Group call – call directed to a group of individually selected
stations. Groups can be preprogrammed, but you can also
select the stations to be called and save the selection for
reuse. Up to five groups can be defined.
AnyCall – call directed to all the other stations
simultaneously, usually used to detect new stations.
Wildcard call – call simultaneously addressed to a selected
group of stations within a net, with wildcards used within
the address to specify the desired stations. Wildcard calls
use the special ALE addressing modes. If you are not
familiar with these modes, you should review pages 7 to 11.
Self call – call using the station's own address, generally
used for test purposes.
An AllCall is a message which your radio uses to establish a connection with all the
other stations simultaneously, and is typically used to broadcast a message or send a
distress call. An AllCall can also include a message.
In addition to this type of AllCall (referred to as a global (GL) AllCall), it is also
possible to use selective (SL) AllCall: this is a simultaneous call addressed only to all
the stations whose names (addresses) end with a character you specify.
You cannot select the channel on which an outgoing AllCall will be sent: outgoing
AIICalls are sent on the AllCall channel defined for the currently selected net, or on
the best scanned channel of the net.
There are two ways to send a global AllCall: using the
function. A selective AllCall can be sent only using the CALL function.
If so required, you can set your radio so that it cannot send
When radios in other nets have their MultiNet feature enabled,
AIICalls may also reach these radios. See details on page 11.
