in the modern day.. the term "signaller" is a bit of a misnomer.

yes.. your basic signaller is the one that will carry a manpack radio for the platoon or company commander. so you will need to know about your equipment, voice comms procedure, networks etc.

but it can also be much more than that. at division/ brigade levels, the amount and complexity of signalling impose different requirements..

and of course, there is also the intelligence gathering aspect of signalling

Infocomm2 should be basic signallers. Carry manpack (VHF/HF) set or rebro or landrover and line. You'll learn that the spaggetti D10 cables are very useful. :bsmilie: Its likely you'll be posted to a unit as a signaller. If lucky, you'll go to a brigade. Stagmont camp is chalet but you better pray hard the unit you posted to after graduating will be slack too.

For Div level, its trunk/sat comms. Should be infocomm1. Me Div Signaller. Going for overseas ICT this Nov. :confused:
