1 SINCGARS FAMILIARIZATION AND OPERATION Primary Instructor: SGT SPENCER Assist Instructor: SGT LEWIS th MP CO
2 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 stationSTANDARDS: Establish voice communications with the distant tactical radio/network within three minutesReferences: TMTM2
3 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)
4 PURPOSEProvide 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.
6 RADIO COMMUNICATIONS ADVANTAGES DISADVANTAGES Fast Covers long distanceSecure capabilitiesSend the message to large amounts of people at onceDISADVANTAGESWeatherTerrainInexperience can compromiseRequires a power source

14 SINCGARS ASIP Keypad [CMSC] (#1) used to scroll COMSEC keys TEK used in channels 1-5 and may beused in channel 6. KEK used in chan. 6.[RCU] (#2) used to convert to a remotesystem. Can operate up to 4 km away.[SYNC] (#3) used during FH to sync RTto net.[FREQ] use to call channel database todisplay. “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.
15 SINCGARS ASIP Keypad [DATA] key (#4) allows you to set data rate [CHG] (change) key in conjunction with[DATA], [OFFSET] or [CMSC] keys toscroll through data/options.[CID] key is not used at this time.[LOUT] key rarely used.[TIME] key used to enter Julian date andsync time.[BATT/CALL] key used to set and checkbattery life in a dismount radio. Also usedfor 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.

32 MOST COMMON PROWORDSROGER: I have clearly received and understand your last transmissionOVER: This is the end of my transmission to you and a response is necessaryOUT: 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 wordBREAK: This is a long transmission, I am now separating the text from the other parts of the message
