If you're that far away from trade trg then don't worry about it! Radio Relay is going out of the window in the not so distant future, go for radio operator instead - voice procedure and A&P theory never changes. You'll also gain exposure to bowman in the not so distant future, preparing you better for more ICS roles (and if you ever decide to change regiment people will always need your skill set). Handy for when Ptarmigan gets binned.
Saying that if you enjoy running around like a mad man with 12M masts that weigh a small ton, plugging up and then sitting around all the time on ex until the next move, just getting up to change the DVD, go on stag, and fill the gennies then that's fine.
Yeah but relay training is a laugh and you get a HGV license out of it. Retraining in the future wouldn't really be a problem.
We don't know what will happen with 33, 34 & 35. What equipment and locations, etc. They may be effected by divisional boundary changes that come into effect in a few years. These will probably effect 37 and 38 Sigs more, I expect to be in either 32 or 34 Signal Regiments in a few years time.
