A note about Comm usage

Unread post by J5_Gamecock » 12 Sep 2018, 23:45

Although not written in the BS rules, we would like to keep the same comms protocol that we use in BA. This is standard for J5 events.

In a nutshell....

1- Different flights should be on different channels. A group taking off from a field in the north should not be in communication with a group from a field in the south. There are some exceptions, a group that is assigned to rendezvous with a bomber or recon in order to escort him may be on the same channel. Also, a group that gets separated or splits up during the flight may remain on the same assigned channel.

2- Once in flight you should not change channels or communicate with anyone that wasn't on your channel when you took off. Please stay on your assigned channel until you have landed or been forced down/killed. Then you can communicate with your commander, who can relay any info to another group once they have landed.

3- Avoid joining the channel of a group "still in the air" , unless it is to act as a gunner or if you are arriving late and are going to be joining that group.

The idea here is to try to keep the flow of information to a minimum. Pilots in the Great War were unable to react to events not in their immediate vicinity in "real time". We've found in the past that following these rules helps create a more historic, exciting and yes, frustrating event.



Thanks

Oh, I had no notion of this. We had the very opposite on Mission 1. Will spread the word.
