Waveform vs radio[edit]

Sinncgars is both a series of radios and also a waveform implemented on several software defined radios. Either there should be a disambiguation page, a note, or the waveform information should be included here. There are several radios still in production that use sincgars waveforms. This could lead to confussion if the waveform is not at least mentioned. I will be glad to do the change if anyone agrees. Williambhunter (talk) 14:12, 8 January 2014 (UTC)

Maverick149,

Even though the original text may have been in the public domain SnipersParadise have copied it, made modifications and therefore have their own exclusive copyright. They also expressly state that the text is copyright to them. "Screen Layout - Design - Text - Pictures Copyright © 1996,1997,1998,1999, 2000, 2001, 2002 Sniper's Paradise?" You are more than welcome to copy the original public domain text to use in this article. But please state that the text is in the public domain in the edit summary and give the url. That way we can be sure that the text (which may be copied verbatim on a great many websites) is in fact in the public domain. --mav

No URL available other than the great many websites that this information has been copied verbatim on.

SnipersParadise has made no more significant modifications to the information than has www.fas.org.

OK - if you really think that this is exactly the same as the public domain version and is thus indistinguishable from it, then reinstate the article. But in the future please state in the edit summary that text was taken from a public domain source - otherwise you will be going through this same drill with somebody else. --mav

ARC-222[edit]

Despite what is referenced in several web pages (even robins.af.mil), Magnavox, not Raytheon built the first ARC-222. I found one reference to back this up at www.forecastinternational.com/Archive/dc/dc1879.doc. Additionally, I was the AF test engineer for the ARC-222 until Dec 1995, and I still have the coffee mug from Magnavox for the program.

Title[edit]

Seeing as how SINCGARS is an acronym I believe the title needs to be changed using the full name of this radio system with the acronym in parenthesis. Dmanrock29 (talk) 00:58, 7 August 2013 (UTC)
