Does anyone have a daytime phone nunmber for Jon Casamajor KN6EL. He sent
me a nice map of the Northern Cal/Nevada DX Packet Spotting Network that I
would like to talk to him about.

Thanks, John Pescatore WB2EKK

1. Trailing dits, especially freestanding Es are a pain on CW and often lost,
believe me (says n6azE), so
much so that I asked Ken Wolff to add the option of a half space and
weighting to the canned CW exchanges in CT to set off and add punch to the
trailing E, and he's going to do it. Mike Baker KA6SAR, a great CW opr,
often contests from W6EEN, and uses greater than normal spacing to make
the Es stand out on CW.

2. I always liked CW calls that left a pleasing, memorable pattern in your
mind, like a haiku verse-- NM7T, and Dick Spenceley's KV4AA are examples.

3. CW contest call from hell: JJ1JJJ/9.

>5--  JY1 is the most kingly call on Earth.

HS1A might disagree.

When I was in the Seychelles I considered applying for S73TU as a callsign,
but requested something shorter for the contest.  What they gave me was
not quite what I requested, but I decided it was good enough.

I wonder if I will be able to trade in WA1VBE, or if club stations will
be able to request the call of a deceased member.  I plan to keep my
primary US callsign.
