  1. Retrans

    short for retransmission, is a common symptom of equipment and technical deficiency that exists among military agencies. Military units at the brigade level and above may need to retransmit LOS radio communications, in order to integrate forward area personnel into the radio net. Usually, this is a risky operation that puts the retrans team into less secure, more remote areas. Additionally, these remotely located teams must be re-supplied by convoys, consuming further man-power and resources. RF propagation is highly sensitive to the terrain and structures within its environment. Mountain peaks can block FM radios signals, originating from teams situated on either side of the mountain. A retrans team must be placed atop the mountain to establish a line of sight radio communications link between these teams. When performing radio retrans, with devices such as the VHF-FM SINCGARS radio….Each time audio passes through a radio, it becomes slightly distorted. When audio is retransmitted through the SINCGARS, it will pass through 4 radios, by the time it reaches the listener. As a result, the speaker may sound distorted to anyone monitoring the retransmitted audio. When speech is digitally encoded and decoded multiple times, it can have a “robotic” sounding quality.
