Callsign format for PMR446?

Post by andrew30 »

Hey,
been wondering about this - do you all use your CB/11m callsign format on PMR446 bands? Seeing that PMR is more local, there is more traditional approach with a callsign consisting of a op name + qth, for example "Jake Plymouth", but it's a regional habit in my area, and not sure how far away it reaches.

Which calls do you guys/gals use on PMR446/433/ISM bands?

Mine's usually "Can you hear me misses" with the handhelds, being line of site. Gets about 100 yards (metres) around the local housing estate so no need to ID, turn a corner and it's "eh, what did you say?". I only use it for local. Max range is about a mile if there's no obstructions, like in the countryside.
The perfect face for radio.
