It proves you have a pulse and as long as you're not a compete ****, you'd be eligible for a transfer if that's what you're asking...Evening all,
Quick question if I may...
What, if any, weight does being a Regimental Signals Instructor within the RAC hold with in the Royal Signals?
From my understanding of when I was an RSI, the actual RSigs is very specialised and it's a case of a Signaller may be awesome at TacSat and know it inside out but have no idea about HF, etc (as an example).Something I'm maybe thinking about yeah
I think you are way out of date - The Core Skills are VHF and HF for all R SIGNALS operators. TaCSAT is specialist and in Core Eqpt now but that uses UHF bandwidth.From my understanding of when I was an RSI, the actual RSigs is very specialised and it's a case of a Signaller may be awesome at TacSat and know it inside out but have no idea about HF, etc (as an example).
It had briefly flickered across my mind but I didn't fancy being radio stag forevermore and I wasn't overly impressed with the people in the RSigs.
Are you RAC? RSigs will push you towards your full screw if you've not got it. The route was always Gunnery is Funnery or No Comms No Bombs apart from the weirdos who went DM Instructor instead.
I also don't know if RSI actually means anything to the RSigs and if they'd recognise it or if they've their own wanky system. There was always fallout that the RAC had basically made their own sigs world. Could get political!!
ETA: In fact, aye, I was talking to our LEWT lads who were attached arms RSigs and Int Corp and the RSigs lads said exactly that - highly specialised and little cross transferring of skills within the Corp.
