Using these messages can be useful during exercises, operations or emergencies to reach others as the messages can be accurately conveyed over extremely long distances. It is preferable to try to use messaging with acknowledgements for important messages. One of JS8Call's primary strengths is to be able to store a message at your station or a 3rd party, for later retrieval by the destination station (store and retrieve) so use this tactically to your advantage especially as propagation conditions vary, and also consider how special group call signs can be used to your advantage to target specific stations.
