Yes, I think this would be great!  Lot's of folks have trouble with my
call (except those of worked hundreds of times!), and I think an extra
half space would really help. Besides having my call, "WD4AHZ" in F4,
for CQWW and the 10 Meter Contest, I put it in as "W D 4 A H Z" (with a
full space between letters) in F6 for those who still had troubles with
it, but it just didn't sound right ... but they got my call that way
just fine!  It would also help quite a bit to use it when sending serial
numbers, since a lot of times they just seem to run together (especially
with the higher speed guys).  Just a fraction of a second pause, I
think, would make copying numbers just a tad easier ... and maybe reduce
the need for fills (even with cut numbers).

have the "memory" problem that I've had before when I'd upgrade to a new
