Excerpt from “Secret Forces”, by F.O. Miksche

secret forces

Juan Martín Díez sends, via this classic:

“…But Napoleon’s famous maxim, ‘the whole secret of the art of war lies in making oneself the master of the communications’, is truer than ever and the lines of supply, on which [vehicles] rely for fuel, constitute the Achilles’ heel of all [vehicular] forces. To harass and army’s lines of communication is to paralyse its moral strength; to destroy its means of intercommunication-by which orders and reports pass-is to paralyse the sensory connection between brain and body. The destruction of radio stations and telegraph installations makes an [army] deaf and dumb…”

Attack the PD motorpools, repeater sites, and follow with night letters to garages, gas stations, and radio repair businesses.

Don’t fight the MRAPs.

Some Perspective

On this thread from Tom Baugh:

Oathkeepers is learning from its past experiences and is becoming more effective at each engagement in its role as a FreeFor PR arm.

Don’t like the word PR? Well, the simple fact is that OK is a political, mindspace outfit. It is NOT a militia, nor does it have a military role, and if it, as an umbrella organization, tried to do both it would succeed at neither. The Ferguson (http://starvingthemonkeys.com/articles/OathkeepersDefendFerguson.html) defense is a great example of how they adjusted from previous mistakes to make that a PR win by combining the best mix of national and local assets. And, if they can do a good enough job with their PR role, the military side of things will keep gathering dust in the closet.

Fine by me, even if it means I don’t get to participate in their thing.

As a note for the newbies, Stewart Rhodes of the Oathkeepers wouldn’t piss on me to put me out if I was on fire, nor would he, because of my associations and stated objectives, want me within a hundred miles of any of their activities, and has, without reservation and in public, distanced himself from yours truly, individually.

So what?

In the past, I have had specific, objective criticisms, which they have now addressed, not as any deliberate reaction to my input, but as a refinement of their place in the FreeFor complex. What is more important to me is that Oathkeepers, after a few bumpy years, is now doing important work along its axis, especially among, and with, the rank-and-file membership, and deserves my support, and the support of anyone I can rally to their cause, completely independent of whether they might rally to mine.

NPFD 2015/1 Hot Wash

Detailed AARs to follow, but a few key points:

– Many thanks to all who participated

– Special thanks to those who tried to get through on HF; my Buckmaster 7-bander antenna was just too damned low; that will not be repeated

– The OpPlan had too many freqs for the available staff; another key lesson

– Alt comms made the day

– Our 2m net control did yeoman’s work on making that mode the most successful of the day

– Thanks again to all

NPFD 2015/1 FINAL OPORD 2310EDT/0310Z

screen-shot-2015-03-24-at-8-16-51-am

EXECUTION: 1300Z/0900EDT 19 APRIL 2015 – 0100Z/2100EDT 20 APRIL 2015

Primary: HF radio as follows; freqs in order of use by net control; net control freq to be posted on WRSA post of the day and WRSA twitter feed

20M: 14.250 MHz; if freq in use or unusable from QRM, move up 10 Khz until contact established

40M: 7.185 MHz; same procedures

17M: 18.120 MHz; same procedures

15M: 21.300 MHz; same procedures

AT THIS TIME, IONOSPHERIC CONDITIONS ARE VERY UNSETTLED; OTHER FREQS WILL BE USED AND POSTED AS NECESSARY

Alternate 1: The WRSA Twitter feed will be monitored; if HF or other modes are not available, reporting (including imagery) can occur via Twitter @wrsablog. ALL NPFD PARTICIPANTS SHOULD ESTABLISH EXERCISE-SPECIFIC TWITTER ACCOUNTS ASAP AT https://twitter.com

Alternate 2: PSK31 data at 14.070 MHz; secondary at 7.080 MHz

Alternate 3: Echolink/2m radio; Cleveland, GA node K4GAR.

Contingent: If neither the Primary nor Alternate comm modes is available to a NPFD participant, there will be a “National Patriot Field Day 2015/1″ post at WRSA with an open thread; moderation will be enhanced temporarily as part of the exercise so as to minimize comment posting delays. Note that the Contingent comm mode should only be used if other means are not available; “double reporting” is to be avoided.

Emergency: A single-use “burner phone” number will be available only for NPFD participants who cannot report by any other means; voice or text only if all other modes are not available: +1 718-730-2856.

Schedule: At the top of each hour, NPFD net control will read the following mission header:

THIS IS THE NATIONAL PATRIOT FIELD DAY NET. UNLESS SPECIFICALLY DESIGNATED AS “NOT A DRILL”, ALL TRAFFIC ON THIS FREQUENCY IS PART OF A NATIONAL FIELD AND COMMUNICATIONS TRAINING EXERCISE DESIGNED TO PROVIDE HUMANITARIAN AND SECURITY ASSISTANCE IN THE EVENT OF A NATIONAL DISASTER OR OTHER CATASTROPHIC IMPAIRMENT OF EXISTING RESOURCES. ONCE AGAIN, UNLESS SPECFICALLY DESIGNATED OTHERWISE, ALL TRAFFIC ON THIS FREQUENCY IS PART OF THE NPFD 2015/1 COMMUNICATIONS AND FIELD TRAINING EXERCISE, WHICH IS SCHEDULED FOR TODAY, 19 APRIL 2015, FROM 1300Z THROUGH 0100Z ON 20 APRIL.

Regional traffic will be scheduled at 20 minutes past the hour, and local status traffic at 40 minutes past each hour. Each traffic type will be concluded to the extent possible within ten minutes after start time; the remaining time will be used as needed. Note that local operational communications will be occurring as needed in each AO; the “40 after” traffic slot will be for those local teams who wish to DX to the regional or NPFD coordinating hubs at their discretion.

All messages to net control will follow this framework:

CALL SIGN – MESSAGE BODY – CONFIRMATION READBACK BY NET CONTROL – CALL SIGN

ALL OTHER ELEMENTS OF NPFD OPORD REMAIN IN EFFECT

NET CONTROL OUT UNTIL 0845EST/1245Z
