yeah, what I say. And cross-check these exchanges as thorougly as you 
cross-check callsign nowadays. Sure makes for a better copying contest, 
unaffected by databases and stuff.
Actually, if it was "my" contest, I would include a serial number, too. I 
like seeing from the numbers where other people stand.
