  • Online Sincgars Training

    The RDFRA site has a link to an on-line Sincgars manual. Is this manual identical to the type used by the Defence Forces, or is it referring to a different model? If there are substantial differences could anyone suggest an alternative? Is it possible to learn how to use the Sincgars (at least the basics) by using on-line sources? My unit seems not to bother training on radios so its up to ourselves to learn. Can anyone help?

    I do have a soft copy of the SINCGARS TacAid used by us, but I'm not giving it to you
    Na, Na, Nana :p

    I'm sorry Kermit, but I fell around the place laughing when I saw your response, but.... Your dead right, I also have manuals, handouts etc. but this is most certainly NOT the place to give out such material.

    However all is not lost Western Commando, some time last year a member of the board posted a website with links to American SINGAR info one or two of these links had a program which would test your basic SINGAR skills, I'll have a look for it when I get home and will let you know, the site address.

      Don’t worry Kermit; I wasn’t looking for classified material. I think at this stage that all posters should realise that to give restricted information out on-line is a serious offence and rightly so. What I was looking for were links, etc, which would allow me to learn the basics of the Sincgar without having to harass my Cadre with requests for manuals, etc., on the principal that if the Steyr manual is available there should be something somewhere on the Sincgar.

      Stand Fast; if you posted that link I’m sure it would solve my problem. Cheers.

              They still blame "some mechanised unit". It failed to reappear some time after said unit left that location,never to return....Allegedly...
              I blame the militaria collectors myself of course.. ..allegedly!

                    I did. I've looked at every SINCGAR resource on the web.

                    You are better advised to be taught by a local instructor who will teach you properly.
                    "Are they trying to shoot down the other drone? "

                    "No, they're trying to fly the tank"

                      What's the big deal with SINCGARS training? What's so secret about it?

                      Turn the switch to LOAD, set the CHANNEL selector to the desired number, press FREQ, press CLEAR, enter the frequency, press STORE. Hey presto, you have now programmed a channel.

                      Now repeat the procedure on another radio. You can now talk to one another using the handsets !!!

                      Easy-peasy, and not very secret. In fact, most radios, (of the military and non-military variety), work the same way !!!

                      Later.
