    Formal message traffic handlers, click here for the ARRL Radiogram.

    Here's a few quick guidelines for formal message traffic:
    • Don't read the field names, just their information. Exceptions: start with "Number" and read "Hotel X-ray" if there is a value.
    • Spell anything that might be mistaken (to vs too vs two vs figures 2)
    • Break between recipient and text, and between text and signature
    • Use standard ICAO/NATO phonetics when spelling
    • Use "say again" rather than "repeat"
    • If the check disagrees with what you have, go back and check with the sending station
    • X (x-ray) counts as a word to separate sentences, but never comes at the end of the message
