Ah, there's the rub!  People hear what they want to hear.  Frequent use of
the callsign may not be that effective in getting the call corrected in the
busted call-filled callsign window.

Also, the smart busted-call station will simply work them and keep working
'em and giving his callsign.  Let the callers have the broken call in their
logs.  There are risks in every category, why not 'assisted'?
