I've been a lurker for some time now, figured it'd be useful to register. As you can guess by my call sign I'm in the TA, I'm currently undergoing foundation training with the signals and will soon have to make a decision on my trade. The initial psychometric testing indicated I have officer potential but the next TCB and potential officer interviews that I will be able to get on to will probably be in December, in the meantime I will have to atleast choose a trade to train for. My question is what trade would benefit me most for understanding the role of signals as a potential future officer? I've been looking at area systems as a possibilliy since it is a large part of signals operations, can anyone shed any information on what the roles is like, past the basic army website description?
