Re: "You're 10kc wide"
When telemarketers from other long distance companies call me
and want me to switch to their service, I like to say "Hello?
Hello? Can you speak up? I can barely HEAR you! This connection
Maybe you can use a twist on this tactic: when someone tells
you you're too wide, just say "Wow I think someone is calling
but there is so much distortion that I can't be sure... QRZ contest.."
(Just KIDDING! I wouldn't use that tactic on the air to fellow
hams, but whatever fun I can extract from solicitors who
call me on the telephone is fair game). 73, Dave, N6KL
