I am a former Infantry Scout in one of the Army’s best Reconnaissance Units, a former NCO, serving in both Iraq and Afghanistan. I seek to share what I’ve learned to help folks build a skill set that may be needed in the near future. Liberty is at a tipping point, inching further and further to the cliff of tyranny each day. Good men cannot stand idly by.

All of my posts come from my own experience. I’ve learned a lot of lessons, mainly the hard way through my own mistakes and the those of others around me. In addition, everything I post revolves around the Small Unit; like it or not that’s what you are and your survivability and success relies solely upon you and how well you train now.

My sole aim is to provide a solid baseline for the reader to build upon at the individual and Small Unit level. Teamwork is paramount. Hopefully it resonates, and thank you for reading. If you have any questions, feel free to email me at khaos @ unseen (dot) is.

    I have a question…..I am a new ham who just passed the tech in Nov and the general and Am extra this month…the radio club gave me a baofeng uv5r when I passed the tech exam and this is the only radio I have…..now with the general I was going to follow thoughts on a HF radio and have been looking for an 817 (the one that if r2d2 was a radio he would be!
    A club member has a 857d and mfj 939 auto tuner for sale at what appears a good price……my question…..would this work as a good alternative for an 817?


    1. Yes.

      The 857 is a 100W radio that can be turned down to a 5w radio at the minimum. Long story short, it uses more power on 5W than the 817 does at the same power level.

      I own both. They serve different purposes. The 857, internally, is the same radio as the 897. It’s a great set. If you’re torn between the 857 or 817 and are a new guy, you’ll get more immediate satisfaction from the 857.

    Daggum dogs got into some poison ivy, and are getting it all over us.

    Went to the HD and picked up some of this:

    Thought you’d appreciate that.

    I’ll let you know if it’s worth a flip.

    Great blog, I have put together great scout sniper teams and great scout sniper platoons. I have even taught it formally. That being said listen and learn this is some great info. NC SCOUT hit me up if you ever get around to it. I might have a few things for you to share.

  5. Been with you since the beginning. I really enjoy the subjects you write about specifically ham radio. I built my first Moxon antenna do to your article on it -Thanks.

    An out of the box question: Have you thought of hosting a one hour (or so) net one night/day a month?

    I have tried to get one started on my site Unchainedpreppers.com but it is like pulling hens teeth to get folks to participate. The best one we did was to get six folks on frequency. Folks who only had SW receivers didn’t even check in to see if their set-up worked.

    It seems that the average prepper has never though of communication in a SHTF scenario, even if they are only receiving communications let alone transmitting.

    Your thoughts?
