  • A

    "Tower Bern" or "Bern Tower" as the call sign is composed of the area of responsibility and the geographical location, in any sequence.

  • B

    "Bern" or, if there are other stations nearby, "Bern-(something)", as the call sign is composed of the name of the location and an optional suffix.

  • C

    "Bern Tower" as the call sign is composed of the name of the location followed by a suffix indicating the type of service being provided.
