5 APR 2017 – Sparks-31 Down Grid Communications Update

Hi everyone,

If you haven’t signed up for the June 3-4 Sparks-31 class here in the beautiful Pacific Northwest, you’ve missed early bird pricing.  That’s OK, though – we still have room for some of you for only $250.  Tom recently posted a preview of the class he’s holding in Wyoming here: http://sparks-31.blogspot.com/2017/03/preview-of-wyoming-down-grid.html.

Sparks-31 is the preeminent thought leader in communications in the preparedness-minded community today.  With 30 years of communications and electronics experience and a practical view of the communications requirements community defense organizations may have in times of trouble, Tom is uniquely qualified to instruct this class.

To sign up for the class, contact us at TOWR@hushmail.com.  Payments must be received by 31 May or “at-the-door” pricing of $350 will be assessed.


New Webinar Offering: Countering Infiltration for Individuals and Small Groups

If there is a lesson to be learned in the movement/cause/whatever from the last year, it’s that infiltration is rampant.  Whether we want to admit it or not, the feds have the money, the personnel, and the training to not only infiltrate our groups and actions, but in some instances even pull off operations that run a lot longer and endanger a lot more people.

What is to be done about this? It’s pretty simple: Folks need to learn how to better recognize an infiltration when they see one.

To that end, we’ll be offering a webinar on infiltration, focusing on how it’s done, why it’s effective, and how to guard against it.  It’s not going to give you a list of names, or some kind of magic formula. What it WILL do, is teach you how to think through the process, and recognize the signs. In addition, I’ll show you how to avoid putting yourself into already existing operations — and there are many.

In addition, I’ll talk about some of the current tactics that people are using to find and expose informants and agents, and why they’re ineffective.  We will go over several cases of known informants, and explain how they were able to get in, and why they were able to stay so long.

Our hope is that after this webinar, you’ll be a lot more cognizant of things that don’t fit, and you may find yourself looking at things much differently. In fact, the whole purpose is exactly that — to teach you how to think in a way that will keep you and your groups safe.

We hope to offer this course starting next month; stay tuned for details.

Sparks31 is Coming in June!

If you’re familiar with Sparks31 and his comms work, then you know there is no better communications training out there. His Grid Down Communications class is one of the most sought after courses in the country for patriots and survivalists, and with good reason. It’s a two day class that will challenge you and give you hands on training in communications for SHTF and grid down scenarios. You’ll learn about what radio equipment to buy and how to use it, as well as how to best set up for a grid down situation to use the minimum amount of power necessary. You’ll be looking at how to set up a listening station, how to take notes on the information you’re collecting, and how to set up a rig that can travel — and a LOT more.

In 2017, Sparks is only doing one Grid Down Communications class in the state of Washington all year — and TOWR is sponsoring it.  You will NOT want to miss this class, and signing up early means you’ll save money as well. The class is June 3-4, 2017, and if you sign up now you’ll get a discount of $150 off the full class price. You’ll want to do this, because our last class filled up quickly!

The class will be held in the Seattle area, and those who register will receive venue information and time.

LOCATION: Seattle area
EARLY BIRD: Now until March 31: $200
