How about doing ARRL DX CW from Haiti as HH5H?  Run 555 watts and give out
559 reports!  Nobody would dupe you!

Certainly you jest about the report ... the only logical report for
a call and power like that is 555 ... couple dits and your done!

Trey's callsign is particularly memorable on ssb:

I believe that the TH7 and KT-34XA are so closely matched in electrical
performance, that mechanical differences should receive a lot of
consideration in choosing between them.
Fred is right - the TH7 is significantly more rugged. Also, KLM had another
problem with the KT-34XA plastic parts -
they deteriorated in the hot/bright sunlight of Texas.
The replacement parts were no better, I'm told.

Oh really?  Do you really mean WD8LLY?  Or have you just been the
most recent of many to bust the call of my good friend, Goose,
Suffice it to say Goose is eagerly waiting for a form 610-V, and
I think when the call comes through it will be worth another 10%
to his score to have a call easily copied and remembered long
enough to get down on paper or keyboard.

Thanks for the specific comments on the IRCI filters for the TS930S.
I agonized for quite a while over which CW filters to order, and I 
still have my doubts. (Since they are not coming, anyway, I can 
probably agonize for months more.)  Your comment about the shape of the 
9MHz narrow filter skirts is food for thought.

The comments I have received from TS930S owners on this List have been 
overwhelmingly positive about the benifits of fitting the filters. 
Opinions vary somewhat about which ones to choose.

On SSB, I routinely run my SCAF and DSP audio filters  with 1.8 kHZ 
cutoffs--partially to compensate for the totally inadequate stock 
filter, so I am also anxious to enjoy a new SSB filter set.

Think I will call and make a nuisance of myself....
