A quick IFR question. All of my instrument training was done at a busy class Delta airport KBED with its own clearance delivery frequency. I am now flying out of KPYM, a non towered airport but with a Clearance Delivery freq on the IAP's.
My question is what is the proper format for use of this channel since I am not at the airport whose frequency I am using. I assume that I would say something such as "Clearance Delivery on the ground at PYM ready to copy"? Further whose clearance delivery am I speaking too. The nearest airport with one is KHYA but it does not specify and the freq is different their so I am a little unclear.

We have a similar situation here. I say something like:

"Wichita Clearance, N12345 is on the ground at Jabara, looking for IFR"

Everyone must believe in something, I believe that I will go flying.

Also, if you are contacting Clearance Delivery from a non-towered airport, or even a towered one that has a seperate clearance delivery frequency and not through ground control, be ready to copy!!! They may come back to you with your clearance immediately and not give you chance to tell them when you are ready to copy. Happens to me a number of times but most recently at McGhee Tyson in Knoxville, TN.

I am not an instructor. Just some friendly advice. :)
