I was lucky enough to be stuck up the Viterog 3 weeks after joining 3RHA. Had an absolutely great time all the bacon butties you could eat, manhandling everything off the iso containers in 18 inches of snow, digging snowholes and a bit of sigs stuff thrown in to stop us getting too bored!!! Good times.
The hill top was some considerable distance away. Yes, the factory was shot at and people went to sleep hearing the restful sound of rounds hitting the gravel outside the portacabin type accomodation. Eventually an operation was laid on (presumably by the RAF Regiment, honest!) and the man's house was raided, the wife's reaction being 'Thank Bog you've come'. The gentleman had been in the habit of sniping BLMF when pissed. He was reported to the RS Civpol but somehow I doubt that any significant penalty was imposed, as long as he stopped doing it.
That sounds about right to me, top floor, front of hotel, overlooking both the military car park and the dodgy black market set-up (i.e. the local car garages where the stolen German cars were re-plated), just outside the perimeter, on the main road.
There were a few around Banja Luka. There was one not to far from the factory itself, a 10-15 min drive just of the main road and up through a small village and wooded area. If you went approx 45 mins in the opposite direction you had Lisena west which was a British RRB site and around the other side of the mountain was Lisena east which was a Czech comms and QRF site.
They aren’t jammers, except in so far as every transmitter is potentially a jammer of some sort. If they belonged to BSA they’re basically the BSA equivalent of our Ptarmigan Triffid vehicles and would have been used to maintain C2 links over multi channel radio relay shots. You confused me by describing them as ‘EW/Sigint’, which they aren’t.
