Sends the audio message to the group radio channel. The message is defined in CfgRadio in the description.ext file or config radio protocol.
The unit must have an assigned radio item (such as "ItemRadio") to see or transmit the messages. A radio item must have the property simulation = "ItemRadio"; in its CfgWeapons config.
When transmitting unit gets killed, transmission will be interrupted. However when receiving unit gets killed, the transmission continues to play.
If you need the transmission to play on all computers, you have to execute it globally (see remoteExec).

To transmit user custom sounds (see Multiplayer Custom Sounds Tutorial), prefix the full filename including file extension with #. For example if there is a custom user sound file called MySound.ogg, to play it on the radio use:
player groupRadio "#MySound.ogg";
