Radio and milsim

Recommended Posts

Is radio needed for milsim? If so, whats a good radio that i could get started with?

While not required, it is a great way to stay in touch with your squad and into the action. Baofengs (UV-5R) are good radios for the cost, it's what most people run at events.

Be extremely careful. A month ago on the river fire in California, division Delta had CB traffic constantly interfering on a federal frequency. I know we're pretty much going to be in the middle of nowhere, but it's better safe than sorry.

First timer for Southern Front II. Just purchased a Baofeng UV-5R for this event. I don't know anything about radios other than push to talk. Is there anything in particular I need to know/do to prepare my radio prior to the event?

Yes, I suggest getting a programming cable and learning how to program the radio for different frequencies. Also, I highly suggest getting a chart that shows all non licensed frequencies. The exception is milsim’s in which case they will tell you what frequency to use.

Will do! Thank you very much!
