What is Selcall

Selcall is a 4 or 6 digit calling system between radios:

When you sign up with a network, you will be given a 4 or 6 digit selcall number (Most public networks in Australia use a 4 digit system). Basically its a signalling system, whereby you can call a base station or another network member.  When the receiving station "gets a hit" on its selcall number, it transmits a short "Revert Tone" across the channel, so that station sending the selcall knows that the receiving station has received the selcall.  The radio that receives the selcall also starts "ringing", and displays the selcall ID number of calling station.

The selcall system is a standard feature on all Barrett and Qmac HF Radios. The Barrett 2040/2050/2090 can be used with a 4 or 6 digit selcall system, the Qmac can only be used with a 4 digit system.

Comments:

What is Telcall?
Telcall is the ability to make outgoing phone calls from your HF Radio.

If your network supports telcall, you will be asked if you wish to use telephone interconnect when you sign up. If you say yes, the network operator will normally ask for a $50-100 deposit to cover future call charges. Call charges vary, but are normally around $1/min, and are restricted to about 5 minutes.

Networks that currently support telcall are:
HF radio Network.
Radtel.
Reids Radio Data.
