I must agree. A callsign is a callsign and these addenda make for more
trouble than they're worth. That's like if I operate at 1W in a boat on a
trailer on the highway.
Conversely, I wish those W6 stations in Maryland and the K1s in Oregon, et
al, would give some indication where they actually were. If I were in the
aforementioned boat in Ontario, all you'd need to know is VE3/VO1HE.
