Episode # 44.  LET'S TALK OPSEC

Operational Security or  Operations Security is 
really just risk management

General Opsec
Particularly important for survival communities and mutual assistance groups.

OPSEC should be exercised with family bug out location & activities as well as in daily life.
General opsec includes making your house less attractive to thugs, thieves, and looters using outside lighting, video cameras, cutting back bushes cut and reducing hiding places aroung the house.
 We talk a bit about situational awareness and being the gray man, or woman, and blending in.


Mission Opsec
(the fun, spy craft type stuff)

Radio Communications:
Remember, everything can be monitored.

For the purposes of this discussion we'll use the Baofeng radio.

They are dual band, dual watch radios can operate "split" which helps with the security of communications.

Codes can be developed for use after SHTF, or even in exercises or daily use, and we discuss examples of codes.

We discuss keeping your transmissions short, triangulation, and rotating your transmitting locations.

Just for fun we discuss verbal runners, dead drops, and signals.
