You're in the wrong forum here mate; these guys are trunk comms, not combat net radio. You won't need flashsticks.jepprob87 said:... i'm in a rifle coy in an infantry battalion an have been appointed pl signaler...
Good advice yet these guys are trunk comms? I remember distinctly being trained on CNR otherwise what was I doing for those 6 months in Blandford.jepprob87 said:You're in the wrong forum here mate; these guys are trunk comms, not combat net radio. You won't need flashsticks.
You rightly pointed out to the lad that he's on the wrong forum but to point out the obvious.... Higround said he remembered being taught CNR for 6 months - I distincly remember blagging a career of twenty odd years working and managing CNR. Where do you think your extracts etc. come from and who provides the comms from hicom? Admittedly I never worked further forward than BG HQ - that's where the inf are kings.Paoli said:
