I thought the same about "Minnesota", but in the report I got from N6TR
(OHMYGAWD, what a wakeup call!!!!!!!) in the "other stations who busted
exchange" section, a high percentage of the mistakes were folks who 
wrote down "MI" instead of "MN".  Maybe I'll say "Mike November" in the
future instead of "Minnesota".
