- Unknown Rider Calls on GUARD (UHF 243.0 & VHF 121.5)
    - “Unknown Rider, Unknown Rider, (Position ref NAVID) with amplifying
    information (Heading, Alt, Speed, M3)” if able

- Is this me?
      - If a possibility that it’s you – answer the radio call (authenticate is N/A)
      - If it’s not you – Oakgrove will let you know
      - By identifying yourself you may prevent a scramble

- If it is you expect the following questions
       - Who you are – point of origin, destination, where filed, to be followed with
       course of action if any at all

- If intercepted
       - Fighter (F-16 only) may attempt to establish contact via radio on 121.5
       - Contact appropriate ATC facility immediately
       - Watch for ICAO visual signals, Annex 2, Rules of the Air
       - Immediate compliance with fighter aircraft instructions is mandatory

What happens during an intercept?

   • Contact by 3nm
   • Lock by 1nm
   • Closure controlled inside 1nm
   • No closer than required for

   • Fighters will deconflict with ATC
