Hello All,

At times, I hear stations using their call sign suffix to check into directed Nets.

Are their any rules concerning this practice?

Thanks and 73

Thank you WB1GCM

But if someone who is familiar with G hear G's call sign but not the voice of G is going to get suspicious. And the question arise who is working G's station, and where us G?

Could T use T's call sign with a mention that G is the Control Operator?

Thanks and 73

Hello

I hope this message finds you well. I have a question concerning operational procedures.

Here goes: A General level amateur radio operator (let’s call this person G) invites a Technician level amateur radio operator (let’s call this person T) to G’s radio shack to experience HF operations. G will be the station’s control operator. G invites T to sit at the microphone and the T makes a contact. What is the procedure that the T has to follow in terms of announcing the assigned call sign? Does T use the call sign assigned to T or G’s call sign? Or what is the correct procedure to not get T in trouble for operating outside the Technician level privileges?

Thanks you for any help.

Hello,

I would like to ask a question about DXing.

What is the accepted, by convention or agreement, range to have a contact described as a long distance contact?

Would 2 stations 100 miles apart qualify as a DX contact?

Would 1000 miles qualify?

How about 10 miles apart, would that qualify as a DX contact?

Thanks for any information, I'm writing a term paper about HAM radio.
