    Those strykers would have more effective comms with the antennas attached.

    Headed to the range likely.

    Without antennas? Sounds like something a dirtbag squad leader I had would do. Then the other two would spend the rest of the day making fun of him... :notsure:

    Those are the new 3rd gen antennae. Lower profile for aerodynamics. :facepalm:

    Or the radio mount is empty and the squad leader has a handheld with a 10' whip. I never mounted antennas on the range! Got sick of my shit bags shooting them!

    You have a lot more problems if they are shooting your antennas.

    I’ve never seen range control give more then one hand held. You’re still required to have sc/pt comms with them. Not to mention, those are army dudes and the radios stay locked in the radio mounts. Also the post freq manager doesn’t give a sc/pt freq to platoons, not usually even companies. So convoys still need FH loaded for internal comms. Basic fundamentals. Train as you fight. Seems like nonsense until you have a crew that can’t even load a radio or perform basic ops.

    Lookup a PRC - 152 and I assure you no radio stays locked into a vehicle mount when not deployed. I was a live fire coyote and shooting antennas is more common than you expect. LOL.

    Don’t have to, we had them... locked in radio mounts, in garrison. :D

    Even if we didn’t, they should and would be loaded prior to heading to the range. Just saying. I only retired 5 years ago, I can promise the Army hasn’t changed that much.

    Marines- you might do it different, those are army dudes though. Maybe you guys half ass things? Never thought so, but I’ve been wrong before. :D:boink:

    Yes in the Marine Corps we actually do our best to safeguard our country's crypto capable equipment. As for us half assing things. Never found the need to defend my service to yours. Let me check, yep today sure as fuck is not the day I start!

    Thank you for your service. All I was pointing out is that it's not uncommon when in a training enviroment. Also many vehicles have several mounts. With Sat comms now in some places they don't even apply. No offence intended.

    It was a friendly jab, relax... also I don’t think having zeroed out radios, locked in a radio mount, designed for that purpose is risking the countries crypto. That’s also a basic procedure, zero out the radios.

    You’re being overly dramatic and over sensitive about the half ass thing, so we can just end what I thought was a friendly argument/debate. I’ll go back to firing shots with @Pchop who can take a joke between branches.

    LOL, cool! Dude we had old POS radios locked into every crappy old POS in the motor T lot. I was just effing with you because you got all high and mighty over an antenna.

    Had an exercise force lose the key to a CYZ10 one time. That was an ordeal! Just screwing around though. I have to hate the Army! It's who I am! You are correct though, probably some shit bags. I will play nice.

    Not high and mighty, it was more to dig at @G.T. ’s meme. Guess neither of us read the sarcasm.

    Although, in reality that stryker is a shit show and is typically fobbit behavior. Units and branches have different standards and SOPs, but the stuff I said are typically the basics in the army when you roll out your vehicles.
