Question Just one question...

Can we use this discussion also to talk of military/tactical radio-communication apparels?

Default That's not strictly Amateur Radio

But does anyone really care? The pictures I posted had nothing to do with amateur radio but they were kind of interesting.

Lets see who can come up with a photo of the smallest transceiver in use today. Civilian - military - whatever.

Unhappy Well...

Surely -NOT- the smallest, but the smaller military apparel I can think of (my knowledge of military radio-communication equipments is limited at best).



The tactical beacon or TACBE as it is often known has been used by British and American armed forces for many years. Its primary role is to contact planes or helicopters which may be overhead or nearby. The system's main use is a distress signal, sending out a constant danger message to AWACS planes. However, it can also be used as a short range communications device with local aircraft. Using it indicates that one is in danger and needs help. Its most famous use is by the SAS team Bravo Two Zero who, after becoming lost in Iraq (1991) and suffering casualties, tried to call in helicopter EVAC or aerial support to no avail.

Some pretty neat tactical radio-communications apparel can be seen HERE, that's the InvisioBone Mic from TEA Inc.
