Frequency Change Procedure Via Visual Signals.
1.
Lead
a.
Lead will check Wing in position and area clear. Wing should recognize something
is about to be commanded for the formation.
b.
Lead passes the introductory signal for radio frequency change by tapping his helmet
near the earphone three times.
c.
Lead passes the frequency to Wing. If the frequency is a preset, Lead will hold the
number of fingers up for channel the section is switching to. If the frequency is
manual, Lead will give the manual frequency preparatory signal, then pass the manual
frequency one number at a time. (See Chapter 9 for an expanded explanation).
d.
Lead should look forward to clear for the formation as he passes the visual signal.
Once the signal is passed, Lead will quickly glance at Wing to look for an
acknowledgement the signal was received and understood. (Wing will acknowledge
with a head nod).
2.
Wing
a.
Observe Lead's frequency change signal. When Lead looks over, Wing will
acknowledge the signal with a head nod. Wing will shake off the signal if he does not
understand the frequency given by Lead.
b.
Switch to the new frequency while maintaining the parade position.
3.
Lead will allow the Wingman time to switch frequencies and then check in the formation
on the new frequency when there is a break in transmissions.
Lead: "[Tac Callsign]."
4.
Wing will respond to the check-in.
Wing: "Two."
5.
Lead should listen for a break in transmissions and then talk to the new agency if
applicable.
Example: "Corpus approach, Boomer 723, flight of two with information alpha."
