The competitors played it straight, but there are certain voices that it
would be hard to disguise. Chris ZS6EZ is one that comes to mind. I
sympathise with them - With my residual British accent, I can't get away
with anything on the bands. One day I yielded to the temptation to do
something a little "out of the ordinary" (unidentified), and a voice on the
frequency immediately said "Oooooh, it's NT5C!".

John, NT5C.
