RXMT REMINDER FOR NCS
o LOS is needed between you and the RXMT station, and from
the RXMT station to the forward/distant element being contacted.
o Overall best solution is for RXMT station to use two OE-254
antennas, with maximum possible separation.
o Next best solution is for RXMT station to use one OE-254 and
one vehicular antenna, again with maximum separation.
o Two vehicular antennas may be used for SC mode only; cannot
be used for FH mode.
o For FH mode, RXMT station requires two net IDs, as designated
in your SOI or SOP.
o For SC mode, RXMT station requires two designated SC
frequencies that are at Ieast 10 MHz apart.
o Neither CUE nor ERF will pass automatically through an RXMT
station; both require manual action on part of RXMT crew.
o When in FH mode, RXMT radios may be set either PT or CT
for secure message to pass from station A to B; but RXMT crew
can hear transmission only when RTs are set to CT.
o When net is operating in SC and CT, RXMT radios must be set
to PT, preventing RXMT crew from hearing transmissions. (You
need to switch to PT in order to contact the RXMT crew.)
o Many Army aircraft have RXMT capability; use when needed.
o Employment of RXMT capability is essential in some situations;
NCS has primary responsibility for RXMT use.
"Proper use of RXMT requires NCS planning and direction.
