No Reply COMMS

Whenever you do not receive a reply, the first thing to do is wait (for 10 seconds) and then try the call again. It could be that ATCATC —Air Traffic Control did not hear you because of a synchronous transmission, that they are alerting colleagues, or some other reason. If the call fails again, then consideration will have to be given to lost communications procedures.
