Back to Radio Protocol or Communications Rigs

Only one player can use the net at a time in airsoft which uses simplex radio communications (only one channel is used for both transmitting and receiving). So a player occupying the channel for a long message stops other players from sending their messages. Messages which could include distress calls from base or other critical messages.

The best way to keep the channel open is to use short messages and message segments. The following table lists examples players in Vancouver will find useful.

For how to use the vocabulary below, refer to the Radio Protocol and Brevity.
