I changed from KR1G to KT1V, a call with alot of dits near the end, and 
perhaps surprisingly, it works very well on CW.

I had the active help of the man of 100 callsigns, Dave Patton, who has come 
over a few times to prove my call works on CW. He was right - a trailing "V" 
is no problem on CW.

Now the "R" is KR1G was always getting mangled to 'N' however,

Ted KT1V, a callsign I love on CW
