Note. The NCS acknowledges and the net is closed.

Note. The following call signs are used in this task as examples: Net call sign - E3E, NCS - E46, S1 - E39, S2 - E13.

Evaluation Preparation: 

Setup: Position operational radio sets in different rooms or tents or at least 70 feet apart outside. Obtain call signs, suffixes, and a radio frequency through the normal command chain. Select a message (15 to 25 words) containing some number groups such as map coordinates and times. Print the call signs for the sender and the receiver, along with the message to be sent, on 5 x 8 cards. Perform a communications check to ensure operation of the radios. Have an assistant who is proficient in radio operation man the NCS. Provide the assistant with the call signs. If the soldier has not demonstrated sufficient progress to complete the task within five minutes, give him a NO GO. This time limit is an administrative requirement, not a doctrinal one. If the soldier has almost completed the task correctly, you may decide to allow him to finish.

Brief Soldier: Give the soldier the card containing the message and call signs. Tell him the radio is ready for operation, the net is considered to be secure and authentication is not required, and to send the message to the NCS and get a receipt. Tell the soldier that, if sufficient progress in completing the task within five minutes has not been demonstrated, he will receive a NO GO for the task.
