If more than one message was to be sent, the first message would have been preceded with "# messages", then the standard message procedure for each message would have been used, without the "End of transmission" in-between them, which would have been spoken at the very end of the transmission.

E10 was an extensive network noted for its stability. Its callup ID's could be divided into three categories:

  • High Traffic Stations, which consistently sent messages. ID's: ART, EZI, FTJ, JSR, KPA, PCD, SYN, ULX, VLB, YHF.
  • Low Traffic Stations, which sent fewer messages, but still operated regular schedules. ID's: CIO, MIW.
  • Non-Traffic Stations, highly irregular and without messages. ID's: ABC, BAY, FDU, GBZ, HNC, NDP, OEM, ROV, TMS, ZWL.

In its golden age E10 followed consistent schedules, almost 24/7 transmissions. Its transmissions could be heard worldwide. It was believed to be directed to Africa, east and west Europe, and Asia (at different times).
