Before you start blasting people for not knowing the rules, make sure you know them yourself. In addition to the AIP CTAF calls, HiCap RPT are required to announce at 15nm AND 5nm their intention to conduct a SI App. CAO 82.5 refers. So depending on what the aircraft is, it is quite conceivable that from an aircraft doing a SI App, calls at 15, 5, 3, and 1 will be made.

Anyway, I wouldn't be getting your curlies in a knot about the current CTAF calls. The washup of the PIR of NAS 2c has them being thrown out with only two mandatory calls for inbound and two for inbound. Watch this space.
