Radio Transmission Conduct

It would be useful if radio communications followed a common pattern. Such a policy is currently being debated on the discussion pages.

A first draft policy by Sensodyne suggests that each station is held to identify itself on each broadcast, that all radio personnel should give their GPS coordinates before they speak, and a second set of coordinates if addressing another station, a third set of coordinates to indicate a designated target. (Malls may use their name instead of specifying coordinates.)

26.00 MHz: "12,27 PK sighting at 13,25"
26.00 MHz: "15,23 12,27 13,25 has been cleared"
27.35 MHz: "Caiger to nearby safehouses. Report Status."

This is under debate, as many players consider broadcasting their coordinates a security risk.

Radio Transmission Codes

These codes suggest a system to help spot important messages. Here are some example codes that you could use:
