Dial-Tone's been fixing and building communication systems since he was knee high to a Thyratron. Ten years experience and advanced forces training has also made him an expert in the field of laser technology. To Dial-Tone, bouncing a message off a satellite halfway around the globe, and firing a high-intensity laser burst at a moving target, are essentially the same thing. So when he heard the high command was looking for seasoned troopers with specialized skills, Dial-Tone said, "Hold my calls!" Dial-Tone is also the unofficial electronics repairman for the team.

"Out in the field, Dial-Tone used to be the guy caught in a fire fight, huddled in the mud somewhere, screaming at headquarters for reinforcement. Now, he's the reinforcement, and the only message this guy sends is, 'Duck!'"
