Section 3. Coding and
Transmission of NOTAMs
4-3-1. PREPARATION FOR
In order to ensure that NOTAMs are
processed and distributed properly, data for transmission must be coded as
prescribed in this order.
4-3-2. AUTOMATIC DATA
PROCESSING (ADP) CODES
The ADP equipment is programmed to accept
and begin processing a NOTAM upon receipt of the ADP code.
following examples illustrate the proper coding of NOTAM data for
transmission by stations entering their own NOTAM data in the system.

transmission by a station entering NOTAM data into the system for a tiein
!EKN W22 AD AIRPORT CLSD
two or more new NOTAMs or cancellations, or combinations of new NOTAMs and
cancellations are transmitted in the same message, they must be separated by
the ADP code and a new line.
!ABQ ABQ RWY 8/26 CLSD
No confirmation will be received on cancellations.
4-3-4. TRANSMISSION OF
NOTAMs EXCEEDING 20 LINES
If the text of a NOTAM is expected to
exceed 20 lines, you must call the USNOF (1-888-876-6826) for assistance in
composition and guidance.
ACCEPTANCE BY THE NOTAM SYSTEM
a new NOTAM is accepted into the NOTAM file, a copy of the NOTAM with the
NOTAM number will be returned back to the originating facility and sent to
WMSCR for distribution.
!DEN 04/003 DEN NAV VOR OUT OF SERVICE
the NOTAM is rejected, a USNSgenerated service message will be relayed back
to the facility of origin indicating the reason for rejection as shown in
NOTAM Service Messages.
4-3-6. TRANSMISSION BY
When unable to transmit a NOTAM directly
into the system due to equipment failure or other situation, relay the
information to another facility and request that the data be transmitted
into the system.
Domestic NOTAMs must be retrieved via
National Airspace Data Interchange Network (NADIN) using the following
the location identifier and number are known:
)SVC RQ DOM LOC=CID NT=02/020
b. When the accountability identifier and
number are known:
)SVC RQ DOM ACC=FOD NT=03/040
To request all NOTAMs for a given location:
)SVC RQ DOM LOC=DSM
To request all NOTAMs for a given accountability:
)SVC RQ DOM ACC=FOD
