked it out just yesterday. You are the person that clued me in on .82. Thanks for the info.

Hello! I'm relatively new to prepping. I'm starting to build food storage for my family as well as basic weapons and some ammunition. I am also building kits for each vehicle just in case I have to walk out of downtown DC.

I would like to meet a group near Arlington in order to exchange information and ideas. I also welcome any tips and hints from more established preppers. Thanks and good luck to all of you!

Welcome to the forum Joel. We are in Gloucester county, three hours south of you. There a number of preppers in your area.

Welcome. We're setting up VA wide and NOVA specific HF and UHF nets for those so inclined. Check the AMRRON net schedule for details. If you're not a HAM (yet), we're supporting the Channel 3 project with MURS. Unfortunately channel 3 is very simplex so if you're not near Eastern Prince William County, you can't hear us.

We're on HF every Monday night at 8pm.

Any down around Lynchburg area? Recently returned from Ga/Fl after 30 or so years in Culpeper area. Would love to find a group around this area.
