Operation Grid Down Commo Class was a success! We had a great weekend in the Connecticut wilderness. Day one: classroom instruction. We discussed QRP operations, scanning, intel collection and analysis, equipment options, non license radio services, field expedient antennas and related gear and many other “topics” of interest. Day two: Field Training Exercise. Day two was an outdoor FTX in the Connecticut wilderness.
We discussed and constructed field expedient antennas. The sudents learned techniques that can be applied to real world conditions and were able to get “hands on” with the material. Students set up their equipment, and were able to see how field conditions can be challenging for the low power, covert operator. By Sundays end, the field operatives had completed their mission and everyone had a great time!
It was a great class with great people. Thank you to all who attended and all who labored to make this class possible. If you missed this one, get to class in September! Watch the blog for further details soon.
