Ensure that the radio transmission is sent by secure means on the AN/PRC-119.
A special format (Table 5-4) has been developed to assist in requesting aeromedical
evacuation. Rather than stating what type of information is being transmitted, a line

transmitted. The information is transmitted in sequence (line 1, then line 2, and so
forth). Lines 1 through 5 must be transmitted before the evacuation mission begins.
The remainder should be transmitted at the same time if possible, but can be
transmitted to the helicopter en route. The request should be transmitted within 25
seconds. Procedures for making a MEDEVAC request are given in the following
