What should you do if someone doesn’t respond to your break attempts?
The best thing to do is take a break. The signal can span several blocks or miles. Wait until you get into a new range and try again. No one wants to listen to continuous breaks!
Don’t waste airtime apologizing.
If you are on a busy channel and mess up, don’t stress about it. Everyone knows there is a learning curve. Just try and do better in the future. If the channel is not busy, it is up to you.
When in doubt, Improvise!
