I have a couple questions about radio etiquette and operating procedures.

 

I'm really interested in the subject because I work in LE/Emergency comms.  One thing that's a huge pain in the ass is superfluous chatter. We have SOP's for that but regardless, there's always those few who love to hear themselves talk or want to play IC(when they're not)-or they're just playing.  I imagine having hundreds of people who DON'T do this for a living would be chaotic and perhaps disastrous for efficient communication.  Is nonessential chatter a big problem at these events?  Truthfully, I'm fine not even bringing a radio if that's what I'll be hearing.  I'd rather have my mind in the game than chatting.   

 

Am I just worrying about nothing?      

 

Are there any types of SOPs or at least generally understood basic procedures for faction/squad/fireteam comms to cut down on all this? I understand the rules against eavesdropping and other clandestine shenanigans.  

 

Are there set channels for squads/fireteams?  PL tones?

From my understanding, only SL's and QRFL's have comms with eachother and higher ups, as a rifleman, support gunner, etc you don't have access to comms so you won't have to worry about that. I've yet to attend, but I've seen many videos. Jet Desertfox has an OP Copperhead series that you can get a good idea of how it goes. Hope this helps!

It's certainly a problem at some local and mid sized ops.  I'd imagine it's a problem at bigger ones as well and probably why some comms frequencies are kept secret.  

 

Keeping a com plan together can be quite complicated if you can't get cooperation from your team.  I have set it up before with different "channels" for a team I was playing with for a bit.  You had team wide channel for general chat/info exchange, fire team channels, and an HQ channel that was to kept clear except for comms between team leaders and the leadership.

every one has a radio but you are broken down to who you can get a hold of. your basic grunt can only comunicate with his squad of guys to help caal stuff out and find each other and realy info to his SL. the SL can talk to his Squad and his PL and the PL can TALK TO HIs SLs and the rest of the uper comand staff. if im mistaken let me know, At lest that was how it was for me at esr 4 in Alpha Co

It basically comes down to this. It just depends on if your using a BN or Company model, one just has an extra Tier.


My job is to clarify and enforce policy, not to make policy.
