"Roger and Wilco are appropriate prowords." That certainly explains
everything. Imagine some poor Bulgarian trying to figure out what we're
talking about. I don't know what a proword is, and neither does my
     Come on guys. Five doesn't sound very much like nine. In the real world
most people just say "yes" or "OK", rather than QSL, or roger, or
affirmative, or (gasp) "10-4". In fact, okay may be the most understood word
in the whole world, which probably expains why the military doesn't use it.
     And we're playing radio, not giving landing instructions to a B-52 full
of nukes.

I think you'll be pleased with it, Joe.  Mine worked perfectly for my 
600+ QSO's in the Florida QSO Party for its test run.  I was using a 
TS-430S and SB-220 to a TH7-DXX.  No RF problems and good audio reports.
