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.
