TOWR Basic Intro to Radio and Comms Class, 5 November

The Order of The White Rose (TOWR) will be running a 1 Day Basic Introduction to Radio and Communication Class November 5th 2016 in the Greater Seattle Area.

Class will be 6 to 8 hours, cost is $50.00, location will be provided upon registration. Email us at towr@hushmail.com to register!

This class will touch on the following areas:
– Radio and Communications Basic Theory and Terminology
– Radio Capabilities and Operating Techniques
– Introduction to the Equipment, Radios, Antenna’s, Power, Connections and Cable
– What type of Radio should you buy, Walmart Walki-Talkie, Baofeng, UHF/VHF vs HF
– How Repeaters work and how radio waves act
– Use of Your Radio
– How to Program Your Radio
– Introduction to Scanners and their uses in your area
– Local and National Education Resources
– Introduction to SDR (Software Defined Radio) and Ham-Net

Our goals for this class are:
1st – To give attendees a basic information foundation in the area of Communications. However this is class is not intended to be provide attendees enough information to pass their Ham Radio License Test, its a start but not intended to do that.
2nd – To provide enough practical information that attendees can evaluate the use of Radios in establishing their own Communication networks for families, neighborhood, Group and nearby Groups.
3rd – The Order of the White Rose will be sponsoring Sparks31’s, 2 day Grid-Down/Resilient Communications Class in the Seattle area, June 2017. Our intent is to provide attendees enough information to get the maximum value from what Sparks31 teaches in that class. Without this basic foundation sometimes getting that value is like trying to get a drink of water out of a hydrant.

Class Updates: Sparks31 is Coming Back!

We are pleased to announce that we will be offering several classes in the next few months, both in-person and through webinar. We will have solid dates for some of these in the next week or so, but here’s what we have planned for the next few months:

TOWR Basic Privacy and Anonymity (Two parts, September 20 and 28) – This is a webinar course that will put you in a very good position to take CSG’s Groundrod Primer course, or simply to just start researching and learning on your own. There are 4 spots left in the September 20 and 28 class.

Statement Analysis 101 (Two parts, October 12 and 19)  – This is a webinar course specifically designed to familiarize you with a few of the concept of deception detection through analytical interviewing and linguistic analysis. It will show you how SA works, why it’s been cited in court cases all the way up to SCOTUS, and why you should be using it, as well as get you started using some of the concepts.

TOWR Introduction to Communications for Patriots (November 5) – If you haven’t been able to attend a Sparks31 class or if you need some solid training before you go, this is the class you want. It’s not a standard “teach the test” course; this is an in-person, practical use class focusing on getting you up to speed on what you need and how to use it. Meant for the beginner or new licensee, Intro to Comms will get you ready to attend a more advanced course like the Sparks31 Grid Down Comms class.

Sparks31 Grid Down Communications (Spring 2017) – If you missed this one last year, you should really get in on it now. Sparks31 has agreed to bring his fantastic class to us one more time. This is an in-person class with hands-on training as well as classroom time. Keep in mind that he has updated his curriculum, so if you took it last year you may want to consider taking it again.

Advanced Privacy and Anonymity (Spring 2017) – If you’ve been through the Basic class, this is the next step.

We have several other classes in the works as well, and we’ll be releasing those details as soon as we have them nailed down. Stay tuned!

Description

We held a comms class last November and it was a huge success. There are also ham license classes everywhere. But what about those who want to understand some of how it all works and aren’t ready to take the test? Or those who already have their license and are thinking “now what?”  What about those who want specific, focused training on small group communications and the practical how-to of it all? That’s what our Small Group Communications class is for.

Our class, taught by TOWR members and radio operators Steve and Mike, will focus on the following:

  • Basic Radio Theory
  • Getting Started: what to buy and why
  • How to Set Up a Listening Post and Start Collecting
  • Setting Up Comms for Your Group

You don’t need a license to take this class; although this is NOT a Tech or General ham radio class, we’ll cover some of the same topics. If you have a license already, great–you’ll still learn.  This class is focused on the practical familiarization and use of radios, and will get you more comfortable taking the exam, buying new gear, or using the gear you already have.

The class fee is $50, and you can reserve a spot or get payment information by contacting us here. You’ll want to bring your comms gear, if you have any.

Date: 5 November 2016
Time: 1015-1645
Location: TBD

Reserve your spot now!

Description

This class is geared to those who either need to learn the basics of privacy and anonymity, or who would like a refresher. Everyone has the right to conduct their affairs in private, and this Basic Privacy and Anonymity webinar class will show you how to start doing that. Whether you’re a total beginner who’s never heard of any of this, or someone who’s dabbled but doesn’t feel comfortable with it, or even if you do it all the time and just want to double check and make sure you’re doing it right, this class is for you.

This is Part 2 of a two-session class. In this first session, we’ll cover the following:

  • Secure messaging – which ones are best for privacy?
  • Virtual Private Networks (VPN) – how to connect to the internet anonymously.
  • Bitcoin Basics – how to buy and sell cryptocurrency for anonymous purchases.
  • Best practices for online activities – how to evade digital surveillance and protect your metadata.

(Check out the agenda for Part 1 here.)

Both sessions will have a question and answer period as well. Sessions are limited to 25 people so everyone gets a chance to ask questions.

We recently offered this class in-person as a one-day event, and it was a huge success. We had so many requests from outside the Pacific Northwest for this kind of training that we have broken the class up into two sessions, two hours each, and are offering them as a live webinar. (It’ll also be available later as an archive.)

This is an overview class, meant to introduce you to the concepts of privacy and why they’re so critical to Three Percenters and patriots. It’ll also set you up for more advanced classes we will be giving this fall that deal with more advanced functions and operations. If any of the following statements have ever come out of your mouth….

  • I’m not doing anything illegal.
  • There’s no point in any of this; the government can see you no matter what you do.
  • Go ahead and let them look!
  • If you try to be private you’re just making yourself more of a target.

you need to be in this class. You will have your eyes opened.

You get access to BOTH sessions–a total of four hours of live instruction—for $25. That not only includes both webinar sessions live, but access to them later as well so you can go back over the material.

Session 2 is August 31, from 6:30-8:30PM Pacific time. You can reserve your place and get payment info by contacting us here.

Don’t miss your chance to learn how to protect yourself and your group.
