Radio etiquette

identify drawbridge, then your vessel name, direction of your vessel, "requesting an opening"... They monitor Channel 9 in some (possibly all) areas. Listen to what other are saying in your area. just keep it short and sweet. Sometimes it''s customary to let the bridge house know when you are clear as well, if they have an obstructed view.
