Agreed Tom, I try to answer guys by name whenever possible, or in the mist
of mind altering runs atleast aknowledge them. Even if I don't remember the
name. I.e. "how's it goin? your 59 whatever"
And ALWAYS use a simple "THANKS!"
What's the difference between:
"QRZed Norway Mike 6 Queen"
and "Thanks! Norway Mike 6 Queen"
Hey would you look at that, the Thanks is shorter and more polite than just
saying QRZed, either way the pileup knows you are ready for more, but the
thanks just sounds better. At least it does to me, and will always do it.
