Sending out a sound of signals for communication in cases where there is no direct line of sight or when background noise prevents other communication.
RECOMMENDED COMMUNICATION CODE:
the whistles must be made energetic and keep enough separation between them.

Stop the maneuver we're doing.
- Two whistles: indicate LI-BRE.
- Three whistles: Indicate DES-CEN-DER
Needed to untie the rope for the abseiler that means lowering it into the base or member that is blocked.
- Four whistles: indicates RE-CU-PE-RER.
It is necessary to reel in the rope from above because of excess rope which can cause problems at the end of the abseil.
Depending on the activities, other and/or additional arrangements can be made within the group.
It is always important that there are clear agreements before the activity is started.
