Doug Laurenson interviews Sergeant J. R. Shepherd an expert on
communications for the Long Range Desert Group.

Sergeant Sheppherd explains the systems and methods used to communicate
between patrols. Some experimentation with aerials and choice of
frequencies was required. All messages had to be sent accurately as they
were in code and could not be checked immediately at the receiving
station. Using the standard army radio sets, which were expected to cover
250 miles, Sergeant was able to communicate over 450 tp 500 miles
distance.
