Communications has always been an integral support function for each of Civil Air Patrol’s missions.  More recently, communications has also become a mission in itself, providing radio expertise to other federal partners as well as state and local agencies.

CAP has an extensive VHF radio system in each wing, made up of fixed location repeaters  in strategic locations throughout the state,  as well as portable repeaters that can be set up quickly on the ground or installed in an aircraft. Most Illinois Wing aircraft support the portable repeaters.  There is also a nationwide network of HF radio stations, providing long-distance communications.   In addition, each CAP owned vehicle and aircraft include VHF communications, with some vehicles also containing HF radios.

Both VHF and HF provide interoperability with federal, state and local agencies as well as military units. Our partners look at CAP as an option to provide fast, reliable communications when traditional infrastructure is unavailable or overloaded.
