  • SINCGARS course?

    Gonna be starting syncgars course soon and was wondering what does the course involve?

    Is it like learning about a weapon i.e. Stripping and assembly, maintainance or is it just how to operate it?

    Don't know if the information is in the public domain so PM me if its confidential.

    Cheers

    It consists (or at least used to consist) of operating it. Stripping, assembly and maintenance consists of removing and replacing the battery and antennae, and possibly of installing it into a Nissan Patrol.

    There are training programmes available online which cover the operation of in the same detail as I covered it when in Sigs, minus voice procedure. (You can of course talk to your computer anyway if you wish; "Hello Papa Charlie, Hello Papa Charlie, this is Havoc Ireland, message over" )
    Take these men and women for your example.
    Like them, remember that posterity can only
    be for the free; that freedom is the sure
    possession of those who have the
    courage to defend it.

      You mean SINCGARS (Single Channel Ground and Airborne Radio System)

      Below is the US Army manual. It's like using a computer, loading in info to get an end result.... I won't get any more detailed than that. Read the manual.

        JAG, Antennae is one of the paired, flexible, segmented sensory appendages on the head of an insect, myriapod, or crustacean functioning primarily as an organ of touch.. Radios have metallic apparatus for sending or receiving electromagnetic waves called Antennas.

          Its official, I hate the thing. One lesson, I'm already lost and it seems that whenever someone is about to transmit they start with "Eh?, Hello Alpha....................."

              Yes, the call sign initiating the call starts with the word "HELLO..."

              What's so complicated about that...????

                  You would think that anyone going on a SINCGARS course would be taught voice procedure first.

                    Voice procedure was part of recruit training..at least it was when I joined..

                            Voice procedure and communications is not part of the Recruit Syllabus.

                            Nor is it part of the 2-3* syllabus (Outside of CIS)

                            Nor the Pot NCOs syllabus

                            Believe it or not, Nowadays, the first course you will do which gives any comms training is the Standard NCOs Cse

                            Not that it makes any difference, noone has any SINCGARs to train on anyway. In fact, ask how many SINCGARs instructors are about anyways.

                            In my day, each unit has its own '77 sets. They may not have worked but at least we had them and by swopping around equipment, you could get 2 of them working. Voice procedure etc. was part of the 2-3* syllabus. Most ptes had some idea how the radio worked and voice procedure.

                            Nowadays, even a Platoon radio operator shouldn't even know anything about them.

                            So much for the re-org.

                              Voice procedure was not thought to me as a recruit 2* 3* or cpl i thought myself the little i know, but sound like certain leaders believe the concept of "no comms no bombs" and excercised enough cop on to do the right thing (its killin me but it seems they're all in the south!!)
                              But there's no danger
                              It's a professional career
                              Though it could be arranged

                              If you're out of luck you're out of work
