For sure. I will always try to give priority to Ambos and RPT.
I didn't call base as I'd called late downwind, which he acknowledged. With only two aircraft operating, no need for unnecessary chatter. Nearby CTAFs sharing the same freq were busy enough. I was about to call final as he made his rolling call.

If he used the active runway I could have extended downwind and let him get away. The first call he gave regarding runways was that he was rolling 19, (while I was rolling out onto final for 01!)

I could have changed to x/wind for 19 from base if he had given a call to let me know his intentions.

Can someone clarify re call signs. Does Ambo 1234 change his callsign in certain situations depending on the urgency?
