Last weekend I finally threw in the towel and (mostly) sent "MS" twice. And don't get me started on the subject of having a call sign suffix, "TN," that also is a state abbreviation (and the wrong one, at that -- what was I thinking?).

That's like being in GA and later MA with a 3 call - both got miscopied 
as PA.  I've had many Out-of-State stations call me during the PAQP only 
to be disappointed when they got the exchange right.  Of course it 
didn't help that I was running 100 watts to a low wire.

I finally did move  --  to Texas.
