Topics to be discussed will include:
- Considerations for Grid-Down/Resilient Communications
- Equipment Selection
- Basic Off-Grid Electric Power
- Basic Test Equipment
- VHF/UHF Communications Monitoring
- Equipment Selection
- Low-Level Voice Intercept Operations
- Basic Radio Direction Finding
Pack a lunch, water, and toilet paper. The facilities in Wyoming are primitive, and far from civilization. There are places in Dubois and Riverton where you can get a sandwich, or something for the BBQ grill. Speaking of which….
There will be a BBQ grill available for those of you who want to cook something hot.
Dinner will be provided Saturday Night, as long as you like steak and potatoes off the grill. BYOB if you want something with a little kick to it.
There will be a swap meet in the rendezvous style during the workshop. Bring your trade goods.
Try to take a few extra days to do the tourist thing. Both Cody (Buffalo Bill Museum) and Jackson Hole are right down the road (by Wyoming standards).
Of course this will all be around forever, so you guys just take your time getting to it….Isn’t March Madness or some such pablum coming up? SQUIRREL!!!!!!
