Hi Jab,
I think they've done a lot of work in developing the ANTS system, nowever I'm not convinced it is the way to go.  For instance, don't you see an OPSEC issue with the fact that anyone can identify 2 Canadians in the system?  We know where they are from, we can zoom in and see their personal ID corner/area, etc...
There are enough things wrong with the ANTS system that I don't see any way to work within it.  Not that they haven't done good things, its just that we can do better...

Opsec could be an issue but the info they have is only what you put into it. The co ordinates are for a position only... not necessarily YOUR position. It could be blocks away.

Coordinates should be for an RV point that you can observe from a minimum of 7 + different positions using binos and or scopes. When you make contact even with friendlies have an observer watch from a vantage point for 2+ hrs before and 2+hrs after. Quick codes on radios or just a code of radio pulses with mike, no voice from observer. In case of radio tracking and observation from others!

The OPSEC issue is just one of the many negative things about the ANTS system as is currently operating in the USA.  There are other issues as well, but I'm not saying "don't join the A.N.T.S. group".   Look into the group and make your own decision.

I'm saying that with some input and direction from others I can build a system here that is better.   I don't however want to taint others opinions on the A.N.T.S. system before they've even had a chance to review it.  That's why I don't want to go into great detail about it right now.    If you want, let's start a thread in the closed forum and we'll go into greater detail there.

Sounds like a plan. Perhaps we should have and open thread and a private thread as I am sure many have some thoughts on this.

Go for it in the discussion section. Remember it is invite only, so new people need to be put in there.

Welcome, GP!  Nice to see ya here  :)   I officially do NOT have a vehicle for Sunday.  So I'll have to figure out how to get there without one.  Depends on the weather really.  If it was a lovely spring or summer day I'd walk from Exeter Rd.  BUT, spring has decided to be fashionably late this year which will make walking over the 401 unpleasant at the very least.  Perhaps I'll brave it anyway.  Hmmmm.....

Hey, that would work for me.  Maybe in front of the Canadian Tire?  Say 12:45?  Thanks!
