Communications

Post by Admin on Wed Sep 14, 2016 8:18 pm

We recognize different types of communication
Radio, and direct communication.

Its important to know when to use your radio, and when to use direct communication. For the best we want to avoid high usage of radio, and radios should be used only when necessary to make sure you don't overflood it with un-necessary content. Everyone depending on their role, will have access to a radio.

Fireteams will have their personal net's. 101.1(First fireteam), and 101.2(Second fireteam), which they'll use to communicate between their inner teams(BLUE, RED), pass down orders, contact reports and such.

Command net, which will include all the fireteam leaders, and the overall command of the operation. This net will be used to pass down further commands and orders, status checks and so on.



To ensure that the radios are being used correctly and most effectivly, we will follow a few protocols.

Identification.
- When speaking on the radio, you should firstly identify yourself.
If you are communicating across the radio, you initiate each transmission with who you're talking to, followed by your own callsign, wait for an acknowledgment, and then send your message.
(Example Main net;
- A-2 SL: " Actual, this is Alpha 2, how copy? over.
- Alpha Actual SL: "Alpha copies, send it, over.
- A-2 SL: "Be advised, we are stationed at RP 2, awaiting further oders."
- Alpha Actual SL: "Actual copies all, remain put until A-1 regroups with you, over and out")
This makes sure that the radio chat is organized and easy to understand.

Over, Over and out, Brake:
Over - When you finish with a sentance, you should say over at the end this way you are informing the opposite side that you are done speaking, and that they can now return the message.
Over and out - When you finish a conversation, you use over and out to inform all parties that the conversation is finished.
Brake - When you finish a sentance but wish to add more.(ex: "Be advised, friendlies moving south-west, brake. However be careful for EI, to your north, over."

Some general words you can use to make radio comms short and easily understandable;
Copy / Roger - Understading something, and complying with it.
Stand by - This acts as either a wait request or a preparatory command.
Be advised - Used to indicate important information during a radio communication.
Say again / Repeat last - The prior message was not understood

Some commands you can pass onto your team, both on radio and direct communication.
On Me - Command by the element leader to tell his element members to form up on him and follow him. You can add formation to this. (ex: "On me, wedge.)
Move out / moving / step off / stepping - Commands used to indicate the beginning of a period of movement. (ex: Move out of the compound,to the North.)
Hold - self explenatory.
Standy for orders - all squads consolidate their position, assume a defensive and secure posture, get a count of their numbers, check their ammo situation, and stand by for orders.

Personal status, you can report on the radio.
Up - General statement to indicate that a player has returned to a ready state. (eg: TL: "Casulties check", You: "3, is up"
Set - Said to indicate that an element is in position.(eg: Often used in bounding.)

Fire control.
Cease Fire - Used to cause a temporary lull in the shooting.
Hold Fire - This command is used to maintain stealth. When under this command you are not to engage any EI, until ordered to do so.

Warnings.
Frag Out - Warning call given when throwing a grenade. (A MUST!)
Grenade - Warning call given when an enemy grenade is thrown at you.
Incoming / IDF / Indirect - Warning calls given when enemy indirect fire is inbound at you.

Vehicles.
Mount
Dismount

Reports.
Reporting enemy contacts is highly important and a critical skill to have. A good contact report contains of the following elements;
1. Alert everyone that you've spotted an enemy, words such as "CONTACT, ENEMY" will do.
2. After gaining attention of the others, point out where the contact is. Depending on the situation you can give different sets of orentation its up to you to chose the best.
"FRONT, RIGHT, LEFT, BEHIND" (Often in room clearing)
"CLOCK BEARING (12, 6, 3, 9, 5...etc) (Suits best in vehicles)
"(Compass bearing) "North, east 40" ( best used in open fields, and such)
3. After pointing out the location, describe what contact you saw. (Enemy Vehicle, Enemy Infantry)
4. Range (Point out, approximate range from you and the contact)
(EG:  "Contact front! Enemy infantry in the open, bearing 210, three hundred meters!" )

SITREP.

The situation report, or SITREP, is a quick way for a leader to get information on his troops.
