Exactly, this applies to both the aircrew and ground forces. The aircrew relies on what the JTAC has relayed, so ensure you (as a JTAC) are passing the latest/most accurate grids and markings. Another negative aspect in the report was poor comms. It's been my experience that you better have a minimum of three radios. I carried two PRC117s and a MBITR.
