It's actually at position 16.

See the below code:

declare @mystring nvarchar(200)
set @mystring = 'VMPIC 22:03:18 [ILS-1] CALL: 22-03-18 SPD CALL 71731,9053,9511,NORMAL,11-Nov-2014,21:55:41,21:55:41,22:03:18'

select substring(@mystring,1,15) + N'CALL: ' + replace(substring(@mystring,48,999),'NORMAL','1,1')

set @mystring = 'VMPIC 22:03:30 [ILS-1] CALL: 22-03-30 SPD CALL 71732,9086,9509,NORMAL,11-Nov-2014,22:01:17,22:01:37,22:03:30'

select substring(@mystring,1,15) + N'CALL: ' + replace(substring(@mystring,48,999),'NORMAL','1,1')

Yes, and you have given me no other information to work with, so I work with what you have given me.

Just change @mystring to the name of your field in your table in your query.
