Some here may remember that pre- BATCO, there was MAPCO and SLIDEX. This doubled the possibilities that you didn't have a ******* clue what you were doing.

TA Sigs in the 80's and BATCO was just a chuffin hassle. We used plain language whenever possible and gave Grobendonk the finger with clansman on full power! Trouble was we got a load of radio hams doing morse and interfereing. I often wonder if the morse buggered up our sigs being picked up by Grobendonk?

I believe that they made use of Gaelic and Welsh speaking signallers during WW2 for that very reason. Instant encryption.
