Blank Radiogram Instructions

The ARRL NTS system provides a standard form for all radiograms transmitted via the NTS. This uniformity ensures that NTS operators can quickly and efficiently handle traffic.

If you are interested in becoming an NTS operator or being involved with their efforts, you should contact a local NTS operator and work with them. This form is for those in ARES which need to use the NTS to send H&W traffic during an event, when they may not have a stack of the official ARRL Radiogram forms.
