My call is running around in various "master" databases attached to "Jim" or
"Pogo" (sprint name). This time, I (and a dozen or so others), used "Bill"
in memory of WA9TPQ (SK Dec '02). I heard a lot of pauses as "Bill" sank in
and "Jim" or "Pogo" were erased from the exchange line. A few asked for
repeats. Several chuckled and then said, "Thanks, Jim". A couple asked
later who the guest op was....
I used "Poppy" one year in a Sprint (favorite cow at the time). I had more
trouble with that than with Pogo. Once in a Sprint, as a member of "Dead
Lizards", I used "Steggi" (short for Stegosauraus...get it?). Man, I'll
never make *that* mistake again!
I always get a kick out of some of the weird names that surface in these
tests. Sure more interesting than 599.... 73, Jim N9JF
