FCC Technician Exam Question Of The Day (T1F02)

Q) When using tactical identifiers, how often must your station transmit the station's FCC-assigned call sign?

A) Every ten minutes

NJ2X Note:
During events such as Bike-a-Thons, marathons, and parades, tactical call signs are often more useful than regular call signs. "Milemarker One" and "Water Point One" are more descriptive in these situations. Remember that all stations must still ID with their FCC call signs every 10 minutes.
