    KG5GPK,

    You ID'd within the first 10 minute period. You ID'd within the 2nd 10 minute period.

    period.

    But more than 10 minutes passed between identification. That's what matters.

    One can't ID at minute 1 and again at minute 19 and be legal for two ten minute periods.

    At least not for U.S. licensees. Canadian rules may differ.

    Very true. I think Canadian rules are different, but don't recall how.

    Bob has it right. I get into lengthy qso's on HF and higher up the bands. I ID at the beginning and end of each transmission just to be safe. You can't go wrong.
    As an OO, I don't get too crazy about the 10 minute rule unless it is obvious your are not willing to give your call sign.

    Round here you might hear from an OO if you ID at the beginning and end of each 5 second transmission over a repeater!

    There's a repeater around here where that was exactly the standard practice for several years. I guess it annoyed enough people that usage eventually dropped to zero and now it's just another dead repeater.

    I'm just amazed how many licensed operators don't understand a simple rule.

    One could just state his call sign within the ten minute interval on the repeater input frequency, but that would probably be bad form. In reality, the FCC will likely not go after somebody for identifying at reasonably more than the ten minute interval unless the interval is much longer and/or other violations are noted.

    Of course, adding the words, "for ID" are not a legal requirement. ;)
