Radio communication has become one of the decisive conditions for the effectiveness of the partisan movement. This assessment was given by D.S.Polsky, who during the Great Patriotic War was the head of the operational department of the headquarters of the partisan movement of the Bryansk Front. Radio communication made it possible to coordinate the actions of the partisans and the regular Red Army, to transmit intelligence in a timely manner. The organization of radio communications allowed the command to clarify the locations of the partisan detachments and establish an air bridge between the partisans and the Mainland, through which the supply of weapons to the partisans began with the landing of aircraft at airfields, and even in September 1942 it became possible to hold a meeting of partisan commanders in Moscow.
Considering the reasons for the unification of detachments, the Polish D.S. points out as an important reason the presence of a walkie-talkie: "... For example, in the Southern massif of the Bryansk forests, detachments were united around Comrade. Emlyutin, and the area of Novozybkov – around Comrade. Fedorova, in the Dyatkovsky district around Comrade. Orlov, who had radio stations and communication with the "Mainland".3 "... The owner [of the radio station] received not only directives ... but also material support in the form of weapons, ammunition, sabotage equipment, literature, etc. This tied other detachments even if the command of the latter, in terms of their combat experience and general military training, stood much higher than the former, and their detachments were also stronger and more stable in combat, such as the Voroshilov detachments in the southern massif of the Bryansk.
The headquarters of the united partisan brigades was connected by radio with 16 correspondents via a radio network. The communications hub was headed by Viktor Aleksandrovich Lomanovich, his post-war amateur radio call sign UA3DH.
