Joining a QSO in Progress

If there is a conversation taking place which you would like to join, simply state your callsign when there‘s a break between transmissions. This is the reason for having a courtesy tone, to allow other users to break into the conversation. When one of the stations in the QSO, usually the station that was about to begin his/her transmission, will invite you to join in, either before making his own transmission or afterwards. Don't interrupt a QSO unless you have something to add to the topic at hand. Interrupting a conversion is no more polite on a repeater than it is in person.
