Formal Message Traffic - Observations

So I thought we all learned a lot from the exercise of passing formal message traffic. I learned a couple of things that I'd like to illustrate here.

1. Pro - Forma:

as was pointed out during the net the message that I passed did not follow the Standard  ARRL Radio Gram Form.

You will note that the Radio gram has some more information the the FEMA ICS-213 does not.
for instance there is no Check number on a FEMA form.

You will also note that the Radio Gram also only uses 25 Words, Where the ICS-213 is more free form. I would like to see at least the check number on the ICS-213 form so you know if you got al the message.

2. Speak Slower -  I learned that I have to pass this traffic a lot slower so that people can copy it. including slowing down. also reminder to ask for fills int he middle of the message so that everyone can keep up.

Well that is what I learned, please comment below on the thing that you learned from the formal traffic passing.

Thanks guys
