    This guide basically explains how to speak professionally and properly while using a radio as a squad leader or platoon. 

     

    TRANSMISSION EXPLANATION   EXAMPLE
    "THIS IS…" This means "This transmission is coming from ____." "THIS IS ____ REQUESTING FIRE MISSION. OVER"
    "REPEAT" The word "REPEAT" will be used by itself. It shall ONLY be used with    reference to a fire mission and NEVER for regular transmissions.

    "REPEAT FIRE MISSION."

     

    "STAND BY FOR…" Used to alert the receiver of the message that important information is about    to follow, such as a 9-line call, evac, fire mission, or salute report.

    "PLATOON THIS IS BRAVO SQUAD, STAND BY FOR 9-LINE. OVER"

     

    "DISREGARD…" This means "This transmission is/has an error." During the transmission of a message and before the transmission of the termination word "OVER" or  "OUT," the operator may cancel the transmission by saying "DISREGARD. OUT." May also be used in conjunction with "ALL BEFORE"/"ALL AFTER."

    "DISREGARD MY LAST." / "DISREGARD ALL AFTER…. ALL BEFORE…OVER" 

     

    "CORRECTION" This means "An error has been made in the last transmission." Used in conjunction with "DISREGARD…"

    "DISREGARD MY LAST. CORRECTION…."

     

    "SAY AGAIN" This is used when the operator misses all or part of the transmission. Sometimes used in conjunction with "ALL BEFORE/ALL AFTER"

    "THIS IS BRAVO SQUAD. SAY AGAIN ALL AFTER….ALL BEFORE…."

     

    "I SAY AGAIN" Used on it's own to add emphasis or in reply to "SAY AGAIN."

    "I SAY AGAIN, BRAVO SQUAD MOVE TO MARKER FOXTROT 1. OVER."

     

    "ALL BEFORE"/ "ALL AFTER" If the operator misses a portion of the message, these words will be used in conjunction with "DISREGARD" and "SAY AGAIN." 

    "THIS IS PLATOON, BRAVO SQUAD MOVE TO MARKER FOXTROT 1 AND SET UP DEFENSIVE PERIMETER"….."THIS IS BRAVO. SAY AGAIN ALL AFTER BRAVO, ALL BEFORE DEFENSIVE PERIMETER. OVER."

    "READ BACK" This means "Say again the entire transmission" [or any part indicated ("ALL BEFORE"/"ALL AFTER")] This is used at the end of a transmission when the original sender wants to make sure that the receiver of the message received exactly everything and that it was received properly. 

    "….REQUESTING READ BACK. OVER"

     

    "CORRECT" / "WRONG" This is used in response to a read back. It is met with the reply "ROGER."  There will be 3 transmissions in total. The read back itself, the reply  "CORRECT" / "WRONG," and then the reply "ROGER"

    "READ BACK CORRECT/WRONG."

     

    "COPY"/"SOLID COPY" This means "I acknowledge and completely understand the information you have passed."

    "BRAVO COPY"

     

    "ROGER"

    This means "I have received your last transmission satisfactorily" and can    have a follow-up afterwards.

    "ROGER"

     

    "MESSAGE" This means a message that requires recording is about to follow and to be prepared."

    "MESSAGE. ENEMY TROOPS MOVE WEST AT GRID 464328. OVER."

     

    "I SPELL" This means "I shall spell the next word phonetically." Usually used when spelling out something such as a name or intel.

    "I SPELL FOXTROT ALPHA GOLF. OVER."

     

    "OVER" This means "This is the end of the transmission to you and a reply is   required." A reply is required to this message. It is used to end most   messages.

    "PLATOON THIS IS BRAVO, OVER."

     

    "OUT"

    This mean "this is the end of my transmission to you and a reply is not required." "OVER" and "OUT" can never be used in the same transmission because they contradict each other.
