SINCGARS FAMILIARIZATION AND OPERATION Primary Instructor: SGT SPENCER Assist Instructor: SGT LEWIS 549 th MP CO
TASK: Communicate via Tactical Radio in a Secure Net CONDITIONS: Give an operational radio net with an SOI, fill device with appropriate fills, fill cable, and an operational distant station STANDARDS: Establish voice communications with the distant tactical radio/network within three minutes References: TM TM
METHODS OF COMMUNICATION VISUAL SIGNALS (Hand signals, Semaphore) SOUND SIGNALS (Speaking from one person to another) MESSENGER (Sending another person to deliver either a written or voice message) WIRED SIGNALS (Land-line telephone, DSVT/DNVT, TA-312, TA-1) RADIO COMMUNICATIONS (SINCGARS, PRC-77, PRC-127)
PURPOSE Provide familiarization / refresher training on SINCGARS radios through conference style instruction and hands – on practical exercises. Ensure personnel are capable of operating SINCGARS radios in Frequency Hopping Modes. Ensure personnel are trained to perform both hot and cold start net openings.
RADIO COMMUNICATIONS ADVANTAGES Fast Covers long distance Secure capabilities Send the message to large amounts of people at once DISADVANTAGES Weather Terrain Inexperience can compromise Requires a power source
SINgle Channel Ground Airborne Radio System WHAT DOES SINCGARS MEAN?
AN/PRC-119F AN/VRC-90F Long Range AN/VRC-87F Short Range AN/VRC-88F Short Range and Manpack No PA AN/VRC-89F Short and Long Range AN/VRC-91F Short and Long Range plus Manpack AN/VRC-92F Long /Long Range PA Models RT-1523E
[CMSC] (#1) used to scroll COMSEC keys TEK used in channels 1-5 and may be used in channel 6. KEK used in chan. 6. [RCU] (#2) used to convert to a remote system. Can operate up to 4 km away. [SYNC] (#3) used during FH to sync RT to net. [FREQ] use to call channel database to display. “FILL” means channel is empty. With Function switch in SQ. [FREQ] and #7 used to set backlights. [ERF/OFFSET] key not recommended. Use air net synchronization instead. [OFST] is a SC anti-jam procedure. [SA] & [GPS] keys not used at this time. SINCGARS ASIP Keypad
[DATA] key (#4) allows you to set data rate [CHG] (change) key in conjunction with [DATA], [OFFSET] or [CMSC] keys to scroll through data/options. [CID] key is not used at this time. [LOUT] key rarely used. [TIME] key used to enter Julian date and sync time. [BATT/CALL] key used to set and check battery life in a dismount radio. Also used for commo between RT and RCU. [STO] key used to place data into memory. [LOAD] key use to load data into holding memory and retrieve data from permanent memory. [CLR/MENU] key is used with other keys to delete entries or stored data.
Set Volume – (5) Set Channel - (MAN, CUE or 1-6) Set Power - (low, med, hi or PA) Set Mode - Single Channel(SC) and Frequency Hopping (FH) Set COMSEC – Plain Text (PT) and Cipher Text (CT) Set [FCTN] switch to LD Load SC frequencies Press [FREQ] key Press [CLR] key Enter 3 digits for FH and 5 digits for SC frequencies Press [STO] SINCGARS ASIP Keypad
Set FCTN Switch to: [Z] “Zeroize” Radio displays “GOOD” Switch to [LD] (Load) Load COMSEC Set Frequency Load Julian Date/Zulu Time SINCGARS (ASIP) Power-Up Procedures
Part 1- Single Channel/Plain Text
MODE TO SC FCTN TO LD COMSEC TO PT CHAN TO REQUIRED CHANNEL SC SETTINGS
LOAD YOUR FREQUENCIES 1- Press FREQ Press CLR Enter frequency Press STOScreen flashes once, frequency is loaded 5- Turn FCTN switch to SQ ON and enter the net with your call sign Screen will read
Part 2- Frequency Hop
FH SETTINGS COMSEC TO CT AN/CYZ-10 to FILL Via W-4 cable CHAN TO 1 MODE TO FH FCTN TO LD
DATA/FILL CONNECTORS FILL- To connect fill devices (KYK-13, KYK-15, AN/CYZ-10) to load FH data and COMSEC DATA- To connect hand mike (H-250/u or H-350/u) or to connect RT to mounting bracket in vehicular use.

LOAD YOUR HOPSET 1.Turn AN/ CYZ-10 on 2.Select Radio 3.Select Send 4.Select Radio AN/CYZ-10 Screen will read Soi Radio supervisor Send Receive Database setup Comsec Time send to: Radio Ancd Stu Pc Select: iCom Nonicom Abn Rcu Haveq
LOAD YOUR HOPSET 5.Select iCom 6.Connect ANCD to RT with the W-4 cable, press ENTR key 7.Ensure FCTN switch is set to LD, Press ENTR key Connect to RT AUD/FILL Connector Set FCTN switch to LD on RT Do you want to include time?(Y/N) AN/CYZ-10 Screen will read 8.Select Y Press [LOAD] on RT AN/ CYZ-10 Screen will read
LOAD YOUR HOPSET BEFORE YOU PRESS [LOAD] YOU MUST KEY THE HANDMIKE UNTIL YOU HEAR A LONG, STEADY TONE. IF YOU DO NOT DO THIS, YOU WILL GET THE MESSAGE “HANDSHAKE FAILED”. IF YOU GET THAT MESSAGE, START OVER, AND MAKE SURE THAT YOU KEY THE HANDMIKE.
LOAD YOUR HOPSET 9.Press LOAD (0 key) on the RT keypad 10.CYZ-10 screen will scroll through the various keys and hopsets it is loading. When done, it will read Transfer in progress AN/CYZ-10 Screen will read ICOM transfer successful
No Power Amplifier Power Amplifier VAA serves as a vehicle mount for the SINCGARS ASIP As an Internet Controller (INC) serves as link to TI If a platform’s SINCGARS/VAA/INC is not “up”, that platform will not appear in any SA displays Vehicular Amplifier Adapter (VAA)

MOST COMMON PROWORDS ROGER: I have clearly received and understand your last transmission OVER: This is the end of my transmission to you and a response is necessary OUT: This is the end of my transmission and the conversation. Do not respond. CORRECTION: There was an error in my transmission, I will now continue with the last correct word BREAK: This is a long transmission, I am now separating the text from the other parts of the message
