Hope to see everyone in the SSB Sprint tonight.

The Sprint exchange requires BOTH callsigns as part of the

It really makes things go a lot smoother if the person who is
going to inherit the frequency gives his callsign at the very
end of the exchange, and the person who must vacate the frequency
gives his at the beginning of the exchange.

If folks follow this convention, anytime you hear a callsign
at the end of an exchange, you can get ready to dump in your
call, after waiting for the QSL. Some folks don't even
wait for the qsl.

Also, if you hear two callsigns in a row, you know "The first
callsign shall inherit the frequency," and you can do a dupecheck
and decide whether or not to wait.

Of course, none of this is mandatory, but if the "vacator"
mistakenly gives his callsign at the end, he will probably
get called by two or three 1500W stations, obliterating the
other guy's exchange.
