Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Hi, I'm looking at becoming a communication systems operator (selection in a couple week) and wondering what its like day to day?

    I've done a search and all I can find are vague references to it being boring?

    Along with any day to day happenings are they needed on tour? would I get out to actually get to do the job?

    ta boys.
     
  2. Yes, you will work with the kit, alot.
     
  3. no one here a comm sys op? pm me please or post, ta.
     
  4. Well being a CS Op will bring you varied employment dependent on where you get posted. If you go to a Bde Sig Sqn or a Div Sig Regt you will primarily operate the Bowman radio system and get out to all the nice places on tour - Iraq and Afghan. Dependent on what role you do in theatre you could find yourself operating next to the Infantry in a close support role.

    Other units such as 2 Sigs you will do pre employment training pertinent to the equipment held at your unit and you will still go on tour, but be doing a more strategic level job.

    Hope this helps PM me for more details.
