Field Manuals: Essential Survival Guide FM 3-05-70
This is the essential field manual on survival. Survivalists need this resource for everything about survival in the urban area and the wilderness or country. Tactics techniques and procedures on every survive situation.
This field manual, or FM is a handbook that is absolutely needed in the library of manuals concerning SHTF or Preppers everywhere.
As a soldier, you can be sent to any area of the world. It may be in a temperate, tropical, arctic, or subarctic region. You expect to have all your personal equipment and your unit members with you wherever you go. However, there is no guarantee it will be so.
You could find yourself alone in a remote area—possibly enemy territory—with little or no personal gear. This manual provides information and describes basic techniques that will enable you to survive and return alive should you find yourself in such a
If you are a trainer, use this information as a base on which to build survival training. You know the areas.
Which your unit is likely to deploy, the means by which it will travel, and the territory through which it will travel. Read what this manual says about survival in those particular areas and find out all you can about those areas. Read other books on survival. Develop a survival-training program that will enable your unit members to meet any survival situation they may face. It can make the difference between life and death.

Field Manuals: fm 6-02.72 Tactical Radios
Joint Vision (JV) 2020, a conceptual template for America’s armed forces, will guide the application of combat power in the information age. JV 2020 predicts that joint and, where possible, combined operations will be paramount in defeating postulated threats in the future.
The key to effective employment of joint and/or combined forces lies in the JV 2020 tenet of information dominance. This concept envisions using modern communications capabilities and computers to enable commanders, planners, and shooters to acquire and share information rapidly.
The enhanced ability to share information improves the ability to find and target the enemy quickly and precisely. Joint and combined operations mandate the requirement for the exchange of information, both voice and data, among and between participating forces.
The fielded capabilities of the Single-Channel Ground and Airborne Radio System (SINCGARS) tactical radio have been effective in providing secure, low probability of intercept/electronic attack voice communications in the frequency hop (FH) mode for the implementing forces.
Enhancements to SINCGARS provide for the exchange of secure data through the evolving Army and Marine Corps tactical Internets, enabling increased situational awareness and more expedient engagement of the enemy while reducing the probability of fratricide.
In addition, the Enhanced Position Location Reporting System (EPLRS) is used by military forces to provide command and control (C2) data distribution, battlefield situation awareness, and position location services. Operations This publication provides an overview of the doctrinal procedures and guidance for using the SINCGARS tactical radio on the modern battlefield. This manual serves as a reference document for employing SINCGARS as a secure, low probability of intercept/ electronic attack FH communications system.
It briefly addresses the SINCGARS capability to transmit data as part of the combat net radio (CNR) system. This manual also provides operators and supervisors with basic guidance and reference to operating instructions.
It gives the system planner the information necessary to plan the SINCGARS network, including interoperability considerations and equipment capabilities. This manual also reviews the multiservice applications of EPLRS. This manual does not replace field manuals or technical manuals governing tactical deployment or equipment use.
System Characteristics The CNR network is designed around the SINCGARS, the high frequency (HF) radio, and the SC tactical satellite (TACSAT). Each system has different capabilities and transmission characteristics. SINCGARS is a family of user-owned and operated, very high frequency-frequency modulation (VHF-FM) CNRs.

1. Modes of Operation
a. Operating Modes. SINCGARS radios offer a range of operating modes to commanders. These modes include SC and FH in both cipher text (CT) and plain text (PT).
b. Considerations. When establishing SINCGARS nets, commanders must consider the mission, availability, and capabilities of SINCGARS communications equipment, electronic attack (EA) capabilities of adversary forces, and U.S. national security policy.
SC PT operations provide ease of operation but no security or protection. FH CT operations provide both message traffic security and EA (jamming and direction finding) resistant transmissions. FH CT communication protects both the message and the sender.
c. SC Mode. SINCGARS radios can store SC frequencies and offsets. SC frequencies and offsets (plus or minus 5 or 10 kHz) are entered manually through the radio’s keypad. When operating in the FH mode, two of the SC presets are reserved for the manual and cue channels (non-ASIP ICOM only). SINCGARS is voice interoperable with all SC radios operating in the SINCGARS frequency range and channel spacing.
d. FH Mode. SINCGARS radios can store FH data for unique FH nets. SINCGARS radios require four data elements to communicate in the FH mode. The data elements are: hopsets/lockouts; net identification (ID); net sync time; and transmission security key (TSK). Once FH data is loaded, the user moves from one FH net to the other by selecting another FH net using the channel selector switch (non-ASIP ICOM only).
In addition, users in nets sharing a common hopset, TSK, and sync time can also move from net to net by entering the appropriate net ID. The ASIP ICOM radio does not have a channel select switch. With the ASIP ICOM radio, switching hopsets is accomplished by switching to the NCS mode. Move the position select knob to of the army “load”, press “freq”, press “menu clear”, enter the last two numbers of the hopset, press “STO” and select the channel where the hopset is to be stored.
