1ST LT KENNETH BARTOSEK
1. CONSTANT WATCH 16 IS STILL BEING EVALUATED FOR ANY NECESSARY
CHANGES WE WILL NEED TO MAKE. THERE HAVE BEEN A FEW THINGS REALIZED
FROM THE EXERCISE THAT WILL MAKE OUR JOB EASIER IN THE FUTURE. SER IS
USING OUR REPORTS FROM THE EXERCISE TO HELP ALL THE WINGS MAKE
POSITIVE CHANGES.
2. CALL SIGNS - I AM IN THE PROCESS OF CHANGING ALL OF THE HF CALL SIGNS
TO COME IN TO COMPLIANCE WITH CAP/USAF REQUIREMENTS. BECAUSE WE
ARE BEING INTEGRATED INTO THE "TOTAL FORCE", USAF WANTS OUR HF CALL
SIGNS TO USE THE "DESIGNATOR-##" FORMAT AS OPPOSED TO "DESIGNATOR###" FORMAT. EVERYONE WHO HAS AN HF RADIO WILL BE NOTIFIED WHEN THIS
IS EFFECTIVE AND WHAT CALL SIGN TO USE.
3. COMM ROOM - THE COAX REWIRE IN THE COMM ROOM IS NEARING
COMPLETION. SOME OF THE COAX RUNS TO THE EXTERIOR OF THE BUILDING
NEED TO BE REPLACED AND THAT WILL BE COMPLETED AS SUPPLIES AND TIME
ALLOW.
4. TOWERS -1 HAVE ORDERED TWO 30 FOOT TOWERS. ALONG WITH THE TOWER
WE CURRENTLY HAVE IN STORAGE, WE WILL HAVE 3 NEW TOWERS. I AM
PLANNING TO REPLACE THE EXISTING TOWER AND INSTALLING THE TWO
ADDITIONAL TOWERS AS END SUPPORTS FOR THE WIRE ANTENNAS. WE WILL
NEED SOME HELP WITH MAKING ALL OF THIS HAPPEN. WE WILL HAVE TO
REMOVE THE EXISTING TOWER AND DIG THE BASE HOLES FOR THE THREE NEW
TOWERS. AFTER THE BASES ARE SET AND THE CONCRETE IS POURED, WE WILL
NEED TO HAVE A TOWER RAISING PARTY. I WILL BE ASKING FOR ASSISTANCE
AS SOON AS I CAN GET EVERYTHING READY TO GO.
5. SQUADRONS - IF YOU ARE A SQUADRON COMMANDER OR COMM OFFICER
AND YOU WOULD LIKE TO HAVE COMM GEAR FOR YOUR SQUADRON, PLEASE
SEND ME AN E-MAIL SO I CAN MAKE THE NECESSARY ARRANGEMENTS.
06 SEP 2016
1ST LT KENNETH BARTOSEK
1. WE HAVE THREE COMPLETE TOWERS IN THE GARAGE THAT NEED TO BE
INSTALLED IN ORDER TO MAKE THIS HAPPEN, I NEED SOME ASSISTANCE IN

41

GETTING WRITTEN APPROVAL FROM THE AIRPORT AUTHORITY AND IN
OBTAINING ANY NECESSARY PERMITS FROM THE CITY OF JACKSON, IF
REQUIRED. IF THERE IS ANYONE THAT CAN EXPEDITE THIS I WOULD
APPRECIATE IT.
2. AS SOON AS I HAVE CONFIRMATION ON APPROVALS FOR THE TOWER
PROJECT, I WILL SCHEDULE A WORK DAY OR TWO TO GET THE NECESSARY
WORK COMPLETED.
3. WE CONTINUE TO HAVE ISSUES WITH USAGE OF REPEATERS IN THE STATE.
WE NEED PEOPLE TO STEP UP AND HELP BY CONDUCTING NETS ON THEIR LOCAL
REPEATERS.
4. IT IS ALSO NECESSARY TO KEEP COMMUNICATIONS LOGS FOR ALL NET
TRAFFIC AND FORWARD THOSE LOGS TO THE DIRECTOR OF COMMUNICATIONS.
REGION AND NATIONAL ARE WANTING TO SEE DOCUMENTATION OF ALL
COMMUNICATIONS WITHIN EACH WING. THE ONLY WAY TO ACCOMPLISH THIS
IS TO KEEP LOGS AND MAKE WEEKLY REPORTS.
