Abstract : The purpose of this field demonstration was to determine the suitability of Junglebuoy as a means to extend the range of tactical communications in Vietnam. Junglebuoy is a portable linear very high frequency (VHF) frequency modulated (FM) radio relay repeater designed to be deployed from aircraft or to be manually emplaced in the field. It is designed to frequency translate and amplify any signal received on the special receive frequency, and retransmit on another frequency. After deployment, Junglebuoy maintains radio silence until an input signal triggers it into activity, and it becomes silent again after the transmission is complete.
