Learning Event 2:
Situation - Tactical Scenario Environmental Conditions. The soldier is assigned to a signal unit
in the desert under very dusty and sandy conditions. The soldier must perform essential preventive
maintenance at every level to continuously ensure operable equipment. To ensure that equipment is
ready for operation at all times, perform scheduled PMCS procedures. The LDF must be inspected
daily, before operation, during operation, and after operation, so that defects may be discovered and
corrected before serious damage or failure results. Defects discovered during operation of the LDF must
be noted for future correction, such correction to be made as soon as operation has ceased. Stop
operation immediately if a deficiency is noted during operation which would damage the equipment if
operation were continued. Defects or unsatisfactory operating characteristics beyond the scope of the
operator to correct must be reported at the earliest opportunity to unit maintenance. When performing
any PMCS or routine checks, keep in mind the warnings and cautions about electrical shock and bodily
a. Tools required. The tools listed in Table 5 are required to perform operator maintenance.
