New Voices On The Airwaves

Cadets from across the Thames valley have been learning the art of radio communications as participants on the latest radio operators course which was held at Bicester Garrison

The weekend course is aimed at teaching the necessary skills and protocols to enable both staff and cadets to be able to use the Air Cadet radio network and is a mixture of classroom sessions and practical exercises.

Overall there was some considerable success with 14 cadets completing the final elements required for their communicators badge and 17 cadets gaining their Full Operators certificate.

Flight Sergeant Jefferiss, the Thames Valley Wing Radio Communications Officer said “This was an extremely challenging course but a very good effort was put in by all concerned which, I believe shows in the outstanding results achieved”.

The students will now return to their respective units where it is anticipated that they will keep the art of radio communication alive.
