Preamble

1. NUMBER - Station of Origin's message number.  Use any number you want and only numbers. This is to identify the message through the NTS System. Never precede the number with a zero.

2. PRECEDENCE:

• Emergency [EMERGENCY] Spell out in full (Life or death). Handle as quickly as possible.

• Priority [P] - (Urgent). Handle after EMERGENCY traffic.

• Welfare [W] - Inquiry or report as to health or welfare of an individual in the disaster area.

• Routine [R] - (All other messages). Handle last.

3. HX (Handling Instructions) - OPTIONAL

HXA followed by a number - Collect telephone delivery authorized by addressee within ___ miles. e.g. HXA100

HXB followed by a number - Cancel if not delivered within ___ hours of filing, and advise the originating station. e.g. HXB36

HXC - Report time and date of delivery to originating station.

HXD - Report to originating station identity of station from which received plus date and time. Report identity of station to which relayed plus date and time. Report identify of station to which relayed, plus date and time, or if delivered report date, time and method of delivery.

HXF followed by a number - Hold delivery until ___ (insert date). e.g. HXF/21

HXG - Delivery by mail or toll call not required. If toll or other expense involved, cancel and advise originating station.

4. STATION OF ORIGIN - This is the first station that wrote or helped write the message and bring to a NTS Net for relay.

5. CHECK -  This is the number of words or groups in the text message. Helps the receiving station to count the words in the text. They must match the senders amount. If you use a ARRL numbered radiogram them put ARL before the check number in the check box.

6. PLACE OF ORIGIN - This is the actual place where the message started from, not necessarily the location of the Station of Origin. For example if you originate a message for a person in a town that is not your own, use that person's own town. Otherwise, use your own location.

7. TIME FILED - Time the message was written. Not necessary for Routine traffic but should be used for Emergency or Priority traffic. Time should be UTC, not local time.

8. DATE - Date the message was written. Date should be correct for UTC time.

ADDRESSEE

9. TO - Get complete information from person for whom you are sending the message. Name, and complete address are necessary to get the message to the right person as quickly as possible. Long zip codes are not necessary.

10. TELEPHONE NUMBER - If possible a number including area code should be included.

Text 

11. TEXT - The text is what the sender wants to tell the addressee, and should sound like a telegram - clear and concise and written so the meaning cannot be misconstrued. Text should be limited to 25 words and be NON-COMMERCIAL in nature. Phone numbers are broken into area code, exchange and number and are counted as three words. Periods or spaces are noted as X (X-Ray) and there is no X at the end of text. Each separator or X (X-ray) counts as 1 word. Closings such as “Love” and “Best Regards” are counted as words of text. When sending, a “Break” precedes and follows the text. If you have more than 25 words make 2 messages.

Signature

12. SIGNATURE - The signature identifies the person sending the message. As an OP Note, Additional identifying information may be added to the signature. Not counted in word count. As an example you could put the address and phone number for a message back to the message originator.
