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:

    I really don't mean to be rude but WHY? By the way, Selector Unit Radio Frequency, SURF. Most of us thought it was a waste of effort and disconnected it from the system, Theres a fair few of them buried in the Saudi desert.

    I'm pretty sure it was a money making exercise from days gone by. As a bit of kit it was useless.
  4. Ring Blandford's A+P section and ask for Mick or John, they'll be able to square you away
  5. These threads in the Royal Signals part of this site are ******* boring
  6. Oh sorry, we thought that this is the kind of thing that it is for. Or would you prefer it if we posted dancing frogs in tutu's?
  7. Good retort, like it, now lets see what he wants to discuss thats so absorbing
  8. SURF 25W was never designed to be used with 321 & Turf unless in Div/Bde HQ. There i always attenuation loss and SWR with SURF however, due to the QRM filter that the surf provided it was thought that it benefited rather than hindered. A question................why?
  9. Jeez
    that pic's really got my motor running - I've never seen such a pristine TURF

    Who's that daft chick in the cozzie?

    Just because you don't understand what is being said, although to be fair the tech spec of SURFs is pretty boring, maybe why you can look forward to working in MacDonalds. Loved your mum by the way.
  11. A SURF is for clowns who cannot be bothered to work out and cut their antennnas to the required lengths.
    It was designed to cut down on interference on other bands i.e. a glorified hi/lo pass filter.
    Man up - bin the SURF and sort out the wires. Jeez. You'll be trying to tell us that the Royal Sigs can do morse next...Tsk,tsk.
  12. Lighten up
    it's been a while
  13. Hi Roadster280

    As a slight side not and I quote "If you're making a general purpose HF station, a 12m mast & second TURF would be on my list before a SURF"

    So on a full fit 432(or 6 if you insist :)) mounted set up is it possible that a second Turf would have been carried so the 'fixed' one did not need removing to put at the base of the mast when using a 12m mast or would this have been considered a luxury?

    Cheers - Don
  14. Found the fault after getting circuit............
    cheers Jim
  15. In my experience its for when you run up your teleprinter next to the regimental 320 - you would only notice you needed one if your net was being wiped out by some antisocial interference from the set next door ;-)
