Folks, please do not use the "cute" character that you think makes the
number Zero in a call look like a "slashed zero".  They two characters
are not the same and are not interchangeable.  Computers read them as
two separate things, which means they get sorted and stored as a
different call and may get overlooked.  If you can, please help spread
this to other reflectors and newsletters.  It will help us serve you

Thanks and 73
