How do you do a SELCAL check?

How do you do a SELCAL check?

The aircraft station should contact the appropriate aeronautical station and request a preflight SELCAL check and, if necessary, give its SELCAL code. When primary and secondary frequencies are assigned, a SELCAL check should normally be made first on the secondary frequency and then on the primary frequency.

Where is SELCAL used?

The use of SELCAL allows an aircraft crew to be notified of incoming communications even when the aircraft’s radio has been muted. Thus, crewmembers need not devote their attention to continuous radio listening.

Where is aircraft in SELCAL code?

In principle, the SELCAL code in the aircraft should be associated with the radiotelephony call sign, i.e. where the flight number (service number) is employed in the radio call sign, the SELCAL code in the aircraft should be listed against the flight number.

How do you take SELCAL?

When a SELCAL decoder on an aircraft receives a signal containing its own assigned SELCAL code, it alerts the aircraft’s crew by sounding a chime, activating a light, or both. The crew next turns up the volume on the aircraft radio to hear the incoming voice transmission.

How does the SELCAL code work on a plane?
