TA Radio Systems Operator (Radio)
I think RS Op (Radio) got canned.

The other trade is Radio Systems Op (Basic)(V) (found in TA Ptarmigan units) which is equivalent of the old Tele Op (Radio), your trade is the TA equivalent of the old Tele Op (RTG)

Not sure if this is as TA or Sigs questions...

I'm currently a Class 3 -

TA Radio Systems Operator (NC) National Communications?

Is there another Rad Op trade? i.e.

TA Radio Systems Operator (Radio)
The NC part of it doesnt matter You are a Radio Systems operator. If you joined another unit that are not NC you would keep the same trade but use different kit that you probably havent got in your current unit like 353 346 etc

Thats true but I personnaly think the RS Op (NC) trade title is quite misleading, it doesn't map very well to regular or TA ptarmigan RS trade.

Most of our none FFR equipment is used by AS Ops in the regs not RS Ops

Just wondered if the (NC) tag meant the trade was pointless? i.e. Qualified in out of date kit etc...

So is there another RS op qualification for Bowman?
Out of date kit??? Most of my kit is less than 2 years old :!: :!:

No NC will do Bowman and still have to know about several thousand other systems

The glorious Spec Op is still in the beloved Corps. Rumours are rife at the momment but they have been for years. Cant see it happening for a few years to be honest. However we do work mostly with the Slime, suppose can only be a matter of time like our Lingo's going across a few years back. To be honest i would rather stay in the Corps though! Wait out

Speaking as a ex PSi at a TA unit, RS OP (NC) it doesnt matter when you get attached to a reg unit you will still be classed as aN RSOP, The (NC) is only there while you with your (TA) sqn.


The HFAP's werenot t that time compatible with bowman, this might have changed but i seriously doubt it, however the TX/RX's would have been. I dont trust the NC kit anyway, you can have it fully working, then move the wagon 3 ft and it wouldnt be. Its old technology designed for post nuclear strike, and it massively needs a re think!

Yes the Regiment has the above .... but we don't at at our Sqn. (We do have the mobile phones.... sorry Airwave)
What about RAS/RLI and AMSCERP? Your main role isn't post nuclear its CCRF support

Think you'll find things have already changed we rarely use the equipment you mention, most of us NC regts have reroled over the last 2 years. I've also heard a rumour that this kit is to be withdrawn from service.

Obviously they will do, but take my recent trg - I've been on plenty of exercises wthin the last year where I've driven a DAF pulling a 16/24, laying out telephones (and PC's), connecting them upto the mux/switch and getting the trunk links established.
Thats not a RS Op I'm describing is it - its an AS Op, plus the NCRS functions more like a SAS/MC than a FFR det.

Bibo, our main roll is CCRF, mainly using the FFR dets with HF, Airwave, Raz and Amcerp.
I cant remember the last time NCRS got taken out of the garage! I believe the trailers are all VOR due to the towing eye from one of the vehicles in 265 shearing off mid way down the m40, causing an investigation into how it happened.
I have recently asked our OC whether it was being de-commisioned and his answer was no.
Anyways, we havent done any comms since sept last year so why does it matter! lol
