preliminary call
In radio transmission, a call that (a) includes at least the identification of the calling station and the called station, (b) is designed to establish communications with a particular station, and (c) usually includes a request to the called station to reply, although the request may be implied by the recitation of the call signs. [From Weik '89] Note: A preliminary call may be made on a frequency dedicated to that purpose only, and the rest of the communications session take place on a different frequency or frequencies.
