In a real incident, its possible the public will panic, mob, rush, and otherwise disrupt any known communications effort. officals could confiscate known e-comm teams and equipment for various reasons.
Being undercover, clandestine, and stealth is the best way to survive, pass traffic, and stay connected and informed of whats happening inside and outside the affected area. A stealth comm's center will better avoid chaos.
If you are a prepper, survivalist, this type of exercise will be more like what will really take place and be needed.
This will not be a welcome center, public proclamation type site.
Plenty of fellowship and social time will be enjoyed, by participants.
Operators will use 5 watts with wire antennas, and attempt to contact as many sections as possible using battery power, solar, or wind. No noise producing generators will be used.
