Pocket Reference of C2 List Calls

List Update 10/95

Newly Revised!
© April 1996 Ben Rubright

The following is a shorthand description of the C2 list calls as defined by the Challenge Committee of Callerlab. It is intended to be a guide for quick reference and not necessarily a place from which to initially learn the calls.

The purpose of this collection is to provide an alphabetical listing of the calls for both study and quick reference during practice sessions without the need for an index.

Thanks to all who have fed back comments, corrections, and suggestions.

All comments are welcome: xtraben@ix.netcom.com.
