I belong to nearly a dozen email lists, less than half of which are related to 
radio. My "default" signature lists my name and company affilliation. When I'm 
on a 
ham list, I usually sign with my name and call, but sometimes I forget. 

What's the significance of the ham call?  In today's world of semi-boxtop 
where folks with Extra tickets regularly ask questions indicating they don't 
Ohm's law or the simple equations that define dB notation and power, what does 
that call sign mean beyond an easy to remember identifier?
