Field Radio Operator

Most DFES personnel, both staff and volunteers, during the course of their service will need to use the organisation’s communication systems. While all DFES volunteers cover very basic radio operating skills during Induction training so they can use the radio during an emergency, a greater level of skill is required by all who are required to operate radios during operations and/or Unit/Brigade activities. The following manual will assist operators by providing information and skills activities that will enable them to use UHF and VHF handheld radios, base radios and transportables whether they be a field radio operator or manning a Net Control Station at Headquarters.
