A callsign is a pseudonym that radio operators such as CAPCOM will use to refer to a specific person or group of people.
- The callsign for Mission Control is "M.C." (pronounced "emm-cee").
- The callsign for the Habitat is "Habitat", though "Hab" is also acceptable.
- The callsign for Earth Station 1 is "Earth" or "ES1" (pronounced "ee-ess-one").
In recent times, callsigns have come to be used as friendly nicknames, and have entered the general Spacesim culture.
