In OFP v1.96, sideRadio messages can be sent from 2 abstract sources: "Papa_Bear" and "Base FireFly". Use sideRadio on an array in the form [SIDE,"base"],[SIDE,"HQ"],[SIDE,"Papa_bear"] or [SIDE,"airbase"], where SIDE is the side broadcasting. "HQ", "base" and "Papa_bear" seem to be the same object. The callsign strings can be re-defined using a stringTable.csv file, using STR_CFG_PAPABEAR and STR_CFG_FIREFLYBASE. Example : [EAST,"base"] sideRadio "returnToBase".

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 sideRadio "#MySound.ogg";
