External  Communications,  Continued Method Flashing  Light Semaphore Description Searchlights  equipped  with  special  shutters  and  red lenses  are  used  at  night  to  send  messages  or  signals. Standard  Morse  code  is  transmitted  to  the  receiving ship  by  Signalmen Semaphore  is  much  faster  than  flashing  light  when transmitting  messages  over  a  short  distance.  It  is normally  used  while  ships  are  alongside  conducting UNREP. Signalmen  send  the  messages  using  hand  flags  or  light wands. Responsibilities As  you  continue  to  advance  as  a  QM,  you  will  be  required  to  gain experience  in  the  use  of  the  methods  of  external  communication  as listed.  As  a  PO2  or  PO3,  you  are  required  to  be  able  to  read  signal flags  and  pennants.  As  step-by-step  instructions  are  given  in  ACP  129, Communication  Instructions,  Visual  Signalling  Procedures,  they  will  not be  repeated  here. At  the  PO1  and  higher  paygrades,  you  are  required  to  encode  and decode  tactical  signals. Instructions  to  meet  this  requirement  are  found in  ATP,  Allied  Tactical  Publication  lB,  Volumes  I  and  II.  OJT  is  really the  only  way  to  become  proficient  at  encoding,  decoding,  and transmitting  tactical  signals. The  navigator  can  normally  set  up  training through  the  operations  boss  on  this  material. Exchanging Navigational Data Occasions  will  arise  when  the  exchange  of  navigational  data  with  other ships is necessary. In  general  terms,  a  position,  time  of  position,  and course  and  speed  are  all  that  is  required.  Navigational  data  must  never be  exchanged  on  unsecured  frequencies.  Always  notify  the  navigator when  an  exchange  of  navigational  data  is  requested. 11-20
