RE: Re: sleeper

Depending on my son's work schedule, count us as probable. I don't suppose there's any kind of motels in resonable driving distance around there? I really hate camping, especially if it rains.

RE: Re: sleeper

A NCS (net control station) will be set up at the TOC (Tactical Command Center, that is, the main base camp area). There are three reasons for it: safety, security, and convenience.

We will be operating with alot of dangerous and expensive equipment, so if a radio is handy, go with the annex and it'll be easy to call for help if something goes wrong.

I realize there's no OPORD for this (yet?), but I've put together a commo annex. It's similar to what we've been using in the TXMF but simpler to read. Ok, so there's no one going to force anyone to follow it, but it's there.

Note the annex pertains only to comunications traffic with the net control station.
Otherwise, talk to anyone you wish! Use any band! No one wants to restrict anything, only to enable a service.

The NCS will have tall antennas and will reach out there, so it will extend your range if you must reach someone at the base and so therefore it's also for your convenience. Of course I won't be sitting inside the shelter all day, so I will rig up an external loudspeaker.. Those calling will need to give the base RTO some time to answer.

As usual with army stuff. 2 pages of pocedures and one page of meat.

So just make it through to page 3, and there's a table of what we plan to accommodate. I believe it is comprehensive enough so that just about any walkie talkie or pack radio will fit in.

It's also simple enough so that if you are not technical, you can just find your kind of radio in the table, and see what channels are suggested. I say 'suggested' at this time, because this is presented for review. If there is something you don't like or you have a radio that needs accommodated but is not shown, sound off!

Jason, when you make it out the park next, can you check for a loading dock? Or at least an embankment I could unload/load vehicles from a M127 flatbed trailer. Thanks.

I plan to go as long as something doesn't come up. Sadly I don't have a MV of any kind yet. But I'd be willing to show up early and help with any setup that there might be.

I am coming. I just finished putting the air-o-matic cylinder back on the truck after doing some other work on the truck. Very nice to have that back on the truck.

SGT Slaughter is coming with me.
