OOC: The group hasn't had a moment where it would be possible to do so yet.

ooc: Assume that all radio communication protocols have been taken care of before they got on the sharp end.

OOC: Justin has a radio, but radios have channels. Secure radios use encrypted transmissions sent on only parts of multiple channels, switching according to an algorithm. What makes the radio secure is you only give people you trust the algorithm and code key your radio is set to. While Justin has a radio, nobody ever gave him the keys to the group's private communications (no time as yet). So any transmission Alex directs only to the group won't be heard by Justin...but his radio IS mil-spec, and it will scan for unsecured transmissions nearby, if any are sent. Likewise, anything Justin sends to the group is going to be broadcast in the clear, for anyone nearby to pick up, until someone gives him those keys. I'm assuming Alex knows all this (even if the player wasn't aware), and I'll assume she 
broadcast that query. 

Justin radios back "There's a cave down here, and the tentacles are blocking the entrance. I'm going deeper in hopes it doesn't crush me against the walls, and looking for the thing's brain. My armor is reinforced for deep ocean exploration, as long as it's just water pressure, I'm fine. I'll die of starvation before I run out of air, if it comes to that."
