1) I've been monitoring 145.130 a bit and noticed many folks don't say their call phonetically when the check in and say "listening." It's hard for me to understand them a lot of times. What's the proper way to ask them to repeat it phonetically?
2) I jumped on 147.225 this morning and it sounded like a newscast playing (some kind of amateur radio news)...I thought broadcasting stuff wasn't allowed.
3) When someone says clear does that usually indicate they are hopping off the freq or are they just done xmitting?
I'll get the lingo down eventually...just trying to listen as much as I can for now.
