Currently, we have [radio] and [radio-communications]. The radio tag has a much shorter tag info, and it seems to be basically the same as radio communications. There are 11 questions tagged radio and 62 tagged radio communications. We should either retag questions from radio to radio-communications, synonymize them, or clarify how they are different.

To me they are different and the radio tag info should be modified/updated.

Looking at the questions using the tags it seems that also for the community the two tags are not synonyms:

    $\begingroup$ That seems to make sense, I would change radio to radio-equipment and leave radio-communications as it is. There may still be some overlap, but I think that's normal. $\endgroup$ – Pondlife Apr 20 '15 at 19:08

    $\begingroup$ Do we need a tag for radio-communications at all, or would a more generic tag like "pilot-communication" or "aircraft-communication" be better? These days various forms of communication other than radio is becoming more and more common (datalink, satellite, etc.) $\endgroup$ – Lnafziger Apr 20 '15 at 21:22

    $\begingroup$ @Lnafziger technically they all use radio waves :P $\endgroup$ – Federico Apr 21 '15 at 5:09
  • $\begingroup$ Technically yes, but in common (and aviation) usage of the terms, no. :) $\endgroup$ – Lnafziger Apr 21 '15 at 15:52
