low level

Good evening all,
Can someone please tell me what "I will be operating low level mean"
heard it today around Cork.
Too much verbiage on the radio IMHO.

Perhaps... Low level = out of VHF range = saving ATC repeated calls to that aircraft = less congestion on airwaves.

Just one explanation. There could be many more instances of verbiage pointed out "at this time" which "currently" could be dealt with by simply understanding the differences between affirm, roger and wilco. Irish RT has a certain homely humour it's hard not to like. I remember Shannon asking a heli pilot heading into Galway Races for tips from his upmarket pax. Every single tip given over RT lost.... Only in Ireland.

I think in the context of the OP's question the heli may have been operating below the normal minimum of 500 ft above the surface while doing aerial work :)
