SET Check-In Procedure

When checking into COTN during the SET, do so by announcing yourself as follows:
  1. Callsign (in standard phonetics)
  2. Add "/E" (pronounced "stroke echo") to your callsign if you are on emergency power, e.g., a battery or generator
  3. Add "/D" (pronounced "stroke delta") to your callsign if you are capable of digital message exchange on the present session, e.g., Fldigi -- not to be confused with "digital liaison," which is NTSD
  4. Announce "new ham" if you got your license in 2011 or after
