Abstract:

During August, the Battalion was principally concerned with the garrison activities of maintenance and training. Approximately 100 men were in field locations operating four radioteletype nets and nine multichannel radio relay systems for training and contingency use. From 20 to 24 September, additional multichannel systems were activated for Eighth Army Exercise Capable Team. On 1 October, the Battalion deployed in support of Eighth Army CPX Focus Lens 11-18 Oct. Difficulty was experienced in the establishment of the additional six multichannel systems, and the last system was not reliably installed until 18 October. It is felt that this was primarily due to an abnormally high rotation of experienced personnel just prior to the exercise, insufficient CONUS training in second generation communication equipment on the part of newly arrived replacements, and to maintenance problems inherent in the new second generation equipment.
