Op Overview: This is a unique Land Ops exercise that involves two separate teams in two separate regions with two separate net control stations performing a synchronized nav-comm op. The two basecamps will be established approximately 60-80 miles apart. Each participant will be preassigned to a team and location prior to the op.
BASE #1 -The Broadwell Base – Basecamp will be setup near Broadwell dry lake or perhaps slightly north of Broadwell. Either way the base will be known as the “Broadwell Base” and the group will be Team Bravo. Tentative Primary Base Camp location at 34.856874,-116.214457.
BASE #2 -The Cuddeback Base – a Basecamp will be setup near Cuddeback dry lake at the following coordinates 35.212386,-117.401828. Waypoint coordinates to the Base Camp will be sent prior to the trip. The base will be known as the “Cuddeback Base” and the group will be Team Charley.
