Yep. I used to be able to recognize my friend Rag Otterstad's fist, and
knew that OZ8RO was coming next. NOW, it's a blast of dots, and oops, it's
not Rag in Denmark, but now again LA5HE in Norway!
And, of course, most of us can remember when a VR2 was about to send a Zone
32 from Fiji! But there you go again, VR2 has moved to VS6 and Zone 24.
Jeez, I guess we're all just going to have to get our code readers out. And
maybe "ask" what the country is.
Short call signs are GREAT. I truly hope we'll hear more of them.
