Hebrew to English translations [PRO]
Tech/Engineering - Telecom(munications) / Radio communications
Hebrew term or phrase: קש"פ וקש"ח
Is there a nice short term for these two in English?
קש"פ = קשר פנים, and in this case Intercom (internal communications)
קש"ח = קשר חוץ, and in this case External communications (I have seen Extercom used).

English translation:Int/Ext Comms (Int/Ext Communications)
Explanation:
"Comms" is the customary abbreviation for "communications"...
"Int/Ext Comms" would be the shortest way of saying it, but I think some people might find the juxtaposition of two abbreviations undesirable (personally I see nothing wrong with this particular case - both abbreviations are well known).
Therefore I included the alternative "Int/Ext Communications".

I can't think of another way really off the top of my head.

Extercom - it's not something you hear too often, and in all honesty I don't think I've ever come across it before. However, that said, it would definitely be understood by your average (educated) speaker as implying "external communications".

"On the other hand, in a tank a full system would be deployed - two transceivers, one receiver, intercom for all crew members, extercom for personnel outside the vehicle and remote control over field telephone wire."

...is one instance where Intercom/Extercom are used (in the context of radios to boot).
I think you have the option of using either my suggestion, or going with Intercom/Extercom.
