Squad leader communications

Post by J.Rautio » 23 Apr 2010, 09:04


I have a practical question about squad leaders communications. What is the best way to arrange communication with platoon leader and the rest of your squad? We have agreed to use PMR-radios for squad-platoon communications and we are also using PMRs in internal squad coms.

Sure I can setup my Cobra MT800 to listen two channels, but how to solve the transmit issue? I must be able to transmit to platoon channel, but how to be able to transmit to squad channel as well? Best solution I have come up with so far is having two radios. Any suggestions?

Somebody need to have two radios... Good solution is to have at least one programmable radio on squad-level. Pl-c will have BE-provided radios(LPD), and it seems to be alot chatting on PMR(sq-level). Pl-c listen on BE-Radio and sq-l change chanel or change radio to call his Pl-c...

Here in norway we often use PRRs for squad level communications and a PMR attached to it. This way, you have one headset to listen to both radios, and two buttons to talk to either squad level or for the PMR.

in our team BRAVO Co. I use 2 radios
navcomm with 5W power and multi chanel/frequency options as SL, HQ comunications (RTO) and second one (actually the same model with small antena) to squad communication.
First one with cable phone that i can pass it to squad leader, and second one with earphones. this combination let you
1. comunicate with squad
2. comunicate with HQ
3. pass radio to SL

Squad leaders are having to use mainly PMRs. Should you be looking for a good new one, look into the market place, I have one for sale.
