NC Scout

Preparedness, Grid-down and Improvised Communications

NC Scout is the nom de guerre of a former Sergeant in the US Army. Serving in Special Reconnaissance and Infantry units across three combat deployments in Iraq and Afghanistan, he actively works to bring those same skills to those devoted to the founding principles of our Republic.

Running the risk of being called a neo-Luddite, his home and shop are filled with the aroma of Hoppe’s No. 9 & Sweet’s 7.62, Diesel fuel, craft beer and lard-cured cast iron amid an eclectic mix of improvised radio equipment. He is just as at home in a down-grid log cabin as he is in a downtown coffee shop or taproom, but prefers anytime he can spend in the wild. An avid hunter, tracker, shooter, reloader, and amateur radio enthusiast, his hobbies are all geared toward survival and self reliance and focused on building a resilient community for anything nature or society may throw.

He is the editor of brushbeater.wordpress.com, a blog dedicated to all things preparedness but with a special focus placed upon off-grid and improvised communications. He offers training and consulting both public and private on topics ranging from field communications for the small unit and communities to austere medicine, wilderness resilience, small unit tactics and marksmanship.
