From a reader:

Just read your post on questions to ask a guerilla. One point not listed is that everyone is good at something. Identify what they are good at, and apply them. There are sleeper guys out there with skills a normal person would never think of. So ask the team applicants, what are you good at? In Afg, I was yackin one day with a Marine.

The Jungle Antenna Revisited: Task and Purpose for the Partisan and Prepper

brushbeater

Going back to the early days of the Brushbeater blog, the Jungle Antenna post has been and continues to be one of the more popular posts I’ve done. And for good reason- I wrote it to be used. It’s the antenna every student in the RTO course builds and one of the designs they get hands on with, and it’s the one that they know works from the demonstrations we do with them. But often, as with everything, a context for the task and purpose has to be clarified.

Many preppers who contact me fall into a similar trap. I have an goal and recognize a need. What can I buy that does for me what I want it to do? How do I do this in the most cost-effective way? And finally (but what should be first), how do I obtain the skill to best use the…
