The ability to transmit gives you many options. One of them is: if you do not know if the "enemy" is in the area or has positioning ability, you can find a nice clear mountaintop a days walk from your location, go there, transmit, give false information and stay on long enough at full power that anyone with the proper equipment would be able to lock on to your signal, then stop transmitting and as fast as you can leave that spot and go to another spot where you can observe your transmitting location - then sit and hide and wait; if no one shows up you've gained valuable intel, and is someone does show up then you've gained very valuable intel. Without the ability to transmit you would not have this option.
