TENS for CAP members is silly affectation.

When a notebook dies, rarely, you just use something else.

A CAP notebook that dies isn't likely going to run TENS, either, and during a mission
ICS staff have better things to do then reload notebooks.

But whatever, Apocalypse gonna Apocalypse.

^ The only "USAF personnel" at a SARex are going to be CAP-USAF people.

And as you type "but...",  it's not a CAP ES role to be fixing anyone's PCs during a mission,
regardless of why some rando USAF person is there or if they dropped their PC in the parking lot.

Honestly, this Apocalypse mentality holds CAP back in so many ways.

The vast majority of missions are accomplished with a few forms, a couple of laptops, some cell phones,
and a few radios.

Members do not need Time Travel GPS Units,  Arc Reactors, or a carload of Pelicans filled with "you never know".

An ipad and a hotspot are actually all anyone needs.

You've never had a laptop fail in the field I see. FWIW, I was referring to using TENS on CAP laptops, which are quite up to the task, allow you to get to e-services, and have the fringe benefit of then being good for CAC/PIV use for those members capable of using them.

You seem to have gotten it into your head that I'm repairing non-CAP property somehow, but even then, that belies an ignorance of what a live CD/USB OS is for. The entire point is to bring a machine online in a secure environment, and to supplant the need for a hard drive should the hard drive for whatever reason fail.

ICUT is a good idea, and someone at the SAREx should be able to knock out the practical for you, but with your time in,
if you can't do the online in like 10 minutes, then it's time to hang it up.

See if you can get the FAM/Prep for UDF done as well, then you could go out on en ELT.
I have the online part knocked out twice, I keep missing the practical. It will be done tomorrow.

I mean, geez, I've talked on CAP radios for over 30 years....

^ Not  CAP "thing" and wholly unnecessary for CAP ES operations.

Not a thing for you, but having a near instant recovery after a hard drive crash that happens to have bells and whistles for any USAF personnel visiting sure should be a CAP "thing."

CAP isn't remotely tasked with fixing CAP-USAF computers, and it's silly to assert it should be.

Nowhere did I assert anything about fixing CAP-USAF computers.

NIN:

kidding about the size of your state aside, this is a good question (albeit liable to degenerate into "gear nerd fights"). I would suggest three things more bearing in mind your personal training state/goals:

1. Remember to take any personal meds, including your choice for headaches.


2. Pattern rightly mentioned checklists/books... to amplify, take both your mission staff TASK GUIDE, as well as your mission staff REFERENCE TEXT:

3. I'm betting that you haven't done ICUT; if you'll be breaking into supporting Comm (and its required for MSA), take a laptop to spend some time working through the course during slack time. ICUT is now hosted on the new Axis LMS at:
