Tactical Callsigns

Tactical callsigns identify an operational station or function. Tactical callsigns disassociate a communications site from the radio operators working at that site because on-duty radio operators work shifts and may be moved between stations.
Use tactical callsigns for ALL calls

Use FCC legal identification ONLY when required

The requirement for FCC legal identification is the following:

  • At least every ten minutes
  • At the end of a series of transmissions less than ten minutes
  • FCC callsign must be the last data transmitted (tactical callsign first, then FCC callsign)
