Back taxi commands - Unicom

In the circumstances where only Unicom is available, how are we expected to notify Unicom when back taxing in required?

Thanks in advance for your feedback and answers, I have found myself in this situation a couple of times now and interested to see what ATC commands you use.



As there is no announcement for back taxi, just announce takeoff. Nothing else you can do.

I would suggest using the runway crossing command instead, then send a “clear of all runways” command when your off the runway.


I normally announce takeoff from the RW I am back taxiing to. But really I don’t know of a proper way to do that. 🤔🤔
