    All Pentagon/Army telecoms are like that - a throw back to the teletype maybe?

    :)

    Could be that due to some sort of unfreezing proh-cess he's having trouble controlling the VOLUME OF HIS VOICE!!!

    Primary reason is that some remopte sites have only FAX and caps are easier to read (depending on how good the FAX machine is). Tactical FAX machines are notoriously bad....and produce hard to read documents. Caps help alleviate the problem a bit.

    I know, everyone SHOULD have a computer but its hard to get internet access when the only thing you have is tactical radio with limited bandwidth and no capability other than FAX..

    Tactical Fax? Wow. A USMC fax is a PFC with a motorsickle and a grid coordinate. "Hey DevilDog, take this over to the CP. While yer at it, get some coffee and bring it back before the Gunny goes nuclear".

    I always thought it was a parade ground command voice reduced to print. Your way makes more sense.
