Meet and Greet Until 11:00
 
 Michael Downing: Welcome and Introduction 11:00 to 11:15

****************************


Tom Green of the Alamance County Rangers 11:15 to 12:15:  

Hands on training session on compass and map work using the USGS map 7.5 minute quad map Wayah Bald referenced in the serialized story "The Patrol" by Dan Morgan. The objective is to learn how to locate UTM positions on a map using appropriate map-tools and navigating between them by compass bearings.  Along with this will be quick demo on pace counter beads with a measured 100 meter section to check your pace count.  This is the bare minimum basics to learn before moving on to Land Navigation Training.

*FM transmitter to broadcast podcasts from Forward Observer and Radio Free Redoubt  to demonstrate low power FM as clandestine radio communication. Pirate box wireless router serving up pictures, documents and videos. Handheld scanner to set up as demo and  100 meter walking line for pace counting down driveway.

Scanners

 http://rtlsdrblog.rtlsdrblog.netdna-cdn.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/05/FastScannerSDRSharpPlugin1.png

Tom Green of the Alamance County Rangers  and NC Scout 1:15 to 2:15
 
How to use an SDR to quickly find locally active frequencies of interest, put into a scanner, and collect/monitor those signal activities.  Will have a large screen TV to view the SDR signals and a PowerPoint presentation on collecting and reporting monitoring results for later analysis.  All presented in the format of an imaginary mission where you have a reason to be looking for and reporting signal activity. 

Once the attendees have had a chance to hands on with land nav and scanning, they'll get a live fire of transmitting directionally, from an OP to another OP we will set up, and a QRP NVIS demo. This should tie everything together, and the attendees will get a chance to do the stuff they've been reading about.
