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

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?

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.

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.
