Hunkering down and keeping quiet hoping not to be spotted does NOT help the squad.

The only times you can/should lone wolf it is if you're trying to carry out an objective while the rest of the squad is providing the distraction, or if you're a sniper.

Radios are a great thing to organize your team and coordinate a multiple team attack or defense.

but if you let comms get out of hand then it can fast become a shit show... I love comms. I find the add alot to the game..

but I wish people would get the correct radios. Mixing FRS and GMRS is pure disaster.

Guys Get rid of your FRS... they Suck... they often can't get the range or clarity of a good 5watt GMRS...

My team picked up the FDC 460a for about 60.00 each with a spare battery and they work great. more durable then the GP68 and the batteries last much longer as well they have a much broader band.

you spend hundreds on guns and hundreds on equipment and the fricken cheap out on 25.00 FRS Radios...

don't

spend the $60.00 and get a GOOD UHF 5Watt radio...
and a good headset - all in all about 100 - 150.00 tops and you will be happy

On my old team (JSOC) we had a ex-CF team member explain to us the basics of comms. We then practiced it over MSN for a month. By the time we got to a large game, we were pro at it lol

Radios are essential when you don't have line of sight contact with your team for hand signals. Seriously though whoever uses a radio ffs learn how to operate it properly. I'm sick of people keying up and hearing the stupid beep every time your done a message. I cant count how many people i heard that from at rhino. It takes 10 seconds to set it up properly so you dont give away your position or the teams with unecessary noise. Also anyone and everyone jamming the comms talking about things that aren't important.

If you want to coordinate with other players, they're essential. If you don't care about that, then they're probably just going to a liability.

Could you possibly link us "noobs" to the proper radios?
