Sparks31 has been on the shsow previously to speak about the skills and techniques needed to initiate and maintain communications with the outside world, using your own equipment, FRS, CB and Ham Radios, during a "grid down" situation. He returns tonight to continue that discussion and to talk about what he will be teaching at the upcoming BattleRoadUSA Grid Down Communications course December 6th/7th, 2014 at our facilities in Central Texas.
Even if you are not planning on attending the course, this is information you will want to have in your work bag in the event all other means of communications are unavailable to you. In a natural or man made disaster, or any type of "grid down" situation, having the ability to determine what is going on the the rest of the world, outside your field of view, is an extremely important ability.
We will also discuss ways to use your communications systems as the basis for your intelligence program. Being able to listen to service providers, EMS, Sheriff's Dept, Police, etc., in your area can help you determine what is happening in your area of operations. Knowing that there is something going down in your area, or close to you can be very important in your home defense or community defense plan.
Be sure and call in with your questions at 347-308-8790 and add your voice to the discussion.
Hope to see you there!
