Because of the mountainous terrain of Korea normal FM transmissions are impossible without relaying or

retransmission of the FM signal, The Soldiers of C Co 122nd Signal Bn  provide FM Retrans

to all the major command elements of the 2nd Infantry Division and provide NRI (Net Radio Interface) support

allowing soldiers in the field to access land-line via FM radio
