Lesson 2/Learning Event 1
Line ROMEO: This line contains the dose rate (cGyrad)/hr). The words "initial," "increasing," "peak,"
or "decreasing"' may be added. Correlation factor information should be included if shielded dose-rate
readings are reported.
Line SIERRA: This line contains the date/time the reading was taken. The date and time of the reading
can be sent in either local or ZULU time, however, it must be stated which time is used. Usually,
NATO forces operating in a NATO theater will use ZULU time.
The complete format for an NBC 4 (Nuclear) Report looks like figure 2. Lines QUEBEC, ROMEO, and
SIERRA may be repeated as often as necessary.
FIGURE 2. NBC 4 (NUCLEAR) REPORT FORMAT.

figure 4 on page 30. Figure 3 shows lines QUEBEC, ROMEO, and SIERRA only once. Figure 4
shows these lines being repeated.
