“Alpha nine Delta Foxtrot standing by!”
We only say “Whisky Zero Romeo Romeo Charlie!” until they acknowledge us.
IF they have a partial of our call then you say “Negative Negative” and repeat our call once or many times until they have it.
When they confirmed our call they will give us their “Class and Section.” We will log that with their call.
Make sure that we have it correct or ask to “Repeat Repeat!” or “Again Again!” until you have it right!
Then give our class and section. “Please Copy… 3 Alpha… Mike November!” again confirm that they got it.
IF wrong repeat our Class and/or Section only as needed!
If all is right then say “QSL” or “Good luck!”
