Dial Tone served as a telecommunications expert for years before volunteering for duty with the G. I. Joe team. He can tune in on enemy transmitter frequencies, locate their coordinates, then attack with pinpoint accuracy. An expert electronics repairman, he also holds the record for setting up a mobile satellite transmitter under battlefield conditions in less than three minutes. Dial Tone's main responsibility is to stay in touch with H.Q. and get the team to the correct extraction site. In environments where there is no radio contact, no reinforcements or evacuation, you're just a sitting duck. That's not a problem for Dial Tone, since he always delivers the message loud and clear.
Here's a guy that has to man the radio and be part of a firefight, in a place where you can't see ten feet in front of you. It takes a soldier with keen instinct and ability. Lucky for us
