Just a quick check. What does the phrase "with you" signify in communication with ATC? I get the impression that it is not standard terminology, but am only guessing that it might mean a request for flight following or something? I wouldn't bother folks about it but I just passed my exams, am going to start flying again, and hadn't used the radio yet in my instructional flights so far. I want to hit the ground running and start out again by also using the radio. I had a "cheat sheet" for communication from my airport to the practice area, but when it's time to call up approach for request of practice area, it has me calling up Oslo approach, "with you xx feet overhead (area) request area xx" and I get the idea it is meant to be significant. To signify something like following but not in the approved way. Any light to shed?
