    High risk sports and recreational activities

    Thanks for the heads up! BASE jumping is not illegal though. Try googling things like bridge day, Perrine bridge, MOAB. There are plenty of places that permit us to parachute off of. Not everyone trespasses to enter a building or climb an antenna. Thanks for jumping to conclusions!

    Rucksacks weight limit.

    It will hold what ever you can fit in it. Easily over 100lbs. The only things I have seen break on them is the plastic buckles. The zippers on the side pouches are kinda flimsy too. Other than that it's a decent ruck.

    CSOR and mosid

    Just keep in mind that you will still most likely do signals related stuff, even as an operator. Since signals is a specialty (or a curse) you will still be relied on for lots of radio stuff.. especially carrying it.

    "Jimmies" What do the Signals do?

    Just remember that the Sig Op trade is red.. Im not 100% on how the reserves operate but in the regs you would have a hard time getting out of the sig trade if you decided its not what you wanted. Just be aware that if its the combat side that interests you, you will have a long road ahead...

    "Jimmies" What do the Signals do?

    Yup, although don't count on it right away. Even getting posted to a battalion you will most likely end up in their CP at first. Usually the best position you will get is a Company sig following the OC around. They usually make infanteers Pl sigs. So if you want to be "infantry with a radio"...

    "Jimmies" What do the Signals do?

    I can only speak for a Sig Op. But on average, you are an answering machine. You will sit in a CP and do shifts on the radio taking and relaying messages. In between you can sweep and make coffee. You might even find yourself setting up mod tent/cleaning mod tent/unpacking mod tent just to pack...
