VO1MX and VE3DZ mentioned that poor enunciation makes it hard to copy your 
Section -- especially if the receiving op is not familiar with the the info.  
This brings me back to my Little Pistol question -- on SSB (especially if the 
signal is weak) which way is easier for the receiving op to copy: "Maaarylaand" 
or "Mike Delta (Charlie)"; or "Losss Aangeless" or "Lima Alfa Xray"?

I would think that the phonetics are more clear, and that they take one less 
translation step from ear to keyboard.  But I'd like to hear what the "real" 
phone op's think.
