Hi!

It seems you're interested in being R215, or Sig Op.

Well, i'm a Sig Op, so if you've got some questions, let me know.

I was just wondering what the job of the Signal Operator was. I say some people with emlets (i think thats how you spell it...) that say signals on them what does that mean?

Well, you must be wondering what do the Signals Corps do eh?

According to CF Signals 'Bible' the role of signals is:

"To provide Commanders and their staff with the means of command and control and to deny the enemy's use of the electromagnetic spectrum through the use of electronic warfare."

So in short, we link all the elements with a communications system. These are very exciting times for the CF to be introducing the IRIS system of digital comms equipment. The IRIS system leapfrogs CF tactical command and control into the 21st century! Hope you are familiar with the AN/PRC 522, 521, PDT, CIs etc... which are the various components of the entire IRIS system.

And for some extra trivia, Signals epaluettes for the French components of the CF are instead "transmissions." SO DON'T EVER GO UP TO SOME SOLDIER WITH "TRANSMISSIONS" AND ASK HIM/HER TO FIX YOUR VEHICLE!!!! =P

I hope that this was rather enlightening!
