In my city there is a local amateur radio "club". People gather every morning on 7.135 and chat. I was invited by one of the members of this club to join. Turned out that people can chat on this frequency for a very long time without any pauses or naming their call signs.
What is the most common way to let people know that I'm here and would like to join? Currently I briefly name my call sign and it seems to work. However I don't know whether this is the right way to do it.
