Can anybody tell me what building on CFB Kingston the JSR is located?

If memory serves me, go past the 1 Wing HQ building...look to your 11 o'clock;  can't miss it.

It's on the north side of Craftsman Boulevard, near Lance St. Craftsman is the main road on the base and runs off both Highway 2 and 15, and JSR is the largest building in that area - it may often be said, but in this case it's true - you honestly cannot miss it. (If you get to the range and people are shooting at you, you've driven too far east and missed it)

CFJSR is located in two buildings.  RHQ, 1 Sqn, 3 Sqn and parts of 1 Line Sqn are located in Bldg E-37 while Sp Sqn and 1 Line Sqn HQ are located in Bldg E-30.  If you are coming from the gate by the museum, follow the road around to the left, past CE and 772 Res EW Sqn.  Take the first right.  E-30 will be on your right with E-37 in behind it.

Exactly.  It is a very, very large blue and grey building, with lots of large doors, lots of satellite dishes sitting on the lawn, lots of big green army trucks parked out back and a large sign on the front saying who they are (Subject to change).  If you miss it, just ask for directions to the Curling Rink.  It is just behind it.

What's Happening @ CFJSR?
« Reply #56 on: December 30, 2010, 22:35:33 »
I was wondering this:  What exactly is going on these days with CFJSR in Kingston?  My last posting before getting out was 1 CSR (as it began the transformation to 1 CDHSR) and I know it was amalgamated with 79 Comm Gp when it was transformed into the Joint Signal Regiment after 1 CDN DIV HQ became CFJHQ.

Now that CFJHQ has gone BACK to being 1 CDN DIV HQ, what happens now to CFJSR?  Go back to being 1 CDHSR or what?

The rumour mill has 1 Sqn of JSR moving to Tac Rad role again and supporting 1 Can Div HQ as the Sigs Sqn, and 3 Sqn as the NCCIS/Strat comms Sqn for the CF. Someone instead the Jimmy Hive can probably confirm or deny.

2 (EW) Sqn was separated as its own Sqn, and now is 21 EW Regt comprising 2 EW Sqn and 772 EW Sqn (PRes). CFJSR would need to rename to Canadian Forces Joint Signal Brigade to absorb 21 EW back into the fold, and I'm willing to bet that will never happen as long as the Army thinks it needs a full EW Regiment.

The "2 Sqn" was going to be a mini sqn (a super troop if you will) of computer types that did IT/IS functions within garrison

Its not going to happen.  The idea was Poop-canned.

When did it get poop canned? I was there until 21 March of this year, and when I left, the idea was prominent.

It was never really there.  It was an idea that was being tossed around.  1 Sqn is going to grow by a few IST to accomodate the "new" networks.

A troop is going to be tac rad. B troop will be Tlan IST positions and EDS kits with accis op's as there aren't enough ist guys to go around. 3 Sqn is supposed to be garison support, although I'm not sure what they do. 1Sqn D troop handles help desk, it supply, and it support which is where I'm at,all together along with some lcss stuff if people have security clearances. Although the dust hasn't really settled after the change a couple weeks ago, so we'll see how it goes.
