mutual aid response teams in emergencies . In this regard, P25

fills the same role as the European Tetra protocol, although

not interoperable with it .

ARQ – Automatic Repeat-reQuest, an error control method for

data transmission which makes use of acknowledgments and

timeouts to achieve reliable data transmission . An acknowledgment

is a message sent by the receiver to the transmitter

to indicate that it has correctly received a data frame . Usually,

when the transmitter does not receive the acknowledgment

before the timeout occurs (i .e . within a reasonable amount of

time after sending the data frame), it retransmits the frame

until it is either correctly received or the error persists beyond a

predetermined number of retransmissions .

COMSEC – Communications Security .

CTCSS or CDCSS – Continuous Tone or Continuous Digital

Coded Squelch System . Sub-audible tones used to prevent or

deny access into LMR repeaters and handheld radios (i .e ., FRS

ECCM describes a variety of practices which attempt to reduce

or eliminate the effect of Electronic countermeasures (ECM)

on electronic sensors aboard vehicles, ships and aircraft and

weapons such as missiles . ECCM is also known as Electronic

Protective Measures (EPM), chiefly in Europe . In practice,

EPM often means resistance to jamming .
