Code Book/TrailTravel signs
« on: September 30, 2013, 08:38:30 AM »
As part of getting ourselves organised as a group, we should develop some sort of standardised encoded form of radio comms forSHTF type scenario's. Not to confuse any government agencies( they don't need much more) but to be able to communicate in private during emergencies/crises. Another item of interest, may be that of trail signs and the use thereof. A good starting point would be in the boy scouts manual, as I posted in another thread. The signs could be personalised, denote where you are from, where you are going, and if you are in distress...Just thought that if we are ever to become a better organized group of like minded people, that this may become a huge step in that direction. We could start at a provincial level at our meetings, then network within the other provinces, then standardize the comms protocol. Just another crazy thought to rattle around, if anyone has a background in sigs you would be a great asset...

Nobsers,  ;)

Absolutely.

Here is a link that we Canadians can use to help or get help in an emergency.. basically a emergency contact list (ANTS)

http://www.americansnetworkingtosurvive.org/   and... http://www.americanpreppersnetwork.net/viewforum.php?f=618

a standardized encoded form for radio comms as you mention would go hand in hand!
How would people like to do this?
Use a small book that would have suitable words in it to use, perhaps that everyone could get?

Of course, for one's one group you would have your own standard but having a province etc wide standard may come in handy :)
Its  a great opportunity to be able to be a part of something.
Give respect, get respect.

Above all, adapt

A code book would probably be a daily code that rotates at the end of each week, example: codes written for each day sun-sat would then rotate on the following sunday to monday's original code... and so on . Confused yet? Travel signs for identification could be a triangle with A for alberta....and your initials within. I'm just throwing these things out there for consideration. The triangle could be pointed in your direction of travel and a broken or incomplete side could denote need meds,food, being pursued... and so forth the simpler the better.

Let's get at 'er

With the stickers I just got from GG, I intend to laminate them, for use as trail markers and ORV sites. Just write on them in delible ink marker, put it in a ziploc bag, and place it as you see fit. Anyone else doing this sort of thing? Will now move this post to the confidential category under Trail signs.

Looking forward to any input, especially from like minded Alberta/BC prepper types
