Radio Etiquette

  • Please try to keep talking to a minimum. The radio is primarily for communication of cautions, changing trail conditions, on-coming traffic, vehicle issues, stops etc.

  • Please use the following format:

    • Wait for the radio to be clear

    • Press and hold the call button for 1 second before talking

    • When calling someone: Go for NAME/Lead/Sweep

    • Acknowledge with: This is NAME/Lead/Sweep, go ahead

    • Continue with your ask, please try to be brief as long transmissions will heat up your radio

  • If a confirmation from parties is needed, you will be asked to double click your mic. Should you have questions, wait for that to stop and then use the requested format to call.

  • If you hear a CLEAR RADIO call from someone, this is due to an emergency and you need to cease radio traffic.

  • Relaying calls

    • If an ask to relay is put out, those in the middle of the group should repeat the call as there may be terrain or an obstacle blocking signal. If so, please repeat the exact call again and once you receive confirmation from the other party, relay back.
