Russ Roberts‘s insight:

An interesting, positive story of how a group of Marines from Camp Lejeune got some "fine tuning" on their radio direction finding skills from members of the Rowan Amateur Radio Society.  The group leader, Sgt Phillip Rice (himself an amateur radio operator) asked members of the amateur radio club to provide practice experience in direction finding that couldn’t taught in the classroom.  So, this past Saturday (31 May 2014)  club members set up a demonstration "fox hunt" using special antennas, navigation devices, and direction finding techniques.  The exercise was a great success in providing basic training in a skill that could save both civilian and military lives.  Aloha de Russ (KH6JRM).
