A reference was made here recently to a previous discussion on
callsign choices; namely, what makes a call "good" or "bad" for CW
and PHONE contesting. Ed, WA2SRQ made the reference, and I asked if
he still had the discussion captured or archived somewhere. He
doesn't still have it, so I'm asking publicly here if anyone on the
reflector might have a copy of the discussion. Ed thinks it
happened in December, which is right before I joined the reflector.
If anyone has captured and archived the discussion, I'd like a copy
of it mailed to me here if possible. Thanks for any help on this.

hans raises a good point. the proposed wording addresses previously
expressed concerns about grid circling. this is the practice
of pairs of rovers going out and "dancing" around the corners
of grids working each other. hans is suggesting that this
practice be permitted, so long as these rovers do not exclude fixed
stations. i believe the effect of this would be to encourage
rovers to go out in groups of two or more. this could result in
more activity in sparsely populated areas, where the number of
fixed station participants alone might not justify a rover
operation. 73, walt, w0cp

Subject: wanted: ss log data

i have been reading N6BVs book _All The Right Angles_ - it is a
very good book - and it got me to thinking about what arrl sections
you really need to be loud into to do well in the ss.
i have looked at logs from texas over the last few years and
can see what sections seem to produce the most qsos. what i
would like to do is look at this from other places around the
country and see how it changes. what i would like is the
arrl format of your ss logs either phone or cw or both.
this year or last year or whatever. if you dont want me
to have all of your log - then you can send me just the
coloum that contains the section.
i promise to post the results of this to the refelector -
i think it will be intresting.

*do not* post your log info to the refelctor -
send it to: geoiii at bga.com
