This is a mock radio call in. This method should be used as a building block towards your own unique call in that differentiates a provider. Below I will provide a brief example of a short, but sweet, call in. This call in is a simple chart that can be utilized as a guideline. Remember to keep it short and sweet (again, utilize common sense on this one). They don't care that grandma ate a pork chop for dinner 4 hours ago and takes cough medication. (unless for some reason it's pertinent). Give them what they want and save the rest for your in person report. Always say you're call sign and clear after finishing report so other units know the radio's free.
