Sorry, I was rushing...
LAS = Las Vegas, McCarran Airport
Skids = Pallets of radio and communications gear which will be loaded on transport aircraft
LOS = Line of Sight high frequency microwave communication link equipment
HF = High Frequency radio frequency transmitter and receiver equipment (3-30MHz (megahertz) radio equipment). A relatively low, but highly effective
radio band and also that used by many elevated HAM operators.
UHF = Ultra High Frequency, generally a radio band above 300MHz (up to 3GHz, but this is kind of a misnomer). UHF now days is generally accepted to
stop at just below 700MHz.
800MHz = The largest general Public Safety radio band (fire, police, emt, etc.)
Cellular = all of the cellular telephone bands including PCS, 3G, 4G and others.
Jump rated = Parachute out of an airborne aircraft (I guess, not sure)
We're communications guys. "Can you hear me now?" (when people are shooting at you, or the world is crumbling around you, kind of stuff). That's
what we do.
Hope this helps.
