No but I'd be interested to hear whats being taught (I've just learned majority of our NCRS are being put into storage), presume your doing ICS Op?

Well, if it is "just you" then it won't be a terribly exciting, interesting or challenging experience will it? Better check the weather forecast to see how many of your comrades are likley to turn up. May be a tad chilly in January methinks.

I know there are others going from your Sqn - have you contacted them?
What's the big deal about travelling from Suffolk?

As far as I know it's in Edinbourgh. The courses run are Sys Eng Tech, ICS Ops, ED and driver training. Pm me for more info.

Many hours travelling, I thought the normal place for trade camps was ok for all (Sywnerton - middle of the UK), just needed some investment in better training facilities and accomodation. Edinburgh is very good but a little too close to town to keep the students from partying every night.

Low cost airlines from that well known Essex backwater known as Stansted. Job's a good'un. I'll wager that any Suffolk based TA signaller will get there quicker than slogging up to Swynerton via white fleet

You need to look at the Trade Training locations that have just been promulgated for three 2 (NC) Bde training camps this year.

Which as I understand it are now based in three centres to split the UK into three logical chunks.

Bullet Magnet and other keenies can travel (and get trade pay earlier), more tortoise like volunteers can wait and go to their nearest one.

I do love my new job, :lol: Is this a permanent thing. I really hope Edinburgh isn't one of them, its bloomin miles away (and I'm from the 'Northern' most English signal regiment), Blandford doesn't take much more time to get to from my location.

What trade course are you doing? Have you spoken to your muckers about this? Or your Tp SNCO/YofS/FofS/PSI? You can PM me and we can talk about it if you wish.

From what I heard from the last trade camp held at Donnington, everyone had a good time, worked hard and did well. Go with a open mind and a willingness to learn and you won't go wrong. And don't be afraid to ask questions!

I have in front of me a freshly printed copy of RSTOs for the Class 3 ICS Op (UK Ops) trade. As I said PM me if you have specific enquiries. However, you should be covering:

Info Security
EW
Manipulative Skills
Deployment of Comms Installations (that includes HF/VHF dets amongst others)
Radio Communications Skills
A+P
IT
Detachment Duties

All that and 2 weeks in Edinburgh? Bargin!

And they would know? I get the vast majority of information (trade, changes etc) from this site and next to nowt throu the system.

I haven't even seen a sniff of the new RSTO for operators, all I know is its been sent to Blandford (and again all that comes from this site).

Speak for yourself Merlin.

Some of us may very well know - or be proactive enough to at least know where to ask. I'm happy to share what I have.

If you've done Voice Procedure then it will be a great help, very little time was allocated to the subject during my Class 3.
