  • 2-4-9. ABBREVIATED TRANSMISSIONS

    Transmissions may be abbreviated as follows:

    1. Use the identification prefix and the last 3 digits or letters of the aircraft identification after communications have been established. Do not abbreviate similar sounding aircraft identifications or the identification of an air carrier or other civil aircraft having an FAA authorized call sign.
    2. Omit the facility identification after communication has been established.
    3. Transmit the message immediately after the callup (without waiting for the aircraft’s reply) when the message is short and receipt is generally assured.
    4. Omit the word “over” if the message obviously requires a reply.
