The Radio Telephone Operator (RTO) Course, Put on by Brush Beater Training and Consulting in conjunction with Rifles Only, this course is designed to take civilians from any experience level and enable them to create communications infrastructure where there otherwise would be none.
Using common, off the shelf equipment, such as inexpensive handheld radios, CB, and other equipment common to nearly any corner of the world, we cover coming up with a communications plan and implementation for infrastructure where there otherwise would be none.
We learn the basics of antenna theory and construction, with students building basic antennas in class and then using them in their working environments. Last, we cover how to integrate our communications into a basic tactical plan through hands on exercises for civilians to operate in an uncertain world.
The March 2021 RTO course will be on Coyote Rim Ranch located about 5 miles west of Fort Collins in Colorado.
No lodging or food service at ranch is available for this course. Students can stay in Ft Collins can bring lunch and trail food for the day.
Class starts 0800.
