I have anecdotal evidence that November 5 works OK, but that Uniform
Whiskey Yankee doesn't. I usually alternate Yankee with Yokohama and
that seems to work. Also, Under Water Yagi seems to work. :-)
Part of the problem, IMHO, is that folks type N 5 U W into their log
program and the cheat file comes up with Cliff's call and they think
that's it, During a recent SSB NAQP I've even had an op ask me to
repeat my name and say "is it Cliff, Cliff?". No, bozo, it's Peter!
Stop using cheat files!!!
