Radio Traffic?

Discussion in 'Military History and Militaria' started by MP72, Jul 3, 2013.

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Can anyone point me in the direction of some recordings of cold war era radio traffic? At one point I'd had it saved from youtube but a hard drive crash ensures that I've lost all of that. Any trainspotters here that can help?
  2. Not actually Cold-war, but I do have a link to what is ostensibly WW2 radio chatter.
  3. If it's any help, I can remember the words.

    Chatter? I recall endless days of imposed radio silence.

    If I had ever known that the indecipherable Russian chatter, filling my headset, when I was trying to pass my RRU cadre, was ever going to be a) valuable or b) of historical interest. I would have recorded it, unfortunately I didn't and so haven't, but at least one of the Russian radio operators was female and sounded sexy (my imagination may have been running away with me on a cold wet German training area).
