The lower, the better

GRISSOM AIR RESERVE BASE, Ind. -- Tech. Sgt. Jeff Lassa explains to Airman 1st Class Scott Floyd what he should be looking for on a radio frequency analyzer as the two fine tune a new antenna on an emergency management trailer here Oct. 1. The antenna, coupled with an amplification system, increases the range of a land mobile radio from around two miles to about 25 miles. The response trailer enables Grissom emergency managers to respond to a scene and have everything they need for six days. Sergeant Lassa is a ground radio communications specialist with the 434th Communications Squadron and Airman Floyd is an emergency management journeyman with the 434th Civil Engineer Squadron.
