I agree as well.

In 2001, Rick Lindquist, [ N1RL  :o) ] operated from my station in Yukon. 
He took all of Canada in the CW Sweepstakes, which is no small thing.

It was his expertise that won the plaque which he sent to me, as the owner 
of the station, stating that the award belonged with the station.  I value 
Rick's knowledge in these things, but something inside me said that he 
deserved the plaque, because, as much as I love CW, I was and am still 
unable to approach the rates which he can produce in a CW contest.

Some feel that the signature at the end of our emails which include our 
callsigns is a statement that we are our callsigns, but I feel that there 
are unspoken but implied words of association.
