Recently have read an interview with volunteer (militiaman) who supported pro-Russian separatists on Ukrainian south-east territories known as Donbass. Politics aside, interesting notes on communications. Sorry for my poor transcription (even with gugl help).
– Comms were the problem?
– In our unit comms were very good. Nearly every fighter had radio, barely there was just no-go to the operations without them. 95% of personnel were provided with comms, surely.
– What’s the radios?
– I’m not expert in them. Were good, “Kenvods”. Were bad. TKF, i guess.
– That is, radios were household and had not a secure communication channel?
