OPS LANDY

#1
Are Ops landys fitted with the Clansman 320s??? I've gotta weekend exercise at Swynnerton start of april and heard we've got one joning us and since i'm the regimental signaller for our contingent, i'm the only person who knows how to use a 320. great :roll:

Expand a little on what an 'Ops Landy' is mate.............................
 
#3
i think cadet chav spk for an FFR?

or maybe a typo...Op SLANDY?
 
#4
Well.. if its anything like the landys we use... its probably a FFR (meaning its fitted with a 353)...

SR10

It completely depends on what nets you're using. HF or VHF?
Find out who's providing the vehicle and then ask them what kit they'll be coming with and what nets they'll be operating on?

paveway - obviously you don't know that much! Of course you can use a 320 clipped into a rover! - It ain't rocket science fella!!!

Easy - frame clips into the racking in the FFR, connect to a whip antenna on the side of the wagon (the ones on the side by the canopy, not the front) and Robert's your mum's whotsit.

Oh god - the RSO course is coming flooding back into my head. Help!

The question is - why would you want to use a CIK on an FFR to fit a PRC 320?

Use the power - go for a VRC 321! Big bendy antennas are the way ahead! :)

You wouldn't choose to use a 320. But if your establishment or availability doesn't provide you with enough 321's they may be all you have :(

Your not one of those loons that bend the front vehicle whips back over towards the top of the FFR, cos it looks 'cool' are you? More whips the better though. VHF is the way ahead anyway, far too much random gibberish on HF. A close contender for heaven is a rebro det in July, possibly only beaten by a relay relay.

VHF may be great for people operating within fairly close proximity to each other (10's of KM's). But if you're operating over any greater distance then HF is the daddy. :D

Haha, HF is good for range but insecure and then you actually have to make your operators actually think a bit and have to encode things.

To go back to the original question, depending on what it is the regiment is doing/scaled for it is unlikely that an 'Ops landy' probably being an FFR is fitted with a 320 as standard, a 321 and/or a 353 is far more familiar being VRC's rather than PRC's.

The army has professional communicators?!?! Well I guess we're paid for it.

Well you cannot know that much if you think you can use a 320 on a ''ROVER''
well rovers can be fitted with 351/2 or 320 Clip-ins if its a troop cv or if your talking sqn or regt level then generally VRC's would be fitted
