    Marine Minute: Can you Hear Me Now?

    Marine Minute: Can you Hear Me Now?



    Audio by Cpl. Nathan Hall 

    Defense Media Activity - Marines

    I'm Corporal Nathan Hall with your Marine Minute.

    The Comm community is doing something pretty cool this week.

    Marines with 2nd battalion, 2nd Marine Regiment carry out high-
    frequency long distance communications training in Okinawa,

    This training helps 1st and 3rd Marine Division maintain a low
    electromagnetic signature that is resistant to interception,
    jamming, and interference, which allows for distributed
    operations without detection in the operating environment.

    U.S Marine Corps Sergeant, Assistant Radio Chief, Chase
    Schmidt had this to say about the training.

    “Out here doing a long shot from Okinawa, Camp Schwab to
    Camp Pendleton, California. Just high frequency training
    shooting long distances seeing if we can talk back and forward
    between us. It’s important to communicate with 1 st marine
    division because we have to communicate with our allies even if
    they’re not next to us. If were talking tactically to them then
    we’re going to fight better.”

    That's it for your Marine Minute, for more news around the Corps go to
