Hi all - my callsign is ECHO INDIA EIGHT INDIA CHARLIE.  If I had a dollar
for every time someone replied ' HOTEL INDIA EIGHT INDIA CHARLIE ? ' I could
afford that new FT1000MP I've been dreaming of.  Its not just hopefulness -
often the band isn't remotely open to HI.  Trouble is, there's not an easy
alternative to 'ECHO' - contacting S.America I am often successful with
ECUADOR ITALY EIGHT ... but elsewhere, it doesn't work.  ENGLAND INDIA EIGHT
isn't much help as some people think England is spelt  as Ingland - its also
politically incorrect to use in Ireland.  So, any suggestions ???
