Can someone please help clarify. I have tried searching all over, but almost all of the examples you find online and in books are for calling CQ on HF. I am new to ham radio, and recently got a few of my buddies licensed as well. I am confused over the recommended syntax when calling to a friend over simplex or a local repeater. Can someone please give me a few examples of how you personally call?
For example, would this be acceptable:
<My call> <Friends call> blah blah blah.
I get confused over the order (My call first or his call first) and also the position. Does my call go at the end? Also is there some common phase or sentence used when trying to reach someone? For example, "come back" or "do you read". These seem more like CB/Hollywood radio terms and I use them here only for context.
Can you please give me a few examples to put my mind at ease. Thank you!
