When you enter the airspace (at least that’s when I do it).

I call in about 20 nm out cuz I don’t want to make myself look like those type of people that call in from 23589235 miles out.

I call inbound 27NM away from the field. This is when UNICOM becomes available as a frequency. Then, report position once, not twice, not three times, once per leg of the pattern. And only call final a second time if you think another A/C is about to enter the RWY with you on short final.
