I'm not talking about experienced operators using a technique to help
speed through a bunch of callers. I'm talking about run of the mill
operators who have the mistaken belief that not giving their callsign
somehow saves them time.
The urge to ask for the callsign is great. I'm trying to discipline
myself to just call the station anyway, and immediately ask him for his
callsign before I give him my exchange.
