Let's see if I have it right.
When I'm up to bat, I yell "N5RP up to bat"
After I hit the Ball, I yell "Ball hit ny N5RP"

Now, what do I do about my name?
Bob looks the same from the front to back as it does 
from back to front.
Or does it?
I'm so confused.

When do I give out my call?
Bob, N5RP
or is it
N5RP, Bob

I am going to update the station. Is there a consensus of the quietest 
computer to use for the station. The one I've got now is generally OK, 
but even with toroids on everything the are some frequencies that are 
noisy. Any ideas on the best make/model?

It is very easy to remember when to give your call...

Give your call if you are ready for sprint pouncers to send you their call.
If I tune the band and hear someone sending their call and I need to work
you, I will send N6TR at you without hesitation.

So, if you put your call at the end of your exchange when you are turning
it over to someone for their exchange, you might have some QRM for a few
seconds with several people calling you.

Some contest software actually takes care of this for you and automatically
does the right thing.
