Some of the most-common time-wasters among new contesters I hear are:
1. Unnecessarily repeating phonetics. In most cases, you should be able to say “nq6n five nine emm bee”.
Only if it’s really challenging or a fill has been requested does it make sense to say “november
quebec….” He knows who he is!
Not necessarily. I run across many situations where the station calling
me has a weak command of the English language, and doesn't recognize
his/her call spoken in English. For some stations calling from certain
countries, I always repeat back the call phonetically, using the same
phonetics they called me with.
