Calling Frequencies
SSB, CW, ALE, or SELCALL may be used for calling or QSOs on the HFpack SSB Calling frequencies.
Standard
CW
Offset
Approximately +500Hz to +1500Hz CW freq offset is used on the HFpack HF Portable SSB calling frequencies. Cross-mode CW to SSB QSOs (Upper Sideband voice) are encouraged, especially when signal levels are low or conditions are not reliable for SSB-SSB QSOs. 
USB. 
Note about Upper Sideband use by HFpack
Upper SideBand (USB) is the standard on all HF bands for HFpack SSB voice QSOs, including the bands below 10MHz! USB has become the international standard for non-amateur HF SSB voice and other modulation methods. The HFpack and HFLINK groups have adopted the UpperSideBand Standard to achieve complete compatibility with a wide variety of commercial and mil portable HF radio systems that amateurs are using. With the advent of simultaneous "multimedia" SSB voice, CW, image, text, selcall, ALE Automatic Link Establishment, HF-APRS, and digitized QSOs on the same channel, UpperSideBand standardization will become even more important.

Primary Calling Frequencies
Traditional HFpack Operating Methods
1
HFpack Calling Freqs are open to all stations:
Base, Mobile, Portable, QRP, QRO.
2
Any operator may QSO on a Calling Frequency, but please be ready to stand by for breaks, and for any other operator trying to make a call.
3
There is no Official HFpack Net Control.
HFpack does not use formal net procedures.
(Except special events such as the Dayton HFpack Net).
4
 HFpackers observe courtesy and often use a round table "open QSO" style. Any operator may perform informal net procedures similar to a net control or relay as needed, to help the open QSO.
5
HFpackers take time to include all operators everywhere, especially the weakest stations and pedestrian mobiles. If you have been talking in a long rag chew or running a pile-up, please take time out to call:
 "Any HFpackers on frequency?".
6
 Base station operators are encouraged, and can help provide a "big signal" to anchor and protect the open round table QSOs with weaker stations.
7
Some of the HFpack Calling Frequencies are internationally recognized. However, we share these frequencies with many other ham radio operators. HFpack does not claim or reserve any frequency solely for HFpack use. We have VFOs.
8
If you encounter QRM on an HFpack Calling Frequency, please QSY to another HFpack Calling Frequency.
9
Please listen for weak stations and give priority to portables when possible.
10
Tip: Program the HFpack Calling Frequencies in your radio memory channels ahead of time. QSY by switching channels. This makes it easy to keep a QSO going with other HFpack operators in case of QRM or changing propagation.

Note:
 
These methods are not etched in stone, and they are not "rules". Instead, this is a suggestive guide based on tried and proven methods, developed on the air by skilled HFpack operators during more than a decade of HFpack operation.
 

HFpack is the International Resource for Amateur Radio HF Portable - Mobile - Emergency Communications - Ham Radio Information Exchange - Nets - Ionospheric Propagation.
HFpack provides an information exchange about transceivers, antennas, systems, High Frequency communications, QRP, HF packs, propagation, EMCOMM, new developments and
techniques in VHF and HF portable operation. Radio Amateurs are invited to participate in HFpack group forums and on-the-air nets around the world.
HFLINK is the International Resource for HF ALE Automatic Link Establishment - Ionospheric Propagation Research - High Frequency Communications - Emergency Communications.

About HFpack: However you spell it, HF pack H.F. Pack H-F pack or HF-pack, HFpack is all about: High Frequency Portable transceivers and HF portable antennas, HF antennas, portable HF antennas. HF SSB/CW/Data. Amateur commercial marine. Handhelds backpacks, carry-ons, HF pack manpacks. Pedestrian and Human Powered Mobiles. Manual and automatic antenna tuning. The HF Portable Antenna is a critical part of the HF portable amateur radio station. HFpack helps operators to choose the right antennas. QRP is an important aspect in HFpack for equipment and antennas. Telescopic tape folding and collapsible antennas, dipole, broadband hf vertical antennas. These are the things that make HFpack an interesting part of the HF operator's resources.  Battery solar crank alternative energy power supplies. Compact lightweight miniature equipment. Handsets headsets microphones earphones keyers. Low power TX/RX techniques. Portable amplifiers. Hiking camping bicycling kayaking and expeditions.
