-- hiding in plain (sight@edge. of no-where), December 04, 1999


SHARES Exercise 99-3 was conducted Monday, October 25, 1999. A SHARES Transportable Auxiliary Radio (STAR) unit deployed to Atlanta, GA, to co-locate with an AT&T Network Disaster Recovery Exercise. The exercise was the final exercise scheduled prior to the December 26 SCN Level 2 Change supporting the Y2K rollover

This was definitley not in plain sight, I have never heard of SHARES?

---also be aware that georgia power has approximately 2 dozen completely mobile com units with towers to supplement their already existing LINC fm/cell system. I imagine they will be the last quasi official radio network to go down. HAMS will be last, once the emergency EO restrictions and confiscations begin

steenking papers come home to roost eventualy, they did it in ww2 zog

who needs to use radio frequencies to communicate when you can use OTHER means of wireless, long-distance communication? some kinds of accoustic frequencies can travel far in solid rock, miles below the earth's surface...that could be a good way to evade those pesky EMPs and hacker attacks...the speed of sound is faster in a solid medium than in air, you know...
