When operating a flight under these conditions:

  1. In the USA
  2. Under the FAA jurisdiction
  3. Given a descent with pilot's discretion by controller
  4. Operating on an IFR flight plan

Is a radio call required when vacating the altitude that was occupied when given the discretionary descent?
