Well, that doesn't match the output of "pkg list" in the bottom of your

I'm afraid that ("-forge") won't work unless you have MS Visual C++
installed and set up.

That simply means that the communications package needs files living in the
signal package (the signal package is a so-called "dependency" for the
communications package).

IIRC the signal package in turn has some dependencies as well.

It seems you need to reinstall Octave and check that all Octave-Forge
packages in the setup screen are properly selected.
After installation, you will need to load the required packages by issuing
the Octave commands:

pkg load signal
<pkg load any other required packages, some maybe before the signal package>
pkg load communications

You can also simply do:
pkg load all
