The display alternates between your self-address
and the channel used for the call is sent. If you did
not select a specific channel, the channel number
changes as the radio sends the call on each channel
assigned to the selected net.
After all the channels have been used, the call

The bidirectional handshake is used to exchange LQA scores with other stations
without establishing a link.
A bidirectional handshake can be carried out with a single station or with all stations
in the net. It can be carried out either on a single channel, or on all the net channels.
When required, a message can also be added to the procedure.
After a bidirectional handshake with a single station, the LQA matrices of both
radios are updated. The operator can then initiate a call to that station and obtain the
best channel automatically.
When the bidirectional handshake procedure is performed with a net, all the stations
in the net update their LQA tables.
MICOM-2 will wait for responses for a certain time before entering the link state
with all the stations that responded within this interval (the maximum number of
stations that are accepted in a bidirectional handshake is 16).
(F2) to start the self-call.
(F1) to start transmitting.
The MICOM-2 can also be programmed to automatically initiate
the call to the station after finishing the bidirectional handshake
(using the BDLK parameter reached under the ALE programming
(F1). See details on
