CUE AND ERF. This method of late net entry is to be used when the passive method
did not work, or when you require additional FH to enter a net.
a. Load CUE frequency of the net to
be entered. Set CHAN to CUE, and
FCTN to LD.
b. Load MAN frequency of the net to
be entered. Set CHAN to MAN,
leaving FCTN at LD.
c. Set RF Power to HI for manpack
and PA for vehicular radio.
d. Set COMSEC to
e. Set CHAN to CUE. Press PTT for
4 - 5 seconds.
Then AT ONCE, set COMSEC to
CT and wait for a response.
g. Repeat after 15 seconds until CUE call is answered. For each try, go
to send CUE and CT to receive reply.
CUE call goes through only when the net is quiet. Because you do
not know when the net is quiet, the solution is to repeat your CUE
call until you get an answer.
When your CUE call is answered, wait for instructions from the NCS/Alt NCS
regarding net entry and receiving an ERF.
Once the ERF is stored, you are ready to enter the net.
