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.
