'ey mate, i was just wondering, In woodsball some of the more organized teams use radios...is the opposing team allowed to try and get their frequency and listen in to their transmisions?

I find no problem with it, you can always lock a frequency and its not cheating really. They just found a weakness in a team, the weakness being they didnt know how to lock their frequency.

Technically...yes, they are. It's not against the rules, persay.

But it's not the most honorable thing to do. It's kind of an unwritten code. A trust thing, you know what I mean? However, if that doesn't mean anything to you then yes, you can.

It's just my opinion.

ok thanks for your help, i was just wondering because the last squad leader I had wanted me to fiddle around with my radio and find it while I was hiding... i just told him that i supposed it was against the rules, and that it would make too much noise anyway.

I dont consider it a dishonor thing at all, I consider it a part of electronic warfare, unless its against the rules of the field you are at.

Its not overly tough choose some call signs and code words to represent people and objectives for your team, and a policy of no radio chatter is always a good thing as well. Radios are tools with strengths and weaknesses and if they are used, its good to know and work with each! At scenarios, where we are supposed to be upping the realism of the event a notch or two, I think this goes hand in hand.

Definitely just my opinion tho!

Lastly, what is "locking a frequency?" I was under the impression that the radios commonly available to us operated on public channels available to anyone?

They're called ""Privacy Channels""......
If you want to be technical about it.......... :rolleyes:

But, even though that's what we call them, you can still listen in on other people if you have the 'know how'...

Arent those just the sub channels like are on my Cobra radios? 38 subs for each main channel? My radios cycle through all those looking for activity with a push of the scan button.

Do you think the military doesn't try and listen in?

Every major scenario I've been to allows listening to the other team and their command staff.

but not all radios have 38 sub channels, mine have 36, so i dont think the frequencys wont match up unless you had the same amount of sub-channels.

Unfortunately, Sub channels do not work like you think. They are FILTERS to prevent YOU from hearing anyone else on the same channel that is not broadcasting that filter tone.

You can bypass them and listen in to everyone by setting the filter code to 0. after that, you just need the right channel.
