Summary: Army Instructional film illustrating the setup of a radio relay network between Corps, Division and Brigade headquarters.

Reconnaissance and the selection of appropriate sites for relay stations is explained, and truck-mounted and man-portable equipment set up, tested and aligned. The procedure for switching on and setting up B.70 and C.41 radio relay equipment is described in detail and an overview of the resulting communications network is given in conclusion.
